Accountability is one of the key pillars of the GDPR. Organisations are to ensure their privacy program meets the legal requirements and need to be able to demonstrate this upon request. Those organisations already working with Binding Corporate Rules (now codified in Article 47 GDPR), are already familiar with the need to be accountable, if they want to be able to transfer data between all branches and establishments of their group. If you meet the requirements for BCRs, you are likely on track to meet your GDPR requirements. Vice versa, if you meet your GDPR requirements, a lot of the preparations for BCRs will likely be done already.
This webinar will address the differences between GDPR obligations and BCR obligations to understand the necessary investment in privacy management required to apply for BCRs. Also, this webinar will speak to the advantages of BCRs as a data transfer mechanism, helping you to make the assessment if BCRs are useful for your organisation. Finally, we will discuss if and how BCRs could become a certification mechanism under Article 42 GDPR.
