Records of Processing Activities

Pragmatic and tailored approach to GDPR compliance

Records of Processing Activities (ROPAs)

As seen with the mandatory requirement to conduct DPIAs, the GDPR is a heavily risk-based law.  However, many organisations are missing one of the best tools for identifying data risk in their processing, i.e., a record of processing activities (or ROPA), despite, currently, it being a statutory requirement for most organisations under Article 30.  In URM’s opinion a ROPA should be front and centre of any controller’s DP compliance effort.  URM has helped a number of organisations develop their ROPAs and once developed can help you identify not just the risky processing, but also the mitigating steps that can be taken to control those risks.  It’s worth remembering that the ROPA will be one of the first compliance documents requested by the regulator in the event of a data breach.
