Our Data Minimization Service provides you with deletion strategies and enforcement plans for data in all media types in compliance with international regulations. This service enables you to document your data minimization logic, demonstrate diligence, and reduce e-discovery and data breach risks.
WHY DO I NEED IT?
There is a legal and regulatory obligation to establish and enforce a defensible data retention and deletion program. The GDPR specifically outlines a requirement to limit the use of data to the purpose for which it was collected, and to routinely dispose of all eligible data. Penalties for non-compliance are severe.
Article 5 | Principles for the Processing of Personal Data:
Personal data must be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date. Personal data that are inaccurate must be either erased or rectified without delay.
Personal data must be kept in a form that permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed.
Per Article 5, the controller is responsible for and must be able to demonstrate compliance with these and other requirements.
