It is essential to insure your Cloud Backup & Storage Solutions are GDPR compliant. Lets start with four main processes to outline & map your journey to identify the gaps & challenges ahead of you.

Discover Identify all personal data your company has and where it resides.

What is Personal Data :

Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Manage Establish data governance policies to proactively manage the usage & access to all data.

As you have completed the initial setup for Data Management to cover the below:

  • Obtain consent from data subjects to process their data
  • Provide data subjects with privacy notices that describe how their data is used
  • Ability to comply to data subject request to discontinue processing forms of personal data
  • Established an easy accessible way for data subjects to communicate with the organization on privacy matters

  • To create and maintain a risk management program for data privacy.
  • Invest in technologies to encrypt the identified personal data.
  • Study if your organization is proactively taking measures to avoid breaches, and test the current security measures.


What is Data Governance?

Data governance (DG), the management of data availability, usability, integrity and security within an enterprise. A sound data governance program should cover the enterprise’s ability to set defined procedures and plans to enforce such procedures.


Does your organization have Data Governance for your cloud Backup Solution?

Protect Establish security policies to identify, prevent, detect, and take actions towards possible security threats
  • Data should be protected against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration and disclosure.
  • Must take proactive measures to enhance data security.
  • Must design the internal data processing procedure and continue assess the security.


  • Is the organization planning how to develop its technology, products, processes and organizational structure with data protection and privacy as key components, and is it aware of the gaps for doing so?
  • Is the organization aware of technologies to encrypt personal data and has it encrypted some personal data such as government identification numbers, birthdates, or banking numbers?
  • Does the organization have an on going effort to identify needed people, process and technology controls to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of personal data?

  • Does the organization perform testing of its security measures, whether through technical means, social engineering, or tabletop exercises?
Report Ability to carry out effective investigations in a time efficient manner. Take action on data requests, report data breaches, and keep required documentation
  • Does the organization maintain records of processing activities with some additional information regarding the purpose or scope of the activities?
  • Does the organization have documentation of ongoing personal data transfers into and out of EU?
  • Does the organization maintain an inventory of processes that transmit personal data to third-party service provider?
  • Can the organization determine risks associated with personal data processing?
  • eDiscovery enables the Data controller to run investigations for data breaches more efficiently.

The selection of Cloud Backup Service provider is critical to your compliancy journey. If your cloud suppliers are not compliant with the GDPR, then neither are you.
