ICO: Accountability framework self-assessment

Hi All,

If you have ever been through a GDPRLocal training course you will [hopefully] remember that talking about Accountability is a topic that is discussed about. Accountability is one of the key principles in data protection law – it makes you responsible for complying with the legislation and says that you must be able to demonstrate your compliance. 

This sounds all ad but the ico publish a very useful Accountability Assessment Tool to help any organisation, whether small or large, understand and comply with their obligations.

The framework is divided into 10 categories and contains expectations and examples of how your organisation can demonstrate accountability. The key is that the measures you put in place must be appropriate, risk-based and proportionate.  You must be able to demonstrate real commitment and action.

The assessment will take you around 50 minutes and is a very useful exercise to help ensure you comply. After the assessment if you decide you need help with any aspect of data protection please feel free to contact us, we are always happy to help.

You can start the assessment here:
