Browsers tools FedStats | Supporting a Community of Practice Engaged in Federal Statistics Running a GDPR project –Practical step by step guide Step 1 -Records of Processing Activities Start by documenting your Records of Processing activities, they are a key deliverable of GDPR and must be provided to the supervisory authority on request, but they also act as a perfect basis for your planning. Use the purpose of processing as the basis for the template and everything will grow organically from there. Make sure you don’t have too many purposes of processing, I recommend trying to keep it to under 30 but ideally under 15. If you are sending templates to business people to complete, then make the templates in advance and use drop downs for most elements . It requires some upfront work but it is beneficial in many ways. The business will not feel overwhelmed and they will complete it more easilyYou will have consistency in responseIt requires fewer hours/days analysis and you will be able to summarise it more easily No doubt you will have to be willing to allow the template to develop, but this approach works really well.
