One of the key changes to be brought into the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is that of “Privacy by Design” along with “Privacy by Default”. In essence, companies will now be obliged to take into account data privacy during design stages of all projects along with the lifecycle of the relevant data process.
Currently, the EU rules regarding Data Protection do not have this concept and no EU law ensures that these measures have to be taken into account. As such, the only obligation is that the data controller has to take appropriate measures in order to protect personal data from unlawful processing.
What does Privacy by Design mean?
The term “Privacy by Design” means nothing more than “data protection through technology design.” Behind this is the thought that data protection in data processing procedures is best adhered to when it is already integrated in the technology when created. Nevertheless, there is still uncertainty about what “Privacy by Design” means, and how one can implement it. This is due, on the one hand, to incomplete implementation of the Directive in some Member States and, on the other hand, that the principle “Privacy by Design” which is in the General Data Protection Regulation, that the current approach in the data protection guidelines, which requires persons responsible already to include definitions of the means for processing TOMs at the time that they are defined in order to fulfill the basics and requirements of “Privacy by Design”.
