Privacy Compliance Assessment (PCA)

A Privacy Compliance Assessment provides an overview of your organization's compliance with the protection of personal data processed by your organization, based on the legislation that applies to you. This assessment also makes it possible to evaluate the practices surrounding personal data protection, assess your organization’s maturity level, and identify and prioritize the gaps that need to be corrected. At the end of this assessment, you will have a concrete and personalized action plan that meets your specific and urgent needs. A PCA allows you to meet the legal obligations imposed on your organization, resulting in the reduction of the risks of sanctions and reputational damage.

Outsourced Data Protection Officer (DPOaaS)

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) assists your organization in designing, establishing and maintaining compliance with applicable privacy and data protection regulations. A DPO acts as the security and compliance lead required by some legislations, such as the RGPD, the LGPD and An Act to modernize legislative provisions as regards the protection of personal information in Quebec. While bound by confidentiality on the performance of their duties, the DPO is responsible for overseeing your organization's data protection strategy and its implementation, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and best practices. Hitachi Security Systems has an experienced team ready to act as your outsourced DPO and operationalize best practices for data protection in your organization.

Privacy and data protection policies and procedures

Mapping, inventory and register of processing activities

Several regulations have introduced the obligation to have a register of processing activities. The control authorities may request the communication of such a document. In this context, with the realization of a mapping and an inventory of the uses of personal data within your organization, you will be able to establish your register and avoid administrative fines or penal sanctions. Building a registry is an ongoing process that takes time, thoroughness, and a proven methodology. Hitachi Security Systems has all the necessary tools to assist you in meeting this obligation.

Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA)

PIAs or Data Protection Impact Assessments are assessments of a specific processing project or activity that may pose a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects. This assessment examines all processes and tools that affect the data collected and identifies the risks of non-compliance and security of this practice. Thanks to this assessment - mandatory in some situations, such as interprovincial transfers outside Quebec - you will have a concrete risk management strategy.

Support for the Internal Data Protection Officer

If your organization chooses to appoint an in-house Data Protection Officer*, Hitachi Security Systems' team of experienced analysts is ready to answer any questions the DPO or equivalent may have while performing their duties within your organization.

Employee training on privacy and data protection

You can take advantage of Hitachi Security Systems' expertise to provide the proper training to educate your employees, managers and executives about data privacy issues.

Who needs a Data Protection or Chief Privacy Officer?

Several laws require the appointment of a DPO/CPO, for example,

Under section 4.1 of PIPEDA "Accountability Principle", organizations must designate a representative to oversee the organization's compliance with the ten privacy principles (i.e. a Privacy Officer).

The GDPR provides for three specific instances where the appointment of a DPO is mandatory:

The processing is carried out by a public authority or body, except for courts acting in their judicial capacity,
The core activities of the organization consist of processing which require regular and systematic monitoring of individuals on a large scale,
The core activities of the organization consist of processing on a large scale of sensitive data or personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences.

The tasks of the DPO/CPO can be performed internally by a full-time or part-time employee, or externally by a service provider (DPOaaS/CPOaaS).
