  • GDPR - Breaking of Confidentiality

    1. I have been in dispute with a care company over an invoice dating from late 2018. Basically the company was trying to charge my mother, who suffers from *** for appointments where they didn't turn up or left early to get to other appointments. I asked for some information under the "Freedom of Information Act 2000" several months back which the care company did not supply. Recently a Debt Recovery company contacted me reference the unpaid invoice. We have been in communication for a several weeks now. This week I received an email from the Debt Recovery company attached to the email was some of the information that I had requested from the care company. The attachments were a copy of my mothers contract with the care company, a copy of her Individual Care and Support Agreement and a copy of my Power of Attorney for my mothers finances.

    Are the care company in breach of GDPR for sharing this information with a third party i.e. the Debt Recovery company?

    2. What can I do about this breach of confidentiality?

    3. Can I take the Care Company to court over this matter? As I am really not happy with them over this!

He explains that there are countries identified as having an adequate level of data protection (i.e the EU member states) and then explains that certain countries were not yet recognized have adequate protection such as the United States was not recognized as having an adequate level of data protection. Is this list of countries still up to date? Are entities in these countries still required to form binding corporate rules?

  • Risk assessment for GDPR

    Hi Team,

    I do have a question as part of our toolkit plan.

    We have finished the risk assessment and treatment plan based on the 27001 approaches, which is asset-based.

    In the webinar "How to integrate GDPR with ISO 27001" it was mentioned that recommended is combined "Risk Assessment" for 27001 and GDPR.

    My question is in case you have template methodology that combines both approaches?
    How do we need to augment current 27001 methodologies & template to be GDPR compliant?
    Our current risk register includes assets of type "Processes/Services", which map with processing activities.

    To confirm I am not speaking about DPIA, which is unique to GDPR.

    Is there anything specific in GDPR that would require to extend methodology that is included in your 27001 templates?
