Transfer Impact Assessment

Strict rules make international data transfers a struggle for organizations, especially with personal data of EEA data subjects. Does your organization export personal data to non-EU countries? Discover how Transfer Impact Assessments (TIA) become a piece of cake!

How does our TIA module help?

Identify transfers

Recognize cross-border transfers, data importers and third countries involved. Based on that information, RESPONSUM offers advice on whether to perform a TIA. When connected to our Register of Processing Activities module, this identification will happen automatically so you’ll be notified whenever a TIA is necessary or needs to be revised.

Guided assessment

In just 6 clear, predefined steps, RESPONSUM walks you through an entire TIA. That way you can easily follow the right processremain up-to-date on which information is still required and ultimately ensure your compliance with the GDPR. The end result? A clear evaluation if the risks related to the transfer of personal data can be accepted.

Manage risks & measures

Once a TIA has been completed, the associated risks are created in our Risk Management module. Follow-up to ensure the risks are rightly mitigated and easily stay-up-to-date of their implementation.

Challenges of a TIA

The practical challenges that TIAs present are similar to those of the DPIA:

Getting accurate information

It’s not always clear which information to look for when assessing suppliers during a Transfer Impact Assessment.

Past actions documentation

Organizations are obliged to keep an accurate record of the measures and assessments they have taken. Oftentimes a document management nightmare!

Receiving information in time

Getting feedback from both the business and the external stakeholders can happen very slowly which makes the follow-up a real challenge.

Continuous reevaluation

TIAs need to be reviewed continuously as stakeholders and nations’ laws can change over time. It’s extremely challenging to keep track of those developments as one single organization.
