Challenges of Transfer Impact Assessments (TIA)

The practical challenges that TIAs present are similar to those of the Data Protection Impact Assessment:

Getting accurate information

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

Receiving the 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.

Documentation of previous actions

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

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.

So how does the RESPONSUM 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 measures

Once a TIA has been completed, additional supplementary measures might be necessary. Follow-up on those activities to ensure the risks are rightly mitigated and easily stay-up-to-date of their implementation.
