GDPR Locks From S&G

Posted by   Admin Admin

G.D.P.R. Compliance For Paper Files

Under the GDPR, data controllers must implement a system to protect physical data, such as paper files, against,

1. Accidental or unlawful destruction

2. Accidental loss

3. Unauthorised disclosure or access

The system must also provide a record of when data is accessed and by whom and must be demonstrably restrictive and hierarchical.

So how can this be achieved while avoiding the dangers associated with tracking physical keys and keeping paper logs which are a GDPR issue in themselves?

  • When fitted to a European certified fire and burglary resistant safe, cabinet or filing cabinet a Sargent & Greenleaf certified USB audit lock tracks access to the unit by identity, date, time and code automatically.
  • Audit logs can be easily downloaded and viewed by the data controller but will automatically erase after 1000 entries. Completely compliant with the limited data retention aspect of the GDPR.
  • S&G Audit trails are in themselves GDPR compliant as users are identified by audit ID number only, so only the data controller that authorised the access can identify the specific user.

So next time you hear someone say there's no such thing as a European certified solution for paper files under the GDPR, think again!
