HOW DOES THE CPC WORK?
The purpose of the CPC is to determine actions from a data protection perspective on the basis of four simple tests.
The CPC contains the methodology (4 steps), a short video explaining the project, a brochure and a whitepaper (all available on this website).
The CPC methodology:
Simplification of a complex subject matter without loss in terms of content. The goal of the CPC is to elucidate the topic of data protection in the cloud to 90 percent on a single page, thus providing a comprehensible and workable basis of information for 90 percent of the people having to deal with the topic.
Structuring of a plethora of questions into individual topical blocks which can then be approached step by step – from the simplest to the most complex case. Simultaneous correlation of the respectively required legal tools to be generated and evaluated in detail by jurists.
Separation of the generally applicable from the specific. This is probably the most significant aid for managing a complex trans-border endeavour. By identifying what is the same throughout all countries, the CPC allows the user to focus on the differences – if they actually apply to him. The CPC aims to provide access to relevant information affecting another country quickly and easily, without having to deal with those aspects that are the same as “at home”.
By applying the CPC method, the legality of using a particular cloud solution can be ascertained quickly and easily, and the required legal action items can be determined.
HOW DOES THE DPC WORK?
In addition to the CPC features, the DPC web offers the possibility to understand the difference between generic data protection regulations (similar in all countries) and the country-specific differences (delta reports). This helps to quickly evaluate the requirements for being legally compliant in various countries.
The DPC has a strongly structured methodology (generic report, country report, differential report) and a uniform legal wording. This was essential once the legal framework of 33 countries was added to the DPC content.
These reports can be seen for each of the 33 countries in the respective language section.
