What is the difference between controllers and processors, and why is it important?

Whether you are a controller, joint controller, or processor, it is critical that you assess your position and duties in relation to your data processing operations so that you are aware of your obligations.

Because they decide what personal data is gathered and why, and have ultimate control over the data, controllers (including joint controllers) have additional obligations under the GDPR than processors, who must be careful to only process personal data in accordance with the applicable regulations.

At the end of this webinar you will be able to determine:

  • The status of the data controller, processor, joint-controller and third-party;
  • Your responsibilities to individuals and supervisory authorities, as well as the penalties associated with non-compliance;
  • How you can collaborate with other organizations to ensure you process personal data responsibly and respect individuals' rights.
