What is the difference between a controller and a processor?

The data controller determines the purpose for which data is being collected, stored and used and the manner and means by which it is being processed.  

‘Controller’ can refer to a natural person, a legal person, authority, agency or other body.
The data processor is the person or persons acting on behalf of the controller, whether internal to a company or accessing and using data as an outsourced service.  

With GDPR the data processor has more responsibility than under the previous directive in terms of security, risks and overall handling of data.

Organisations can be both the controller or processor but usually the processor is a separate entity.

The default view of the GDPR checklist is 60% to provide an easy view of the entire excel sheet, although this can easily be altered using the methods above.

How will the complete checklist save me time and money?
Beginning the GDPR process can feel overwhelming and it would be easy to waste time and valuable resources working out exactly what you need to do and how you are to go about doing it.
Depending on your company’s current situation and existing arrangements, without the GDPR Checklist you could potentially be starting the whole process from scratch with little in the way of knowledge on how to approach it and no personnel qualified to undertake the task.  

With our product you can basically get started on the project immediately and avoid wasting valuable resources or having the expense of outsourcing the work to expensive compliance professionals.
