Redactus - Data Protection Compliance for your CCTV Systems

April, 2018

What is GDPR and how does it affect my CCTV system?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply throughout the European Union from May 25th, and therefore will affect all businesses who operate CCTV systems.

The new regulations will drastically change the way businesses need to approach how they capture, store, transfer and handle personal data from CCTV systems. It is important for businesses of all sizes to understand their regulatory requirements and what actions are needed to be compliant.

The penalties facing businesses for non-compliance are fines of up to €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover (Whichever is greater!). The regulations apply to all businesses worldwide that process personal data of EU citizens.

Path to Compliance for your CCTV systems

In general there are 6 administrative steps your business can take to make sure you are CCTV compliant which are:

  1. Reasons for CCTV system

  2. Informing people of its presence and use

  3. Retention policies regards recorded footage and images

  4. Permissions

  5. Assisting Gardai and other law agencies regarding the access of personal data

  6. Verification of use
