What are data types in data protection management?

The term “data type” is used in data protection management as a synonym for personal data and helps to classify it. Data types are always assigned to a specific data category and these in turn to a group of people.

What are data categories in data protection management?

Data category is a term from the GDPR and generally helps to divide individual data types into categories. According to Art. 30 GDPR, the data categories being processed must be specified for each processing activity.

What are examples of data types and data categories in data protection management?

Data categories are always assigned to a specific group of people, so that the data categories “master data”, “order data”, and “contract data” could be defined for the “customer” person group. Master data includes, for example, the customer's first and last name, the customer number as well as the email address and telephone number.

What data categories does the GDPR specify?

The GDPR itself does not provide a general categorization of data. However, under Article 9 it establishes categories of data that are subject to special protection. It refers to

racial or ethnic origin

political opinion

religious or ideological belief

Union membership

Genetic data

Biometric data

Health data

sex life and sexual orientation

What is data classification in data protection management?

Data classification is a risk management tool and is used in data protection management to identify data that is particularly worthy of protection and to evaluate the technical organizational measures. To protect the data category “health data”, a significantly higher level of security must be achieved than for less sensitive personal data such as the customer number.

How does data protection management software help manage data types and data categories?

A data protection management software like caralegal has the advantage that data types and data categories are created centrally, thus ensuring uniform use in the entire data protection documentation. In the event that new data types are added during the creation of a processing activity, they can be assigned to a data category using drag & drop. In addition, entries with the same meaning such as “customer number” and “customer ID” can be merged with one click and the change is implemented immediately in all linked documents. Data protection management software represents a significant time saver for data protection officers and data protection coordinators, especially in companies with more than 25 processing activities.
