Principle components state the legal principles and requirements from the GDPR or other applicable regulations.

How to…

Internalize the regulation into a set of standard principals and rights:

This can be used for more than just GDPR. You can use different sources to reflect the requirements from any regulation or certification.

Map the principals to the policies and routines which realize them with the “Realized by” reference type. This will allow you to be able to say that for the GDPR principle “Security” we have this set of security policies and routines.

If you are linking the regulatory articles or paragraphs to the principals, you will also then be able to understand the impact of a change in for example “article 30″ on your associated policies, who to notify, and what the level of impact will be on the organization.”
