All companies rely on or engage the services of third-party vendors in the manufacture their products or delivery of their services. This can range from payroll providers to supply chain vendors. Article 28 of the GDPR requires you to place your downstream vendors under a compliant contract designed to protect personal data that you control, and they process on your behalf. You are also under an obligation to make sufficient checks to ensure the vendor can meet their obligations under the contract. Managing personal data has inherent risks when it leaves your control and managing this risk has become a major challenge. It is therefore critical to demonstrate that you have analysed your vendor’s ability to protect the personal data that you as a business control.
