A crosswalk in data privacy refers to the process of mapping and aligning different data privacy laws, regulations, and standards to ensure that personal information is being handled consistently and in compliance with relevant laws and regulations. Crosswalks (or roadmaps) help to determine where legal requirements overlap and/or differ.
PrivCom’s crosswalk maps and aligns Bermuda and the European Union’s data privacy regulations, the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), respectively.
Our crosswalk helps Bermuda’s organisations handling personal information to identify the key obligations and requirements under PIPA and GDPR, as well as to map these requirements and link them to their own data privacy policies, programmes, and practices.
By creating a crosswalk, organisations can ensure that they are complying with all relevant data protection laws, regulations, and standards and can identify any gaps or areas for improvement in their data privacy policies, programmes, and practices. This helps to protect the privacy of individuals and to minimise the risk of legal and financial consequences for the organization.
