The TAPA Standards require certain records to be made and stored to help provide deterrents and maintain a robust audit trail should a security incident require further investigation. What is the best approach to avoiding claims that the TAPA Standards conflict with the EU GDPR?

All companies in the EU need to assess their practices and implement their own GDPR policies to collect, use, protect and delete personal data. When seeking conformance to TAPA Standards, company policy on personal data should be measured against the relevant TAPA requirement. In most cases, implementing processes for keeping the records that TAPA requires in a simple format, making it clear how that data can and cannot be used and, when no longer needed, how it will be destroyed, will be sufficient.
