As we have come to the end of our comprehensive 13-part blog series examining the intricacies of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and its application to the area of video surveillance, we would like to thank everyone for joining us on this journey. Throughout this series, our team has devoted significant effort to provide informative and actionable insights on the importance of privacy and data security, and how our company is committed to operating in compliance with the GDPR regulations.

Over the course of the series, we have also highlighted the importance of GDPR compliance for all businesses that process personal data, especially those utilizing video surveillance systems. Data controllers must pay close attention to the GDPR’s obligations relating to the identification, management, and mitigation of risks if they are using video surveillance systems and security cameras that fall under its purview. Although video surveillance systems are not specifically mentioned in the GDPR, the GDPR’s general data protection rules nonetheless apply to them. Large-scale video surveillance in public spaces is categorized by European Data Protection Agencies (DPA) as a “high-risk processing operation.” As a result, data controllers using video surveillance within the territorial scope of the GDPR will need to carry out a number of very particular duties, such as completing risk analyses, making sure privacy by design is included into their systems, and creating the necessary privacy notices.

To fully comply with GDPR requirements for video surveillance systems, it may be essential to work with a reliable partner who is familiar with both video surveillance and privacy and data protection concerns. Data controllers seeking to outsource their data processing activities to a data processor must collaborate with a company that provides solutions to enable them to fully comply with GDPR regulations.

At Intenseye, we firmly believe that it is possible to achieve a harmonious balance between data processing and privacy, and we have witnessed the effects of this approach firsthand by implementing a wide range of policies and practices to ensure that we are in compliance with GDPR regulations.

We are deeply proud of the work that we do, and we are of the opinion that our dedication to privacy and data security sets us apart from other companies in our field. Continuously seeking improvement and innovation, we are thrilled by the prospects of the future, which hold enormous potential for responsible data processing.
