Protect personal data by dialing in your DPA.
A data processing agreement (DPA) is a major part of protecting customer data. Learn what these agreements do and how you can create one for your business.
Introduction to data protection.
No matter the business type or service provider, one of the most valuable assets an organization has is user data. This data enables better service, marketing, and structure for businesses that are developing forward-thinking strategies.
Because of this, if you or your organization handles user data, it’s vital to protect it from a data breach. One of the components of securing user data is a legally binding agreement that explicitly states the controller’s (the person or entity in charge of data) instructions, rights, and obligations about the protection of that personal data and how you share it with third parties. This is known as a data processing agreement, or DPA.
