A data lake is an infrastructure that permits different data sets from within a group to be combined and analysed together.
To analyse a data lake under GDPR, it is helpful to think of a data lake in two phases, which we analyse in our user guide.
The infrastructure phase
Here, the guide covers:
- Identify the entity that is hosting the data lake.
- Implement an intragroup data processing agreement.
- Check data localisation rules.
- Data protection impact assessment.
- Data lake governance committee.
The applications phase
Specifically, we look at:
- Data lake service provider becomes data controller.
- Instructions from each affiliate as (original) data controller.
- Mapping value transfers from data lake applications.
- Data lakes and applicable law.
- Additional purposes that are “compatible”.
- Data protection impact assessments.
