Free online tool for the notification of personal data breaches

ENISA, in co-operation with the Office of the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of Germany (German DPA), developed a tool for the notification of personal data breaches.

Published on June 17, 2016

The purpose of the tool is to allow data controllers to complete and submit online a personal data breach notification to the competent authority (DPA/NRA).

The tool covers all types of personal data breaches and business sectors, whether public or private. Based on the input of the notification, the tool also provides to the competent authority an assessment of the severity of the breach.

The tool is free for use by any interested party.  The tool aims to facilitate the notification of personal data breaches by data controllers, which may be used by national competent authorities, in their respective countries.
