Personal data breach notification tool

Published under 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.

In particular, the purpose of the tool is to provide for the online completion and submission of a personal data breach notification by the data controller to the competent authority (DPA/NRA). It covers all types of personal data breaches and all types of business sectors, 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 assessment is based on the relevant Personal Data Breach Severity Assessment Methodology developed by ENISA in co-operation with the DPAs of Greece and Germany.

The tool is free for use by any interested party, in particular national competent authorities who would like to facilitate the notification of personal data breaches by data controllers in their countries.

If you would like to test the use of the tool and/or get a copy of the software, please send an email to the following address: isdp at enisa dot europa dot eu. Please note that all received requests are addressed on regular intervals.
