Towards Knowledge-Based Systems for GDPRCompliance

  • 1. ADAPT Centre, Trinity College Dubln


Legal compliance is traditionally seen to be sufficiently demonstrable using legal documents that describe how various operations and activities  follow  a  given  set  of  obligations.  The  General  Data  Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforces larger responsibilities upon organisations and provides motivation for the use of technological measures that can ease its compliance. While there is no legal requirement to collaborate  on  compliance  technologies  or  to  use  a  common  mechanism  for defining knowledge, doing so has several benefits to the larger community.  Through  this  paper,  we  describe  how  open  and  shared  technologies targeted towards GDPR and its compliance can be used to create knowledge-based systems. Our approach uses semantic web technologies due to their open and flexible nature towards describing concepts and relationships.  We  present  a  model  for  such  a  knowledge-based  system along with work published to date.
