Ontology based ecosystem for trustworthy Records of Processing Activities (ROPAs).





Additional Info

The creation of ROPAs is generally perceived as a cumbersome administrative hurdle. As a consequence, personnel in public administration elude this task, which results in a situation where there are public administrations that have this obligation still within their pending tasks. Indeed, this means that they do not comply with the GDPR. Moreover, when ROPAs are available, they are isolated pieces of information, which obstructs knowledge extraction processes based on comparisons and reasoning.

Our solution has two main components. The first one is a domain ontology, a ROPA ontology that collects the knowledge about the information ROPAs should contain. The second component is the technical framework that will support the organization of a community that shares distributed, reliable, connected ROPAs, the ontological ROPAs, on top of which intelligent processes can be applied.

OntoROPA will support a community that shares interest in ROPAs, and the building of tools that use common vocabularies for these pieces of information. There is no solution based on shared standard vocabularies for ROPAs. No consensus for ROPAs has been achieved until now. Moreover, there are very few tools that assist the creation of ROPAs, and to our knowledge no tool able to provide linking with related information or automatic reasoning on ROPAs.

Enduser Relevance

OntoROPA provides ROPAs controllers and data protection supervisors tools and infrastructure to create high quality ROPAs, to share ROPAs with others, to compare ROPAs and to assess ROPAs.
