LGPD: More than a law, an urgent need to change organizational culture

LGPD: More than a law, an urgent need to change organizational culture


by Bruna Delgado, Legal Assistant at Pro Criança Cardiac

The General Data Protection Law (Law No. 13,709/18) came into force on 09/18/2020 and has already brought numerous needs for changes within all companies and organizations in the country. To understand the importance of this new law, Pro Criança started 2021 with talks to raise awareness among the team about the effective start of the implementation of the LGPD. We need to be aware of the extreme seriousness of dealing with third-party personal data, especially when it comes to health data, established by law as Sensitive Data.

Pro Criança Cardiac deals, almost entirely, with sensitive data. With this, we found ourselves facing a new reality: the imminent need for a change in organizational culture.

When we talk about LGPD, what we first think of, as a rule, is authorization to use images, Privacy Policy on the website, Cookies collection notice. All of these measures are relevant and must be applied, as well as the establishment of solid Corporate Governance, transparency, risk management, a consistent Compliance program, among many other control strategies.

However, if we have these impeccable documents and perfect procedures, but we do not have a change in the organizational culture of the entire team, these procedures will just be more bureaucracy for us to keep in a drawer.
