Fraud Investigation
GDPR recognises the importance of fraud prevention within two of its recitals:

  • Recital 47: “The processing of personal data strictly necessary for the purposes of preventing fraud also constitutes a legitimate interest of the data controller concerned…”
  • Recital 71: “decision-making based on … profiling should be allowed where expressly authorised by … law … including for fraud or tax evasion monitoring and prevention purposes”

  • There is also an important exemption to the data subjects’ right to erasure of their personal data when “for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.”
