GDPR defines a third party data processor as any company that processes personal data on behalf of a controller. This company could be cloud services, mailing houses, web hosts, or any other business. That handles personal data in connection with the goods or services they offer. Or for projects their client is involved in.
Data processors are the workers that do the job of processing data, under the direction of a data controller. The data controller is responsible for all actions that the processors take. Therefore processors must be identified, the data they process and store must be understood, and the security of that data must be known.
By reviewing the GDPR awareness of all third party companies that your business works with, you will be able to see if they are compliant with the privacy regulations. You should be able to review their policies and practices to determine their awareness of the GDPR.
