Design and Implement a Data Protection Management System 

Our proven, structured methodology to the GDPR is four fold



The biggest challenge to achieving GDPR compliance resides in your ability to coordinate various activities. This requires a broad spectrum of different skill sets, each evolving at a different pace. Integrated into proper governance of data privacy, our GDPR compliance methodology will enhance your organization and enable it to demonstrate accountability and transparency.


The legal dimension covers all legal obligations such as notification to data subject, setting up the legal ground for processing and the data processing register, as well as such contractual changes as required with suppliers, customers and partners.

Data governance covers all aspects related to data architecture, flows and governance, including the breach management process.

Information security covers all activities pertaining to the proper management and governance of information security risks as well as awareness programmes.

The Technology part is dedicated to helping IT teams identify and implement appropriate security and privacy measures so as to support the overall compliance programme. This domain is closely tied to the privacy by design concept. 

What are the benefits of such an implementation method?

  • Ensure that you cover all aspects of the GDPR within your organization, including IT, Legal and Business
  • Enable a clear identification of all stakeholders, and the effort required by all parties
  • Facilitate the definition of roles and responsibilities during and after implementation
  • Entail adapted awareness for the implementation team
  • Provide a tailored and independent roadmap, and clear cost control
  • Prioritize activities and quick wins
  • Provide easy metrics


A methodology empowered with governance and project management skills

We are convinced that a proper implementation of such a project cannot be successful without proper project management and governance with our customers. Our team accordingly includes project managers with appropriate skills and competences (Prince2 and Agile mainly) who can proceed with our clients’ governance and project management processes and tools, or use the Approach project management tools and processes.

Based on your compliance journey, Approach can support your organization from assessment to daily operations.
