Comply with the GDPR by following our proven approach

The GDPR: an opportunity to review your approach to data protection and compliance management   

Our response to the GDPR is quite simple: it’s a regulation which most companies have to comply with. The Data Protection Authority will verify your compliance by checking wether your organization has implemented the organizational and technical measures required in order to ensure that personal data is protected. In other words, you need a certifiable management system. This is very similar to any other existing management systems such as for quality (ISO9000) or information security (ISO27001), except that it applies to the right and freedom of citizens.  

A well-designed Data Protection Management Program will consequently:

  • help you to improve the quality of your governance processes
  • boost your resilience to unexpected negative events.
  • ease the adoption of newly and continuously evolving standards and regulations
  • enable your transformation goals towards digitalization

This will be achieved by implementing Privacy by Design into your processes.

Where are you in your GDPR journey?

 

  1. You need to evaluate your compliance situation
  2. You need to achieve the compliance requirements
  3. You need to consolidate your daily operations to stay compliant

Check below our suggested calls to action and our supporting services.

Our proven and structured approach to the GDPR is four‑fold
