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 is a regulation which most companies have to comply with. The Data Protection Authority will verify your compliance by checking whether 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 system such as for quality (ISO9000) or information security (ISO27001), except that it applies to the rights and freedoms of citizens.

What are the benefits of a well-designed Data Protection Management Program?
  • Improve the quality of your governance processes
  • Enable your organization to demonstrate accountability and transparency
  • Boost your resilience to unexpected negative events
  • Ease the adoption of newly and continuously evolving standards and regulations
  • Enable your transformation goals towards digitization
  • Reinforce your cyber-security defence at all layers

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