The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 24 May 2016, and compliance with it has been required as of 25 May 2018. The regulation concerns all actors and all handling of personal information in the EU. The regulation creates new obligations for both registry keepers and all those who handle personal information.
However, regulation of data protection also enables the utilisation of strategic information, and there is no reason to view it as only a burden. Data protection may become a source of competitive advantage for businesses in the future.
We help your organisation to ensure compliance with the GDPR in a business- and goal-oriented way. Our services cover all the phases required to reach compliance, from assessing the current state of data protection and privacy to identifying the measures required and providing expert and project support for their implementation phase.
We also offer verification services that your organisation can use to demonstrate to customers, interest groups and authorities that it acts in compliance with the GDPR. This is done with a reliable assurance report issued by a third party. Our verification services also help with the continuous maintenance of compliance after the period of transition.
In addition, we offer assessment services on data protection projects in progress throughout the duration of the project. The results of our assessment will give you a clear picture of the state of the project in relation to the aims set for it and the requirements of the GDPR.
We help with project planning and in different phases of development projects:
