Accountability is the new paradigm and runs like a backbone through the GDPR –regulation. The GDPR impacts the entire organization and is thus not an legal-only project for compliancy. The involvement from all departments concerned is essential for obtaining a clear understanding of the “as is” of the processing of personal data within on organization. Presentation and explanation of our approach.

In this session we will look back briefly on the results and action points of our SecaaS study in 2016.
