Data Protection Day - 28 January

28th of January is Data Protection Day. On this day, we like to remind you of the importance of privacy in your business. 

The term privacy goes back to the 19th century when it was defined as the right to be left alone. Today we translate it more to the protection of personal data. 

This is something you, as a business, may also have to deal with. If you have business-to-consumer (B2C) transactions, you process the personal data of citizens ("consumers"). Here it is important that you take both technical and organizational measures to ensure this privacy. This is laid down in the Privacy Act (GDPR) which sets out rules for "rights for data subject" on the one hand and "obligations for the controller and processor" on the other.

Are you GDPR compliant?

Implementation of the GDPR is an organization-specific process. A focused approach is therefore essential. You can do this by mapping the current situation of your organization with respect to the GDPR by means of our GDPR Compliance Scan. Based on concrete findings and recommendations, you can use the scan as a starting point for (improving) the implementation of GDPR within your organization.
