Our experienced data protection officers analyze and assess data protection at your business. They work with you to develop suitable measures that optimize your corporate data protection.

Four steps are involved in this process.

1. Assessment by means of a data protection check-up

We perform a check-up to assess the current condition of data protection at your business. We analyze the current state of your corporate data protection, efficiently identify potential vulnerabilities and non-compliances, and provide you with documented recommendations to close any gaps. This check-up is performed based on current requirements, such as the EU GDPR.
