GDPR Compliance Solutions

Most of the compliance requirements under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) focus on organizational measures concerning processes, policies, and documentation. Unlike standards such as PCI DSS or ISO-27001, GDPR does not provide specific, detailed security controls for security professionals to follow. We can assist you with navigating these requirements.
