On 25 May 2018, the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force: an important date for private companies, public administrations and associations who handle personal data and are required to comply.
In line with the Grand Duchy’s determination to digitise and simplify procedures, teams from the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), the national commission for data protection (CNPD), Digital Lëtzebuerg and eProseed launched the "GDPR Compliance Support Tool" in the end of 2017, to help companies in their task of incorporating the provisions of the GDPR in their internal policies and business practices.
The tool provides users with an innovative solution for ascertaining the level of maturity of their organisations with regard to GDPR, managing their register of processing activities and collecting documents required to demonstrate their accountability.
Since the launch of the GDPR Compliance Support Tool, more than 70 companies registered every week, leading to a total number of more than 1500 companies that are using the tool at the end of May 2018. This success confirms that the tool responds to an important need, and the number of users is still increasing at the same pace since launch.
