A note from the founder, Rie Aleksandra Walle:
I am no lawyer.
I am, however, a certified privacy professional (CIPP/E) and I've spent over a thousand hours studying and working with the GDPR, including reading the law text several times (in both Norwegian and English), and worked on over a hundred GDPR projects with micro to major companies/organizations, in both the private and the public sector (especially in higher education).
My aim with the GDPR is to make privacy more available to everyone, making the complex simpler, and help you deal with the requirements in a pragmatic, practical way.
All information and work we do, is from an organizational/project/process management perspective only. I will do my best to provide useful tips on how to deal with the GDPR, but it is your sole responsibility to ensure that your business if fully compliant.
Remember, the GDPR is nothing an external consultant, or a lawyer, can do for you.
Regardless of the size of your business, you, as the business owner, still need to understand the basics of the law, and ensure you do the right things for you. Privacy and data protection are matters for the Board and top management, not a tick-box compliance exercise.
And finally; my knowledge is not based on random forum posts, blogs or Facebook discussions. I only rely on credible sources such as the actual law text, the Norwegian commentary on the legislation (written by some of Norway's best lawyers in the field), the EU website on data protection and privacy, the European Data Protection Board, courses and classes delivered by GDPR lawyers, and the information found on the websites of the national data protection authorities such as the ICO, Norway, Denmark and Germany.
PS: I know that many feel that the GDPR is overwhelming, but keep in mind that the law is here to protect you, and your personal data. ;)
