An Accountability Approach to GDPR Compliance

Using Nymity's Free GDPR Compliance Toolkit


The Accountability principle runs through the core of the GDPR. Article 24 requires that organisations implement 'appropriate technical and organisational measures' to be able to 'demonstrate' their compliance with the Regulation. Nymity's research has identified 39 Articles (out of the 99 Articles in the GDPR) that require evidence to demonstrate compliance and has mapped these Articles to the Nymity Privacy Management Accountability Framework™ (a menu of appropriate technical and organisational measures).

Attend this workshop to learn how GDPR accountability and compliance can be achieved through a structured approach to privacy management and learn how Nymity’s free GDPR Compliance Toolkit will equip you with the resources necessary to understand, assess, and develop a plan to GDPR compliance.

The Free GDPR Compliance Toolkit that you will receive will include:

GDPR Accountability Handbook
