User data and privacy are of great importance and keeping this in mind, the European Union implemented GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Organisations who collect and make use of user data need to run tighter ships ever since the regulation was passed or else, they could face hefty fines. However, it can be tough for entire businesses to pivot and change their entire functioning to get in line with GDPR.
In order to help such companies, there are numerous startups that offer a range of services that can help organisations comply with the new data laws. Here are five such startups in Europe that help companies change how they operate and handle data. These European startups are booming ever since the GDPR legislation was implemented.
Hut Six (Newport, United Kingdom)
Hut Six is a platform that aims to protect an organisation from the most prevalent cause of security breaches, which it believes is the human factor. The company’s campaign is adapted to the GDPR legislation and it has developed a specific GDPR module that introduces a company’s staff to the changes and explains its impact on an organisation. Alongside informing the employees of their new privacy rights, the regulation stipulates the need for staff training in information security and the processing of personal data.
