byDesign: Facilitating GDPR compliance for SMEs and promoting Data Protection by Design in ICT products and services

The advent of the GDPR has created several challenges; among others, the need of SMEs for guidance and tools for their compliance to be facilitated, and the need for appropriately educated ICT professionals to implement Data Protection by Design.

Thus, byDesign aims at:

Offering of a compliance kit for SMEs, that will provide for compliance self-assistance along with a set of context-aware templates of essential documents

Development of a training programme about Data Protection by Design, targeting developers and other stakeholders of the ICT products and services creation chain

Maximisation of byDesign impact, through awareness raising, dissemination, networking and sustainability of project results.

The byDesign project has received funding from the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC) under grant agreement No. 101005833 and coordinated by the Hellenic Data Protection Authority.

Project start date: November 1, 2020
