The GDPR Compliance Relief Program to provide small businesses with software and other resources designed to simplify and reduce the cost of complying with development-specific GDPR compliance requirements.
Recital 78 of the GDPR, directs developers to give “due regard to the state of the art” when “developing, designing, (and) selecting applications” that “process personal data” to “ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services (GDPR Article 32).”
Recital 78 concludes by recommending that the principle of “security by design and by default be considered” when selecting suppliers. Software vendors have two critical reasons to get GDPR compliance right; for their own compliance and to remain competitive in markets that also need to maintain their own GDPR compliance.
