Simplifying compliance for
businesses and organisations

About Us

GDPR365 was started by lifelong software entrepreneurs who have built successful cloud-based businesses involving large volumes of sensitive personal data, and are therefore well-versed in the risks involved with managing data privacy.

Our goal with GDPR365 is to help businesses and organisations understand data protection, and simplify the process and maintenance of GDPR compliance.
