GDPR Compliance Cloud Platform for Micro Enterprises

Descrizione del progetto

Emancipare le microimprese per la conformità al GDPR

In un mondo guidato dai dati, quando si tratta di adottare il regolamento generale sulla protezione dei dati (GDPR), le piccole imprese si trovano di fronte a non poche difficoltà. Le microimprese, che rappresentano il 93 % delle imprese europee, non avendo le competenze e le risorse necessarie rischiano di non rispettare il GDPR. Il progetto SMOOTH, finanziato dall’UE, mira a emanciparle. In particolare, creerà consapevolezza tra le microimprese sull’importanza della conformità al GDPR. In collaborazione con le autorità per la protezione dei dati e le associazioni di imprese dell’UE, SMOOTH fornirà un manuale interattivo attraverso un sito web e un’applicazione mobile di facile utilizzo, adattati specificamente alle esigenze di queste imprese. Il progetto assisterà inoltre le microimprese nell’adozione e nella conformità al GDPR.

Obiettivo

According to the last official available 2015 data, almost 93% of all enterprises in Europe in the non-financial business sector have less than 10 employees. These micro enterprises (MEnts) are responsible for 30% and 21% of the overall employment and value added in the EU, respectively. However, when it refers to the imminent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)’s application, MEnts are the most vulnerable due to their lack of expertise and resources to invest in their adoption. It is urgent to develop solutions that assist MEnts in smoothly adopting the GDPR, safeguarding the interests of the EU citizens on data privacy and security, avoiding the negative socioeconomic consequences entailed to breaches for MEnts, and, by extension, benefitting the European society. SMOOTH project addresses this challenge from two complementary focuses:
1) Creating awareness on the importance of being compliant with the GDPR, as many MEnts ignore their obligations in this respect, involving as partners Data Protection Authorities and associations representing EU MEnts. For the same purpose, SMOOTH will deliver a practical GDPR interactive handbook (website and mobile app) tailored specifically to MEnts.
2) Assisting MEnts to effectively adopt and comply with the GDPR. The SMOOTH cloud platform will use machine learning, text and data mining, and advance online auditing methods to automatically create a bespoke GDPR compliance report for the most critical aspects to MEnts. Likewise, SMOOTH will provide useful materials for solving those identified aspects of the GDPR that are not properly covered.
All this will positively contribute to citizens rights, while avoiding potential fines for the MEnts that may account for as much as 4% of the annual income, according to the GDPR. SMOOTH is born from technology partners and data protection authorities and will be designed and validated by actual MEnts with the aim of becoming the reference tool platform for them to adopt the GDPR.
