Small businesses may struggle to achieve compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the EU.

Fear no more, help is at hand with EC project SMOOTH, which supports micro enterprises and small businesses across Europe being GDPR compliant and improves their data management. 

The Market Pilot is a chance for small businesses across Europe to quickly test if their data storage and management is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union. Participants will not only receive a free assessment of their data processing but also tailored suggestions on what they can improve.

The new pilot builds upon the lessons learned from its predecessors, run by SMOOTH in 2019 and 2020. The process is optimised for the needs of enterprises which have to use their time in the most productive way, with results in just a few clicks.

Being compliant with GDPR is not only a legal requirement but it can also greatly benefit businesses:

  • a chance to cut costs of storing data, legacy applications and inventory software both in silos and inconsistent formats.
  • alleviation of data maintenance expenses, whose funding can be redirected to innovation resources and infrastructures management.
  • GDPR-aligned security will reinforce brand reputation, by showing customers a reliable data governance system.
