The need to adapt to the rapid advances in ICT have raised for organisations (pushing them towards e-services and increase their efficiency), public authorities (stimulating new services to citizens and reducing complexity) and individuals (enabling them to communicate personal information more efficiently). It is important that DEFeND provides a solution that not only supports compliance of the relevant GDPR articles, but also fulfils special characteristics of needs that organisations might have. That way DEFeND goes beyond current products that offer general solutions and need special expertise and effort in order to cover the requirements of the organizations (by adapting the general solutions to the special needs of the organizations).
