More than ever, our public and para-public institutions, government-owned companies and European institutions face the effects of unprecedented change, new challenges and complex issues. The modernization of the public sphere remains a fundamental challenge.

Topics such as the optimal use and the sustainability of public funds, eroding but also new revenue sources, nation branding, digitalisation, the environmental but also demographic changes, the continuous improvement of the performance and quality of services to citizens as well as the need for greater transparency and administrative simplification but also flexibility to adapt to new disruptive technologies and services are ever more relevant.

    • Data Privacy: We help institutions and administrations to prepare for and implement the new upcoming “General data protection regulation”. (Replacing the current law of 2002). As institutions and administrations are typically processing large amounts of personal data we help to identify gaps, on conducting (mandatory) PIA (Privacy Impact Assessments) or help to set up the DPO (Data Privacy Officer). Furthermore, we assist to set up, submit, follow up or assess requests for processing of personal data towards the regulator.

Risk Management plays a crucial role to move towards this common target.
