The main goal of the DEFeND project is to deliver an innovative data privacy governance platform, which facilitates scoping and processing of data and data breach management and supports organisations towards GDPR compliance. The DEFeND platform enables building and analysing models following a Privacy-by-Design approach spanning over two levels, the Planning Level and the Operational Level, and across three management areas: Data Scope, Data Process and Data Breach. The consortium leveraged existing software, tools and methodologies towards the implementation of the platform software components. The DEFeND platform has been tested in an operational environment (TRL 7), involving partners from four different areas: healthcare, banks, energy and local public administration.
