The easiest way for a Tech CEO to be freed from administrative burden of upcoming tech legislations

Digital assurance and safeguarding data is top of mind

As a Tech CEO you must comply with many legislations. It's not easy to stay focused on your business while drowning in bureaucratic and administrative burden due to legislative directives. To be honest it is a real pain.

We want to help you protect your digital assets in an easy way. Let us tell you more about the new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system that has been gaining traction: the Security and Privacy management system for digital assurance.

In recent years, there has been a growing concern about the security and privacy of business data. With cyber-attacks on the rise and regulations becoming more stringent, companies must take a more proactive approach to safeguarding their information.

However, managing security and privacy frameworks can be complex and time-consuming, especially when different departments within the organization are siloed [1].

Establishing and demonstrating Digital Compliance will become a top priority for any x-Tech [2] CEO for the coming three years. X-Tech could for example be FinTech, MedTech, RegTech and EdTech. In this blog we focus on x-Tech, but many other companies suffer the same legislative avalanche.

Digital Providers will face a wide variety of EU legislation:

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), former AVG
  • The NIS 2 Directive
  • The European Cyber Resilience Act
  • The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA)
  • The Critical Entities Resilience Directive (CER)
  • The Digital Services Act (DSA)
  • The Digital Markets Act (DMA)
  • The European Health Data Space (EHDS)
  • The European Chips Act
  • The European Data Governance Act (DGA
  • The Artificial Intelligence Act
  • The European ePrivacy Regulation
  • The European Cyber Defence Policy


This long list of laws and regulations just asks for one clear central solution for digital assurance. Enter the Security and Privacy management system - an all-in-one platform that allows organizations to manage all their security and privacy efforts in one place.

From HR to production to sales, this system connects all the different silos and ensures that everyone is on the same page. This not only saves time and money but also helps to avoid miscommunications and risks.

But what exactly does this system do? First and foremost, it streamlines the registration of security and privacy frameworks. Instead of having different departments duplicate efforts and registering with multiple agencies, the Security and Privacy management system allows companies to register once and automatically share that information across the organization.

Furthermore, this system provides an overarching view of the organization's security and privacy landscape and risk exposure. It identifies potential risks and helps companies to take a proactive approach to mitigating them. This is especially important today, when cyber-attacks are becoming more sophisticated and common.

The CEO’s Annual - Digital Assurance - report

As a Tech CEO, founder or boardroom member, you want to have confidence that your company is taking the necessary steps to protect its digital assets. And at the same time, meet compliance requirements. This is where the Security and Privacy management system helps you shine.

It provides an annual security and privacy report that includes an overview of the organization's digital assets, controls to mitigate risks, and recommendations for improvement. Similar to a yearly statement we know from the CFO.

At any time [3], it presents the key figures on risks expressed in Euro, control effectiveness status, and more. Such an overview and report can be used perfectly to gain trust and confidence with your stakeholders, like investors, supervisory bodies, or regulators.
