ICT Legal Consulting supervised the development of the GDPR Temperature Tool, created as part of the European Commission-funded H2020 project Cyberwatching.eu’s information and awareness initiative. The GDPR Temperature tool can be used as a preliminary step for SMEs to facilitate an understanding of where their organization stands with respect to the GDPR and risk exposure to sanctions.

ICTLC Founding Partner Paolo Balboni, lead creator of the tool, explains that “Assessing risk is an essential process that all companies need to take action on. Risks vary in likelihood and severity for rights and freedoms of natural persons posed by the relevant processing activities. It’s vital for companies to keep on top of this and design data processing activities that are legally and ethically respectful of individuals.”
