Self-Assessment and Awareness Tool


Based on a common set of criteria elaborated within the SMEDATA project the functionalities of the Self-assessment and awareness tool incorporate:

  • How to assess GDPR impacts on different economic sectors;
  • How to conduct data protection impact assessment (DPIA) in SMEs;
  • How to implement GDPR in everyday life of SMEs;
  • How to prepare SMEs staff for GDPR challenges;
  • How to raise awareness among SMEs stakeholders – staff, management, owners, subcontractors, clients;
  • How to ensure continuing learning on GDPR matters.

The Self-assessment and awareness tool provides quality criteria for awareness raising measures allowing SMEs to demonstrate reasonable confidence by further choosing additional approaches for awareness raising among their staff or clients – citizens as well as internal mechanisms for applying them.

There are two main pillars of the tool:

  • Self-Assessment
  • Awareness

Each of them consists of three mirror sections:

  • Introduction;
  • Main section;
  • Further reading.
