Our services

Privacy & GDPR

Total solutions for any organisation.

The GDPR is one of the biggest expansions in the field of privacy worldwide. This legislation protects all personal data of anyone who sets foot in Europe in an unprecedented way. Having trouble navigating the laundry list of new obligations? At Apogado, we have all the answers.

How do we do this? We apply our own developed frameworks that have emerged from our years of experience and expertise. Our standard approach consists of three phases:

  • Audit – A brief evaluation of your current situation that leads to a concrete roadmap.
  • Implementation – Drafting and rolling out all necessary measures, documents, procedures, and more to comply with the GDPR.
  • Governance – Systematic evaluation of the established measures and follow-up of daily privacy aspects.

Throughout all these phases, we always consider the correct balance between legal, business, and IT aspects. Big or small, public or private, our consultants have experience and knowledge in all these domains and ensure that you comply with the strict requirements of all privacy legislations, avoid hefty fines, and create added value for your business!

Information security

We put your security first.

In this digital world, it is extremely important to ensure the safety of your data and the data of all your stakeholders. For customers, it is essential to know that their data is in good hands with you.

How do we help you? We provide your organization with the necessary guidance in a comprehensive approach to information security. Based on well-known standards such as ISO27001/2 and qualitative research methods, we determine where your organization is most at risk. Our security experts develop a practical roadmap to address and monitor all these risks. Together with you, we roll out your entire information security policy from A (access controls) to Z (zero-day).

Have you already taken the first steps? We enhance the maturity of your ISMS (Information Security Management System), security policy, and security plan with the necessary expertise and extensive knowledge of the latest security tools and concepts.

Digital Transformation

We draw your IT landscape of tomorrow.

Our digital transformation consultants provide a state-of-the-art solution tailored to your budget, requirements, and specific challenges. We use standard practices, modern technological solutions, and ensure everything is designed safely and with respect for privacy. You also need to be ready for the innovations of tomorrow, which is why a future-oriented architecture is always central!

To execute these projects as efficiently as possible, we pragmatically apply frameworks such as COBIT and ITIL where necessary.

In this context, we offer various packages to help you quickly and, above all, practically. Our Enterprise and Solution Architects are ready to support your projects immediately!

eGovernment

Together, we create an efficient government.

We support both rural and city centers with the organization and guidance of digitization projects and eGovernment. Our neutrality and thorough market knowledge are central to this process. Based on our experience in various projects in the public sector, at all levels, we work with you to improve your current operations and associated IT systems.

Our services are designed to seamlessly integrate with your existing processes, while simultaneously providing sustainable solutions to comply with the latest AI legislation requirements.
