Managing GDPR Projects Efficiently
Practical experience from completed GDPR projects
Much has been reported about the GDPR, and the key facts are well known by now. But many people nevertheless still lack a clear understanding of how to implement the GDPR in practice in a given company.
What really needs to be done, which tools are useful, how long does it take, what aspects require the most focus?
“Sourcing International helped us to establish a very efficient and transparent model for examining business cases. With this model, we are now able to independently compare various IT outsourcing variants. The graphical representation supports our decisions at the management level.”

“Dr. Höllwarth (Sourcing International) manages a European network of lawyers (CPC) very effectively. He is able to convert numerous and diverse ideas and proposals into measurable goals, objectives and tasks. By doing so, he ensures that the network will be able to position itself as a reliable European agency for organisations facing the challenges of the GDPR in 2019.”
JK Group d.o.o. (Ljubljana, Slovenia)
“I have been working with Dr. Tobias Höllwarth (Sourcing International) for over three years in the field of data protection in the cloud environment. The main focus of our work is on identifying, preparing, and delivering structured content within a network of lawyers (CPC) from over 30 countries. Tobias manages and leads this project in a calm and respectful manner, and he never misses even a byte of information that is relevant to our project—despite dealing with extensive amounts of critical information coming from so many participants.”

“Tobias is the strategic mind and the driving force behind the CPC project. He is the one that managed to bring together and continuously expand a group of lawyers from all over Europe, which is now beginning to make tangible contributions to the discourse on data protection in Europe under the brand name EuroCloud. That is what project management is about!”
Zepos & Yannopoulos (Athens, Greece)
“Dr. Höllwarth has succeeded in bringing together a network of lawyers from across the EU with the goal of reducing cloud topics—and GDPR-related issues in particular—to a common denominator that is easily comprehensible and applicable in practice. Following up on the base document entitled ‘Cloud Privacy Check’, many other simplified presentations of seemingly complex topics have been published.”
