The Easy Way to Track GDPR Compliance


GDPR is an acronym that was top of mind for of privacy officers, CIOs, and even marketers across the EU during the early months of 2018. Now that we’re approaching a year since the regulation went into effect, organizations should have a handle on what type of data is impacted and how to handle compliance. The ongoing challenge is tracking and documenting the steps required for GDPR compliance as a business evolves over time.

While numerous one-off templates to create GDPR reports based on a moment in time are available, Altova has created the first long-term solution for documenting the entire GDPR compliance management process.

CbC Reporting Made Easy


A recent mandate from the OECD calls on large, multi-national companies to report financials annually for each country in which they do business to their local tax authority. The OECD requires that this detailed Country by Country (CbC) Report be filed in XML document according to their reporting schema.
