GDPR is a significant step Europe takes to build to secure the development of a Digital Single Market. Compliance with GDPR requires considerable effort from organisations working with personal data. As legal and technical approaches both appear in the field of data protection, confusion might appear whether organisations should comply with cyber security standards or now rather with GDPR.
In fact, there is no contradiction: to achieve GDPR compliance is not an alternative of working with cyber security standards, rather the process should be based on existing standards that the organisation has chosen to comply with. What counts is the proper mapping of GDPR articles with controls of the chosen standard and whether the content of each control is adapted, implemented and checked regularly according to GDPR.
