For example, when a company receives a request from a data subject that would like to know all the data a company has about them, this could include a new or old customer or employee, the company must be capable of providing all the information they have of the requestee fully and electronically and fulfill the request. When these Data Subject Requests (DSR) come in, companies have to react fast. Natuvion solves this problem for companies by first providing a one-day workshop with legal and IT experts to identify the fields of actions and as a result, helps them create a compliance roadmap. The tools Natuvion offers to help companies on their journey to compliance include the Data Search tool which was specifically built to search the entire system landscape and find where all the personal data is stored. This tool is the key to initiating the first step of finding personal data and starting a compliance program plan.
Natuvion has also developed the Anonymization tool that was designed to anonymize the determined data in their customer’s systems to ensure that it can still be used for things like reporting but serves no legitimation of use for instances that would be a breach against the data protection law. In cases where there is legitimate data, and a DSR request comes in, the firm has even developed a Data Subject Request App built on the SAP Cloud Platform to manage different requests easily. This app is the first of its kind to be created to handle requests, and like all of Natuvion’s other tools, it is built based on the guidance from lawyers with extensive expertise in data privacy.
“Natuvion’s key differentiator lies in our IT and legal knowledge that complement each other in such projects,” says Dahse. The Natuvion team consists of highly educated and experienced lawyers in the EU and also in the U.S. who work closely with the company’s IT team to ensure that all requirements are legally proofed in every step of the way. Not only does Natuvion support IT & Legal guidance onsite, but the company also has the world’s only SAP Privacy and Compliance Competence Center where they provide Legal, and IT support on-demand. As these compliance regulations impact all industries, Natuvion serves customers in multiple industries.

“The domino effect that was triggered by GDPR is expected to expand into even more states and countries where Natuvion is already involved in, and we already have the advantage of the experience we have accumulated in our international projects and partnerships. People really realize that companies need to implement a way to protect their personal data which is the best way to gain trust with their customers,” says Dahse.
The Americas region (South & North America) was new territory for the SAP partner and data privacy expert although the American IT market, in general, and the SAP market, in particular, has grown dynamically in recent years. Dahse also shares the company’s future strategy by stating,“With a local presence, we can better serve customers around the world.”
Joanne Lang has taken over the management of the newly founded public limited company where the development of a regional partner and customer network and the establishment of a local support team have already shown to be a success for Natuvion. “America is the next step for Natuvion as one of the fastest growing IT companies in Europe. Building and expanding in this market with such an exceptionally dynamic company, will be Natuvion’s strength in the coming year of 2019,” says Joanne Lang, Managing Partner, Founder, and CEO at Natuvion.
For simplifying projects such as GDPR implementation, for companies based in the U.S., during the cutover stage to go-live, Natuvion has developed their Project-Cutover app. This app has helped Natuvion place themselves as one of the first in the market to between traditional project planning and project execution tools. The app automatically transforms and executes project plans from Excel worksheets into SAP Business Process Management processes to provide dynamic team collaboration, accurate task status, time management, and all the alerts required for a seamless cutover. “Being an innovation partner on SAP® Cloud Platform, the Project-Cutover app is a huge breakthrough in SAP project management,” concludes Dahse.
