Tugboat Logic partners with Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce on diagnostic tools for GDPR readiness


Joint collaboration leads Tugboat Logic to open its first European office in Dublin to support client growth and continued collaboration with the Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce and Dublin City University.

June 27, 2018 (SAN FRANCISCO and DUBLIN) The new Tugboat Logic GDPR Readiness Assessment Tool, available free to the community, was developed leveraging research from the Irish Center for Cloud Computing and Commerce (IC4) at Dublin City University. The Tugboat Logic Assessment Tool guides end users through a series of questions to assess an organization’s state of readiness for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and also informs the user with insights and relevant references from the regulation. The GDPR Readiness Assessment Tool generates a user-friendly report that empowers the participant to engage other decision makers within the organization to take action and work towards adherence to the regulation.

“Global firms face operate in an increasingly complex regulatory environment. Non-compliance with data protection regulation, and GDPR specifically, carries significant reputational and financial risk.” said Professor Theo Lynn, Principal Investigator at IC4. “This initial collaboration with Tugboat Logic provides both US and European organizations of all sizes with a simple, convenient and shareable tool and report on GDPR readiness and represents a strong first step in GDPR compliance risk mitigation.”

“We were looking for technology solutions to help with our GDPR readiness,” said Michael Kuhlmann, CEO of Colony Networks. “We found Tugboat Logic had the policy framework and workflow we needed to supplement our compliance operations and process within our product development team and with our clients in Europe.”

“IC4 and Dublin City University have been great partners, said Ray Kruck, CEO and co-founder of Tugboat Logic. “Our collaboration has enabled us to connect to the EU faster and with greater impact. We’re also really excited to be opening our first EU office open in Dublin.”
