SAP GRC Content

SAP Process Control for GDPR

The regulator mandates that companies maintain a governance program to track processes, controls and activities implemented and performed across the organisation.

Winterhawk’s Data Privacy Consultants have compiled a best practice GDPR governance framework, based on thirteen overarching governance processes, with over 140 controls and activities that organisations are required to perform to demonstrate effective GDPR compliance. This best practice GDPR framework is the result of our Data Privacy Consultants performing GDPR Audit Assessments and running GDPR Compliance Projects for a range of clients across multiple industry sectors.

When combining our GDPR framework with Winterhawk’s GRC Experts, we now bring a content rich, best practice governance framework developed specifically for use on SAP Process Control. From this strongly adopted software platform, organisations can now start performing, with accountability and ownership the following:

  • Rapidly deploy 13 governance processes with over 140+ controls and activities that must be performed and assessed across the organisation
  • Document data sources, systems, data flows, data owners and categories ownership and categories
  • Perform organisation-wide assessments for a range of controls (DPIAs, Risks, Processes & Controls, Third Party Business Partner due diligence)
  • Upload, create, review and automatically distribute Policies & Procedural documents whilst tracking read receipts and acknowledgements
  • Assign preventative and corrective actions to anyone inside and outside the organisation to support continued improvement and remediate issues as they appear

SAP Risk Management with our Cybersecurity Risk Library


Winterhawk has created a best practice library of over 450+ cybersecurity risks, split across 27 different risk categories. The risk library was created through our GRC Domain Experts, to answer the frequent question asked of us; “Do you have a risk library for cybersecurity?”

Winterhawk has addressed the need for a best practice, rapidly deployed, risk management framework for cybersecurity risks.
Cybersecurity is now one of the top agenda items in senior management and board meetings as vulnerabilities past, present and future are continuously to be exploited. Cybersecurity risks are not always driven through system or software weaknesses but also though the human factor and organisational culture.
