DXC Technology Named a Leader in NelsonHall’s 2018 Vendor Evaluation for GDPR Services


DXC Technology (DXC), the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services company, has been positioned as a Leader in the NelsonHall Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) for General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Services. In addition to being named a Leader in the Overall market segment for GDPR Services, the report also named DXC as a Leader in Consulting, Implementation and Ongoing Management of GDPR services.

This is the first NelsonHall assessment of vendor capabilities in providing GDPR services. It focuses on the range of services that enable clients to meet GDPR requirements, including consulting, implementation, change management and ongoing compliance management.

“Being named a Leader across Consulting, Implementation and Ongoing Management of GDPR services showcases the power of DXC’s breadth of expertise and flexibility to support our clients for this new regulation,” said Chris Moyer, vice president and general manager, Security, DXC Technology. “Our position as a Leader in the NelsonHall report demonstrates that with our technology independence, world-class talent and proven track record for innovation, DXC is well poised to deliver services for clients on their journey for GDPR readiness.”

“Our GDPR services are not only focused on the immediate need for compliance, but also on helping our clients move beyond compliance,” said Martin Risau, senior vice president and general manager, Analytics, DXC Technology. “By combining DXC’s advisory, analytics and security services, we are helping our clients to enable trust and confidence in their data which, beyond GDPR readiness, act as a catalyst for ongoing digital transformation across their businesses.”

DXC’s GDPR Strengths

Mike Smart, NelsonHall senior analyst and author of the report, noted DXC’s ability to enable clients to accelerate GDPR readiness. He said, “DXC’s GDPR deep dive in its Cyber Reference Architecture (CRA) and the construction of work packages enable clients to become compliant quicker.”

Specifically, the report noted several of DXC’s strengths in GDPR services:

  • Quick implementation without rework, due to DXC’s CRA and templates
  • Recognized as having some of the first consultants to be accredited as data protection officers by the European Commission
  • Ability for clients to upgrade and outsource capabilities to DXC’s large security/disaster recovery services team, thereby enabling proper compliance, incident response and backups
  • Ability to identify sector-specific threats with the expertise of DXC’s large, cross-industry security research team
