Introducing Code University of Applied Sciences
Code University of Applied Sciences is revolutionizing the way young talent is prepared for the digital world of business. In 3 bachelor's degree courses, the state-accredited university imparts valuable knowledge about digital products, software solutions and the latest technologies and thus supports the developers, designers and digital entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
The challenge

As part of its accreditation, the university was already confronted with the important issue of data protection - a single data protection officer took care of it at the time. The sole responsibility of the employee was reflected in the ongoing uncertainty in GDPR-relevant areas, and the university also had to contend with many manual processes. She also complained that there was a lack of understandable preparation and structured training for employees. As a result of costly and time-consuming processes and the lack of data protection awareness for the entire company, the Code University of Applied Sciences was looking for a smart solution for their data protection compliance.

The solution

In heyData, the university not only found reliable legal know-how, but rather a digital all-in-one software solution with a focus on easy handling and accelerated processes that guarantees all-encompassing DSGVO compliance. After successful onboarding and introduction to the heyData platform, the data protection level of the university was determined and improvements made in the entirely digital audit. The Code University of Applied Sciences was then able to use the platform to retrieve all of the documents that were relevant to its data protection and had been created fully automatically. At the same time, digital training courses for employees began to sensitize them to data protection regulations and their impact on their daily work. In addition, the heyData platform enables ongoing monitoring of all relevant processes and data protection requests from the university. This ensures 100% data protection compliance.

The result

  • full data protection compliance in less than 2 weeks
  • Efficient use of resources: without heyData, 3 data protection officers would have been necessary in the future for adequate coverage
  • trained and informed employees through digital training
  • ongoing data protection compliance through heyData's simultaneous processing of all data protection issues and requests

"Efficient work: without heyData's software solution, we would have had to increase the number of data protection officers to 3"
