The beginning


Xavier Gobert and Gautier Sobczak are working together in a CRO.

On the 24th of May 2016, the GDPR entered into force 20 days after its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

The GDPR will replace Directive 95/46/EC, which came into force 20 years ago. By setting a global standard for data protection, the Regulation will strengthen the EU’s internal market to benefit citizens and businesses.

The GDPR will give EU citizens more control over their data and improve their online and offline security.

Co-founder of MyData-TRUST: Xavier & Gautier

Our founders start to notice the problems regarding the Life Science sector. They begin to think about building a company specialized in regulation and 100% dedicated to our industry.

At the beginning of 2017Xavier Gobert and Gautier Sobczak start to build the services and define a strategy.

They created MyData-TRUST on the 27th of July, 2018.


In 2017, they created the Business Plan and started searching for funding.

Regarding the new tool GDPR e-learning, a new training – a GDPR Training made by and for Clinical Professionals – has joined the training package of MyData-TRUST. The latest online training is available in English and lasts for about 1h30, during which clinical professionals build up their understanding of the fundamentals of the GDPR in their specific sector. The training will also let them know their role and responsibilities as clinical research professionals and better understand how to design a GDPR-compliant clinical study.

According to Xavier Gobert, CEO and co-founder of MyData-TRUST, “This course is an efficient training, composed of interactive questions and study cases. During this online training, Clinical Professionals will start with the key concepts of the GDPR applied to clinical research, followed by how to apply them in the context of a clinical study. This course has been created specifically for Clinical Professionals because health data are considered sensitive data under the GDPR requirements and should be protected with extra care.”

The SUMMITS continue to occur in Brussels and Paris, with some adaptations due to the covid situation. In December, MyData-TRUST created its first Hybrid conference in Brussels and welcomed around 30 attendees on-site and more than 100 online.

“Our US customers asked us for services involving international Data Protection laws and, on top of that, regulations on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)”, explains Gautier Sobczak, CBO & Co-Founder at MyData-TRUST. “Because of these frequent requests, we decided to look for a reliable partner with expertise in HIPAA matters based in the US. After several months of searching and meeting with potential partners, we decided to develop a close partnership with Colington Consulting, a leading HIPAA compliance provider.”


MyData-TRUST on its way to become a worldwide leader in its domain. Thanks to this partnership MyData-TRUST gets one step closer in the realization of its ambition, becoming the worldwide Data Privacy leader for healthcare organizations.

“HIPAA compliance is a vital element for the protection of electronic Protected Health Information and crucial to ensure that healthcare organizations can pursue their thriving business”, explains Sobczak.
