The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been approved by the European Union and, once it comes into force in May 2018, it will give data subjects significant new rights over how their personal data is collected, processed, and transferred by data controllers and processors. It demands significant data protection safeguards to be implemented by organizations. The time to get ready is now, as the consequences of getting it wrong are significant.
GDPR is coming fast, it almost certainly applies to your company, and the consequences of getting it wrong are severe.
The GDPR will require companies to have/provide a greater understanding of where and how sensitive data is stored, transferred, and accessible and in particular how companies police and audit this data.
How does the File Fabric help with GDPR?
The Storage Made Easy File Fabric can be used by companies to help comply with the forthcoming GDPR, allowing business to monitor, secure and audit all data silos, enforcing governance and control of data.
We have produced three white papers. Two in conjunction with Osterman Research, an analyst that looks at what the GDPR implications are and how your company can prepare for GDPR. The third, taking an in-depth look at how the Storage Made Easy File Fabric can help to enforce GDPR policies.
