On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect. GDPR is a European privacy and security law that establishes a new global standard for privacy rights, security, and compliance.
The GDPR is fundamentally about protecting and enabling the privacy rights of individuals. The GDPR establishes strict privacy requirements governing how organizations manage and protect personal data while respecting individual choice—no matter where data is sent, processed, or stored.
Tip of the Week #151 – GDPR
PrintVis CEO Kasper Tomshøj shares some very helpful links for getting your company compliant with the new data regulations impacting most of us – even those who do not reside in the EU.
Less than one week to go before GDPR is here – A long, but healthy process for many companies.
At this point, probably a lot of smaller companies start to panic… there are soooo many links to follow if you just search for “GDPR.”
Very simplified, compliance to GDPR means that you have to:
- Create a policy for managing data and define processes
- Ensure that your IT systems can support those policies
For creating a policy, Microsoft has a nice, simple self-test, to tell you where you are currently, and what you still need to do:
And for actually formulating the policy, I have found this tool very helpful:
When it comes to your IT systems there’s good news – if you are reading this you are probably working with Microsoft Dynamics NAV, so you are pretty well prepared.
If you are running an older version, you might need some simple clean-up functions for your customer/contact info – just contact your vendor – they can help you with that.
Thank you Kasper!
