Data protection and its importance within any firm is a component that’s often overlooked. Nevertheless, rules and regulations are becoming more stringent and unforgiving. This is where the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation comes in handy.
So, what’s GDPR? In a nutshell, it’s a directive by which the European Parliament, Council of the European Union and European Commission plan to reinforce and amalgamate data protection for all individuals within the EU. The regulation will be implemented as of 25th May 2018, which is why AIS Software decided to highlight the importance and urgency of being compliant.
Qualifying for legislation
Organisations first need to assess their stored personal data, categorising it to understand where the personal and sensitive data exists. Drafting a data flow map normally helps businesses gauge the pattern of data through the company, offer intelligibility on who has “eyes on” the data, people’s skillsets and, ultimately, identifies where the data ends up.
The GDPR imposes a risk-based tactic with the development of suitable gearshifts, ensuring that management recognise the perils associated with the loss, misappropriation, theft or any other compromise of customer data.
