Simplify GDPR compliance with Microsoft platform, endpoint and data management
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires organizations to strengthen data protection and security measures to protect the personally identifiable information (PII) of EU citizens. More specifically, organizations must ensure only people who should have access to PII have that access. Also, reasonable measures must be in place to protect data from unauthorized access as well as prove accountability of those accessing it.
GDPR impacts all organizations, in all industries and regions — even those outside the EU that collect and store personal information of EU citizens. GDPR also poses major challenges for organizations in regards to compliance and auditing and the requirement for data breach notifications. Organizations need continuous compliance and auditing to be able to demonstrate compliance at any time. Furthermore, in the event of a breach, organizations must notify the local Data Protection Authority (DPA) and all affected customers within 72 hours, or risk heavy fines and reputation damage.
