ADManager Plus helps you comply with the GDPR

What is GDPR compliance?

Is your organization based in the European Union? Does it service customers in the EU in anyway?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, your organization must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from May 25, 2018. The GDPR compliance is all about the personal data of employees, customers, and prospects that companies hold. Ignoring this mandate can have major consequences - €20 million or 4 percent of your global turnover in GDPR fines, to be exact.

What are the GDPR requirements?

Organizations collect and process a huge amount of sensitive personal data for their daily operations. To reduce the risk of a data security breach, and to provide data subjects with more control over their personal data, according to the GDPR regulations, organizations should:

  • Contain specific regulations to give individuals more control over their personal information.
  • Include a privacy assessment for a wide range of personal data (name, email, IP address, cookies, radio-frequency identification, and more).
  • Educate their IT professionals on auditing policies as well as handling, storing, and processing their clients' personal data.
  • Adopt technical measures to prevent and promptly detect breaches.
