GDPR File Transfer
Most organisations will handle personal data in some way so it’s essential that you’re clear on GDPR File Transfer legislation. Taking the right steps towards compliance will avoid breaches and the risk of hefty fines.
GDPR is the new EU regulation for handling personal data. It stands for ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ and comes into force on the 25th May 2018. This stringent set of security measures relate to how and where personal data is collected, handled and used. By reinforcing individuals’ rights and giving them back control, it’s hoped GDPR will restore confidence and strengthen the EU internal market.
GDPR impacts data transfer and file sharing processes and systems significantly. Reviewing these should be one of your first steps towards GDPR compliance. Systems are quick to implement and address several requirements simultaneously.
