What are you doing about GDPR? - 3 Keys to Compliance

Jun 7, 2017 9:22:38 AM by John Mancini


May 2018 is just around the corner, and there is a mad scramble to figure out what to do about GDPR. Here are the 3 Keys to Your GDPR Compliance Strategy.

1 -- Unstructured Content

Managing unstructured information and documents are key to GDPR compliance.  According to the European Commission, “Personal data is any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life.” The Commission notes, “It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address.”

2 -- Metadata

A key element in GDPR is data security. A metadata driven system can easily enforce advanced security (dynamic security based on the value of the metadata) to protect the content based on what is it and not on where it is stored.

3 -- All Users, not just Compliance types

A comprehensive GDPR solution should address not only C-Level Compliance and Security Executives and Legal Directors, but every single line of business user working with Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Privacy Controls must be embedded in the architecture of IT systems, operations, and business processes without lessening functionality for the User.
