[Podcast] A User's View of GDPR

Aug 16, 2018 11:52:38 AM by Sean McGauley

It's hard to believe it has been just about 3 months since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25th, 2018. This new regulation was designed to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU) and came with a strict set of compliance protocols. And, because GDPR also applies to the export of personal data outside the EU, it's applicable to any entity that uses or exchanges this data - so, there are a lot of us all around the world feeling the pressure of GDPR.

To help organizations prepare, there's no shortage of valuable GDPR resources available all over the internet. But, what about advice from the users working in the trenches? What advice do they have? That's exactly what we aimed to find out with this episode of AIIM on Air.

Join your host Kevin Craine as he sits down with Elisabeth Belisle, Digital Transformation Consultant at Restore PLC, and Ed Steenhoek, Solution Principal and Product Manager at Informed Consulting to chat about the biggest difficulties being experienced right now by organizations working to be compliant with the GDPR and steps organizations should take to assess their state of compliance.

Lions and Tigers and Facebook – Oh My!

Mar 30, 2018 10:52:23 AM by Bob Larrivee




Yep, that is what I am hearing these days, reminiscent of the scene from the Wizard of Oz when they are entering the forest, knowing that there are animals and possible danger hiding in the shadows. Yet they choose to enter anyway.

Now we have Facebook, and news that information was collected and used by Cambridge Analytica. So how does this happen? Have you ever agreed to play a game, use and app, or participate in any other social media activity where you are asked to allow the app to access your Facebook information and contacts? Hmmm, could that be a way they collect some of your data? Do you share information, videos, and messages with friends who then share them with others who share them with others, and so on? Could that be a way your data is being collected? Is it possible that like the characters from Oz, we are all willing participants in allowing our data to be shared with others, and then surprised when it shows up somewhere outside of Kansas unexpected, or is potentially part of a major data breach that has suddenly been exposed?

4 Special Requirements Social Media and Collaboration Create for GDPR Compliance

Jan 26, 2018 9:29:26 AM by John F. Mancini

A new set of European rules and standards related to privacy and data protection (the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR) has set in motion a mad compliance and security scramble not only for European companies, but also for any company doing business in Europe or with European customers. The regulation is designed to harmonize privacy across the EU, codify more rigorous privacy rights; strike a balance between privacy and security and create an explicit obligation for both data controllers and processors to demonstrate compliance with GDPR. The clock is ticking – the regulation goes into effect on May 25th, 2018, and the potential penalties for non-compliance are significant (organizations found to be in breach of GDPR may be fined up to 4% of annual revenues or 20 million Euro, whichever is the greater).
