What is GDPR?
The GDPR is a relatively new set of rules designed to give EU citizens more control over their personal data. Its goal is to simplify the regulatory environment for business so citizens and businesses in the EU can maximize the benefit from the growing digital economy.
The reforms are designed to mitigate the issues that have been created in the world we’re living in now, and brings laws and obligations across Europe on the same playing field as the internet-connected age.
Why it’s a good idea
GDPR regulations are uniform across all 28 countries in the EU. Following the regulations has become a mandate and as the public use of services in a company grows, concerns over data collection, storage, and dissipation would be protected.
How do we do it?
We take into consideration a multitude of factors which include but not limited to:
- The storage, transfer, access, and security of electronic information.
- Document retention schedules and their implementation
- Written proof of compliance
- Documentation pertaining to data protection
- The type of data that is being stored and transferred
- Incorporation of newly-created data
- Data accessibility.
At Rhymetec we make sure a data management plan is created and active which is a significant step toward GDPR compliance. We collaborate between all business areas, IT, management, and the corporate legal department to create a comprehensive data management plan. Personal data in possession of third-party providers is also a priority we look out for and include within the data management plan, these include cloud service vendors or data archival companies.
