Enforcement of the GDPR Regulation will begin this May 25. Are you ready? If not, Microsoft offers some information-protection solutions to help your organization identify, classify, and protect your data. The tools track your adherence to the regulations, ensure you’re able to identify sensitive data, and can prevent that data from escaping your organization via email, etc. While this article focuses on GDPR policy management, the info also applies to other regulations (e.g. HIPAA). The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union (EU) regulation designed to protect the personally identifiable information of a citizen of the EU. This data includes name, home address, e-mail, even things like IP addresses and photos. The regulation gives members of the EU the right "to be forgotten" which means their data must be purged from your system. However, this regulation is not only limited to companies in the EU. U.S. businesses with customers in the EU are also required to comply. Failure to do so may result in a penalty of twenty million Euros, or 4 percent of your worldwide annual revenue for the prior fiscal year, whichever is higher. Find out more on OUR FORUM.
