GDPR Countdown Is Underway, Are You Compliant by 25 May 2018

If you do not know what GDPR is, this article is for you. Now is the time to start understanding how it may impact your business, as the European Unions General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are coming into force May 2018.

This will apply to any business which is either operating in Europe or targeting European businesses and the penalties for not being compliant could result in Organisations being fined up to 4% of annual global turnover for breaching GDPR or €20 Million.

I am sure at some point you will have read too many times “companies being cyber attacked and personal data being breached” look at the example of the attack on the NHS systems and this institutions either not having true consent from the people who they hold data on, or even worse, not really knowing what personal data their organisation/business was holding which was breached.

I could easily write a book on what GDPR actually means and how this affects businesses/Organisations, but that is not the intent of me writting these posts. My main intent is to make all businesses/organisations aware of these regulations and to provide you with the relevant links to all the information you need to work towards being compliant.

If this is the first time you have heard about GDPR or would like to find out more on how this may affect your business, then I would recommend reviewing the dedicated European Union GDPR portal which has all the content you need and considerations

But what does this mean for organisation/businesses with Dynamics 365?

Is Dynamics 365 compliant with GDPR? In short, Yes. Microsoft is committed to helping its commercial customers achieve GDPR compliance and Microsoft are the first major cloud provider to offer the contractual commitments required by GDPR. I highly recommend that you review Microsoft’s dedicated GDPR page.

For the first time in my posts l would like to point out a value video released by Microsoft which discusses Trust, Privacy and the GDPR, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cTp6JsO7UU.

Remember if you have any questions or concerns in terms of GDPR reach out and l will be able to help you with considerations
