General Data Protection Regulation 
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) goes into effect on 25 May 2018. The primary objective is to provide individuals more control over their personal data and how it is processed.

To comply with the GDPR, organisations must know where their data is, what Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is contained in the data and secure that data at a level that is most likely beyond the current level of data protection. 

Consumers are required to have easier access to their data and should be able to transfer it more easily between service providers. Consumers should be able to request to have their personal data deleted if there are no legitimate grounds for retaining it.

All companies need to follow the advice of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and document the data they may hold, update their processes to ensure that data is handled in such a way that access requests can be dealt with swiftly, have the ability to audit who has processed data within their processes and generally consider investment in systems that provide a uniform approach to ensure compliance.

For more information on how Toshiba can help you assess how you handle documents and data within your business and recommend tools that can help support new procedures you may be implementing to comply with the new rules, read our Technology: Helping Manage GDPR guide.
