How Microsoft Dynamics 365 helps your business be GDPR compliant
12th February 2018
Microsoft Dynamics 365 helps to safeguard your data in the cloud, this includes personal data, and can help you reduce risks and achieve compliance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) ahead of the deadline of 25 May 2018.
The GDPR is an EU regulation replacing the Data Protection Act 1996. It outlines how consumers’ data should be used and protected and reflects the changes in the way advances in technology and social media have impacted how personal data is collected and used. Microsoft is committed to GDPR compliance across their cloud services when enforcement begins in May 2018.
Importantly the GDPR applies to all organisations, no matter how big or small, that collect and store data relating to EU residents. While there is no need to panic, and many of the new requirements are basically common sense, we strongly advise that you review your data and compliance in good time ahead of the May deadline.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 can be used to help organisations who are looking for compliant ways to store and manage their data. It gives you control and management over who has access to your data and what data specific individuals can access. It also offers effective means of keeping data accurate and up to date, exporting data, obtaining appropriate consents for processing data and erasing data if required.
