The technical aspects of GDPR for your Microsoft Data Platform

IS YOUR MICROSOFT DATA PLATFORM READY?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) imposes new rules on organizations in the European Union (EU) and those that offer goods and services to people in the EU, or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents, no matter where they are located.

=

Enhanced personal privacy rights

=

Increased duty for protecting data

=

Mandatory breach reporting

=

Significant penalties for non-compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) contains many requirements about collecting, storing, and using personal information, including how you:

  • Identify and secure the personal data in your systems
  • Accommodate new transparency requirements
  • Detect and report personal data breaches
  • Train privacy personnel and other employees

There’s a lot to do to get ready; we suggest that you begin reviewing your privacy and data management practices now so that you can take steps to comply before the regulation takes effect in May 2018. Failure to comply with the GDPR could prove costly, as companies that do not meet the requirements and obligations could face substantial fines and reputational harm.
