Thanks to Microsoft, GDPR Compliance just got Simpler
Microsoft has been working on updates since November 2017, that are designed to help businesses who are frantically trying to ensure that they are compliant with GDPR before it comes into effect in May.
This week, Microsoft announced the ‘General Availability’ status of these tools. We’re going to outline some of their features and how they can aid your business’s GDPR compliance.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a legal framework that sets guidelines for processing personal information. It addresses the privacy rights of data subjects and ensures that businesses will adopt a privacy-by-design approach. Organisations that fail to protect stored customer data could face a fine of €20 million or 4 percent of their annual turnover- whichever amount is greater.
To help businesses in their mission to become compliant, Microsoft is introducing the Compliance Manager dashboard and Azure Information Protection Scanner.
