Last year, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced by the European Union which will enable people to better control their personal data. At the same time modernised and unified rules will allow businesses to make the most of the opportunities of the Digital Single Market by cutting red tape and benefiting from reinforced consumer trust. Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that they are committing to be GDPR compliant across their cloud services when enforcement begins on May 25, 2018.
Microsoft recently released General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance assessment tools for organizations. GDPR benchmark assessment tool will guide organisations through 26 questions and generates a downloadable report showing the readiness to comply with the GDPR’s provisions.
Microsoft’s GDPR readiness assessment tool for partners provides an in-depth analysis of the organization’s readiness and it offers actionable guidance on how to prepare for compliance, including how Microsoft products and features can help them.
GDPR goes into effect on May 25, 2018, by that time all organizations in Europe, and around the world should follow a range of new privacy and security requirements to operate in EU.
