As many companies are coming to realize, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) issued by the EU, which takes effect in May 2018, has a lot of stipulations and guidelines. It is definitely a team effort to follow all the rules and ensure compliance to the plethora of requirements. Many of these directives align with other regulations such as HIPAA and Basel, with regards to knowing what data you have, which data is sensitive, and who is accessing it. GDPR takes it a step further with additional personal protections and significant penalties for non-compliance.
IDERA recognizes that companies need help managing the many moving pieces of this puzzle, and offers solutions that help to address these issues. In the new whitepaper, How IDERA Products Can Help You Comply with GDPR, the GDPR articles are listed by topic and include a list of relevant IDERA products.
For example, the ER/Studio family provides capabilities for creating business processes, defining security classifications for data objects, and documenting metadata related to GDPR requirements.
