ELO and iFileMe: A Complete GDPR Compliance Solution
Comprehensive GDPR Compliance from a Single Source
What you need to know about GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a EU-based initiative that will become law on May 25, 2018. Although originating in the 28-member state bloc of the EU, it will impact all companies exchanging data with EU-based organizations. The objective of GDPR is to give individuals more control over their personal data, particularly when it comes to sharing information with businesses and other organizations who, if compromised, would pose a catastrophic problem.
According to the EU's GDPR Commission:
The objective of this new set of rules is to give citizens back control over of their personal data, and to simplify the regulatory environment for business. The data protection reform is a key enabler of the Digital Single Market which the Commission has prioritised. The reform will allow European citizens and businesses to fully benefit from the digital economy.
Compliance with GDPR is compulsory and will carry significant fines for failing to do so. Organizations generally become compliant in one of two ways:
Conduct an internal audit to identify all versions of personal data, consolidate it to one file in one location, have the individual it's connected to verify the organization's consent to have said data, and edit/update/secure as appropriate, or
Securely pass all personal data back to the individual it's connected to via a secure file-sharing platform, allowing the end user to grant and control consent authorizations
Of these options, the first is far more expensive, time consuming, and maintains liability for data security with the organization. Option 2 can be implemented nearly immediately and, by shifting the control of sensitive data to the end user, both shifts liability away from companies AND makes it significantly more difficult for hackers to illegally access large amounts of personal data.
