GDPR compliance software

List of GDPR compliance tools

Collecting, storing, and processing data of the EU citizens have changed on May 25, 2018, when European Parliament decided to replace Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new law has placed more emphasis on consumer data protection and gave consumers greater control over their personal information. Complying with these rules gets complex as more customers’ data is collected and processed. Following GDPR Compliance software can help to simplify and speed up this tedious process.

GDPR defines personal data as information that relates to an identified or identifiable individuals. It effectively means information such as:

• Names,
• ID numbers,
• Addresses,
• Ethnic or racial information,
• IP addresses,
• Cookie identifiers,
• Biometric information,
• Sexual orientation,
• Genetics and health-related information,
• And many more.

With more data collected, list can get much longer making it difficult to identify all sensitive information by hand. GDPR Compliance software can automatically detect such data and scan it repeatedly to identify any newly added personal information.

Another obligation imposed by GDPR is need of customers’ consent to collect and process their personal data. With half a billion of customers in the European Union, it can get complicated without proper GDPR compliance tool. What’s more, customers have certain rights to their personal information such as:

• Right to be forgotten,
• Right to have information updated,
• Right to access collected data,
• Right to be notified,
• Right to restrict processing.

Furthermore, not complying to GDPR rules or not answering customer request can result in huge financial fines which can amount to 20 million Euros or 4% of annual global revenue (whichever is greater).
