With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now taking full effect, marking a milestone for individual privacy rights and steps to a safer future as businesses we need to safeguard our people and data.
We live in a time where digital technology is profoundly impacting our lives, from the way we connect with each other to how we interpret our world. Central to this digital transformation is the ability to store and analyse massive amounts of data to generate deeper insights and more personal customer experiences. This helps all of us achieve more than ever before, but it also leaves an extensive trail of data, including personal information and sensitive business records that need to be protected.
At PKF Cooper Parry in partnership with Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every business to achieve more. Trust is at the core of everything we do because we have long appreciated that people won’t use technology they don’t trust. We also believe that privacy is a fundamental human right that needs to be protected.
Below are a few examples of how we can help you to safeguard your individual privacy rights;
Assess and manage compliance risk
Because achieving company compliance can be very challenging, understanding your compliance risk should be your first priority.
Compliance Score helps you continuously monitor your compliance status. Compliance Manager captures and provides details for each Microsoft control.
Protect personal data
At its core, GDPR is all about protecting the personal data of individuals – making sure there is proper security, governance, and management of such data to help prevent it from being misused or getting into the wrong hands.
To help ensure that your business is effectively protecting personal data as well as sensitive content relevant to company compliance needs, you need to implement solutions and processes that enable your business to discover, classify, protect, and monitor data that is most important.
