Every organisation needs to comply with the legal framework of the countries it’s operating in.
One of the most significant changes in global privacy law in the last 20 years is the introduction of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The GDPR affects any company that deals with individuals living in the EU and has very specific requirements for the treatment of their personal data.
In order to get started with GDPR requirements, organisations need to have a clear understanding of how they process, store and secure personal data.
This data must be adequately secured and monitored so any breaches of personal data can be detected and communicated to the authorities immediately.
At the outset, complying with this regulation appears to be a daunting task – this is where identity governance can help.
Identity governance provides centralised visibility and control over 'who has access to what'.
The key elements of identity governance – data access governance, compliance controls, automated provisioning and password management – play important roles in identifying personal data, securing that data and showing proof of GDPR compliance across the entire organisation.
It provides a mapping of which users, in what roles, can access applications and data (both structured and unstructured data).
Identity governance lets an organisation easily
It’s the perfect solution for organisations wanting an easy way to remain compliant with the new laws without having to implement and monitor multiple point solutions.
