White Paper – The Operational Impact of the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on IT

Author: Dana Simberkoff, JD, CIPP

The GDPR has global reach – it’s not just for organizations with a physical presence in the EU. The broad terms of the GDPR mean that any company with a website offering goods or services (including cloud services) to citizens of the EU may be subject to the regulation. This marks a significant change to the previous law, which most courts generally agree only maintains jurisdiction over companies with an established business in a particular state. Moreover, the new law imposes significantly greater financial penalties.

Get a closer look at the impact this has on how your data is managed to understand:

  •  How do you disclose your data privacy and protection practices?
  •  How do you provide transparency, choice, and consent to your customers?
  •  Where do you implement safeguards and controls around the collection, storage, protection, and sharing of personal data?

ABOUT SESSION

GDPR Readiness of Organizations Based on Survey From CIPL and AvePoint

“We evaluated others, but decided on DocAve because of AvePoint’s dedication to making the best tools for SharePoint, its second-to-none customer service, and its great support.”

“DocAve saved us significant time and effort in our SharePoint migration.”

“DocAve offered the world’s leading SharePoint storage optimization solutions as well as products to solve other challenges around migration, administration, and content management.”

“Apart from the product itself, which is exceptional, I think AvePoint’s sales and support teams are what really set the company apart from the other providers out there.”

“Since implementing DocAve and moving content out of SQL, our SharePoint environment is noticeably faster and no end-users have complained, which is always a good sign.”
