GDPR (European General Data Protection Regulation) is a new set of regulations in force from the 25th May 2018. These rules have been created to strengthen and protect the personal data of European Union (EU) data subjects, and are designed to cover the rights of EU residents and citizens in terms of privacy, the protection of personal data, security of that data, and consumer consent in a world of increasing data flow between businesses and consumers across the world.
If you store and process data of anyone located in the EU or communicate with them then you are required to be GDPR compliant regardless of where you are based geographically.
GDPR updates and replaces the data protection laws currently in place, and is directly enforceable in each EU member state. GDPR will result in a lot of changes to the way that data is handled, tracked and stored for organizations in the EU.
Strong privacy, data protection and security are at the heart of our mission and as such we have been working diligently to prepare for the EU GDPR legislation and are fully compliant. We are committed to supporting our customers to be compliant with their use of Symsoft products and services too.
Besides ensuring our products and services that our customers use are GDPR compliant, we are also an important part of our parent company CLX Communications and how they are helping their customers stay GDPR compliant with our infrastructure.
