With GDPR taking effect May 25, 2018, GDPR-compliant Enterprise messaging is no longer a recommendation for the enterprises doing business in Europe – it’s a necessity.

About GDPR: The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The regulation was adopted on 27 April 2016. It becomes enforceable from 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and, unlike a directive, it does not require national governments to pass any enabling legislation, and is thus directly binding and applicable.

Need for a GDPR Compliant Secure Enterprise Messaging

With these key changes coming in place, it is evident that enterprises doing business in EU would need to take appropriate measures to protect the data of their customers and stakeholders. With the proliferation of smart phone and more and more enterprises allowing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), enterprises must be more vigilant about their communication – both internal as well as external. Several studies have shown that a large number of employees use consumer-grade messaging apps to communicate official information, which can be a huge risk for the enterprises. This can lead to data breaches, privacy breaches and above all may end up inviting hefty penalties under the GDPR regulations. It becomes inevitable for the enterprises to look for an alternative – A GDPR Compliant Secure Enterprise Messaging App.

Key Requirements of a Secure Enterprise Messaging Solution Under GDPR

  • Personal Privacy: Individuals will have the right to access, correct errors, erase, export, transfer and object to processing of their personal data.
  • Controls and Notifications: Enterprises will need to protect personal data using appropriate security (right from the design of the system), notify authorities of any breaches, obtain appropriate consents for processing data and keep records detailing data processing.
  • Transparent Policies:Enterprises are required to provide clear notice of data collection, outline processing purposes and use cases and define data retention and deletion policies. The personal data cannot be exported outside of EU.
  • Administration: Enterprises will need to employ a Data Protection Officer, train privacy personnel and employees, audit and update data policies and create and manage compliant vendor contracts.
