GDPR

Hi all,

for those of us that are doing business inside the EU there is a new regulation coming up called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
It will be implemented by May next year and many of my customers are worried/interested what that meens to them regarding email, log files, E-dir, file server and so forth.
When it comes to all Microfocus products from old Novell to new HPE, what can you do and what do you do to be GDPR compliant?
And what products can you use to relief customers pain with GDPR?

Re: GDPR

Remember this: The GDPR is really the same laws and rules that have
been in effect in the Scandinavian countries since the 1980's...

All that has changed is that there has been clarifications and that
there can actually be consequences if you break the regs, so bacically:

- Make sure you do not store studd you do not need
- Ask yourself: Why do we store this. If you do not have an answer,
then don't
- Make sure you document the procedures for handling personal data.

Also note that there might be other laws that regulate what you can do.
Say that an employee asks to be removed from your system, but laws
regarding accounting might say otherwise..

GDPR is like data security. Everybody telling you it can be solved by
products or technology is lying and doesn't understand it. GDPR means
you must *understand* it. You must know what rights your users and every
other person you do business with has, and you must enable your
processes to deal with those rights.

It all starts with a lawyer. And a *LOT* of coffein and tranquilizers at
the same time.

Some examples: Everybody you personally email with has the right to
demand from you to delete all traces of every communication you ever
did. However, there may be regulations in place that require you to
archive every such communication for a specified amount of time.

Which one wins? No technology (at this point) can tell you.

And most of them in Germany. And most everybody simply ignores ever
since, and my gut feeling is that nothing will change in that regard.

Well said! I get distinctive Y2K-feelings here. There are a lot of
companies that are out to make a quick buck here.

The best info I have gotten so far, apart from that I wrote a study
material describing the Finnish data protection act in 1985.. Is a
briefing we had from a lawyer employed by the finnish telcos. Bottom
line: No-one knows how it will play out, but the positive thing is that
people are at least tinking about it.

Not just business withing the EU, but even just with EU citizens and
residents. While it is largely a tuning and repackaging of some other
existing regulations, this time it as teeth with huge fines.
With the rest of the world looking on to reproduce it in many other
regulations, we may all end up dealing with what are basically some
common sense measures to take.
The trick will be how heavily it is enforced as the baseline of 10
Million Euros penalty for compliance failure, will certainly get some
attention.

also
- Make sure you change the passwords on your security cameras so that
they don't let just anyone in the world see who is visiting your
facility like at least one Dental practise did.

Likely to add in some audit function to make sure it is all working as
designed, after having designed it all.
It is largely just process and procedure, not just winging it.
