The EU GDPR Website features comprehensive details about the regulation and its history as well as answers to frequently asked questions about all different aspects of GDPR.
The following features, which are native to SpringCM, will help as you prepare for GDPR.
Contracts, resumes and other types of documents containing signatures and other identifying information are just as subject to GDPR data management guidelines and EU citizen removal requests as other more public-facing forms of data.
So if you are dealing with EU clients or customers in any capacity, the documents that underpin your relationships with them must be accounted for, and your IT setups must meet the GDPR regulatory burden.
The reason SpringCM is so well-positioned to handle this new world of regulatory demands from the EU is twofold.
First, SpringCM's infrastructure and operations have, from the outset, been built out and maintained with data privacy, portability, monitoring and convenience as the top priority.
Second, part of what makes SpringCM such a valuable tool for document management is that it focuses on centralization. Having information all stored and searchable in a central, cloud-based location – rather than scattered across various servers, in hard copies, and in disparate formats – makes managing the type of requests that could arise under GDPR easy.
And even for data that is necessarily unstructured, SpringCM can build out workflows that allow for the easy identification and full deletion of a given piece of requested data.
Companies conducting business in the EU will soon be positioned to reach out to all of their third-party vendors in order to confirm compliance with GDPR so as to not open themselves up to liability for penalties. SpringCM is able to offer this confirmation and give any affiliated businesses peace of mind about its level of compliance with its contracts and other documents stored and managed on the SpringCM cloud.
