Meeting GDPR Requirements Using Managed File Transfer

GDPR and GoAnywhere data sheet

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to replace the Data Protection Directive in the EU on May 25, 2018. At this time, and long afterward, organizations that aren’t found compliant with its requirements will face hefty fines and penalties.

Are you ready for the GDPR? Is your organization at risk of being found noncompliant, or worse, facing a potential data breach of sensitive personal data? Many companies meet these questions with unease.

But don’t worry. GoAnywhere can help your organization meet GDPR requirements.

The General Data Protection Regulation aims to give EU citizens control of their personal data. What is personal data? According to this press release from the European Commission, it’s defined as “any information relating to an individual whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address.”

For organizations to protect and secure this personal data, the GDPR requires them to meet eight different rights. They are:

  • The right to be informed*
  • The right to access
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure
  • The right to restriction of processing
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to object processing
  • The right to not be subject to automated decision making
