GRC ONE™ and your data
On May 25, 2018, a new landmark privacy law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in the European Union (EU). The GDPR expands the privacy rights granted to EU individuals, and it places many new obligations on organisations that market to, track or handle EU personal data, no matter where an organisation is located. GRC ONE Ltd is here to help our customers in their efforts to comply with the GDPR through our robust privacy and security protections.
What we at GRC ONE are doing
GRC ONE Ltd welcomes the GDPR as an important step forward in streamlining data protection requirements across the EU and as an opportunity for GRC ONE to deepen our commitment to data protection. Compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between GRC ONE Ltd and our customers in their use of our services. We have closely analysed the requirements of the GDPR and believe our products and services are already fully compliant with GDPR if used in the way they are marketed to our customers. However, we are working to make enhancements to our contracts, and to our documentation to help support our customers’ compliance with the GDPR regulations.
Data protection is a perpetual process, changing as the nature of our customers data and their use of our systems evolves. GRC ONE™ will continue to fully comply with both the wording and intent of the GDPR in the delivery of our products and services and help our customers to comply with their own GDPR responsibilities where it relates to GRC ONE™.
