MELBOURNE, Australia (PRWEB) August 26, 2019
Dropsuite (ASX:DSE), a leading cloud data security platform for businesses, today announced its latest technology update; a major expansion of GDPR capabilities within its popular Email Archiving product line. This latest utility release, GDPR Responder 2.0, advances the company's vision to safeguard, store, discover, export and delete data to its full potential, empowering customers to easily fulfill time-sensitive GDPR compliance requests by allowing them to define who can access particular types of data across the organization to control access, as well as how that data can be managed.
GDPR is starting to be taken more seriously now that several large fines have been issued by the EU's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO). In July 2019, the ICO announced it fined British Airways $230 million in connection with a significant 2018 data breach. Marriott International was fined $123 million after a November 2018 data breach that exposed personal data contained in approximately 339 million customer records, of which 30 million were residents of the European Economic Area (EEA).
Dropsuite now empowers the Data Protection Officer with the ability to navigate the grey areas where GDPR compliance meets businesses compliance — with tools to ensure easy management of regulated compliance responsibilities pertaining to archived business communications, attachments and email.
Expanded Dropsuite GDPR Utility Includes:
- Data Protection Officer (DPO): Assign role, review GDPR requests, review/flag/export/delete data, and explain why data can/cannot be deleted
- Delegated access permissions: Assign and delegate internal/external access permissions for GDPR discovery/review for auditors
- Right to be forgotten: Export a copy of found data under GDPR Article 15-1 for the requester or delete the data under GDPR article 17-1 that does not conflict with business regulations
- Message level retention and legal hold: Add retentions from 6 months to indefinitely on individual or bulk messages, add legal holds for indefinite periods on individual or bulk messages
- Compatibility: Compatible with Microsoft Exchange Online, Hosted Exchange and G Suite Gmail
“GDPR enforceability is starting to catch momentum, yet surprisingly, many organizations are still playing the waiting game with regard to implementing GDPR compliance utilities,” said Ryan Nichols, head of product for Dropsuite. “Email ecosystems such as Exchange Online for Office 365 are critical data systems covered under GDPR regulations that require specialized tools to make it easier for administrators to fulfill compliance-related tasks. Doing nothing, or not doing enough, exposes organizations to any number of risks that frankly don’t need to be taken since tools like Dropsuite GDPR Responder for Email Archiving are readily available.”
GDPR is just the tip of the privacy regulation iceberg, with new laws rolling out in Australia, Brazil, South Africa and Japan, as well as California and other states in the U.S in the near future. Dropsuite GDPR Responder 2.0 is ideal for helping Data Protection Officers comply with the plethora of data privacy frameworks and requirements being adopted worldwide.
