GDPR and data analytics – A fundamental part of business strategy
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a hot topic right now and calls for action by companies of every size.
Our data analytics and audit management solutions offer you every opportunity to comply with the relevant requirements. In this article, I shall briefly examine our software’s compliant interfaces to the GDPR.
These cover three main areas: the protection of personal data when performing exports, the ability to perform pseudonymised processing in the data analytics tool, and the ability to administer associated controls and guidelines.
1. Protection of data during access and when exporting from SAP®
We started offering the add-on privacy protection module for our dab:Exporter extraction tool for SAP® data back in 2010. It allows you to automatically pseudonymise/anonymise personal data, or to completely exclude them from export processes. This means that personal data may not, as the case may be, even appear in the plain text of the analytics environment.
3. GDPR compliance framework for audit & risk management
The solutions portfolio is completed by frameworks for IT and compliance standards in ACL™ GRC – including the aforementioned new European General Data Protection Regulation, which is available as premium content for ACL™ GRC.
You can map the requirements of the GDPR in relation to your measures and controls within the company, perform associated automated self-assessments and receive pre-defined reports on the level of cover and any weaknesses.
