If you own a business and manage personal data, you’ve probably heard of it – and if you haven’t, the time has come to understand it.

On the 25th May 2018, a new regulation enforcing a new way of collecting, storing and using personal information will apply all over the EU.

Often shortened to GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation is an EU regulation replacing the Data Protection Directive of 1995. It specifies how consumers’ data should be used and protected. For businesses, it requires you to start making the changes needed to ensure you’re compliant.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 offers several features that will support you on your journey to being GDPR compliant.

GDPR and Dynamics

Reduction of risks. Dynamics 365 includes a safeguard by having all data in the same place – CRM – including personal data relevant to GDPR.

Higher level of security. Dynamics 365 enables control and management of who has access to this data. For example, it offers the ability to group together a set of privileges that limit the tasks that can be performed by any given user, or to restrict access to specific records and even fields.

Protection of the personal data that you control or process. Dynamics 365 is designed to optimize the security of your data: it is built using the Security Development Lifecycle that embeds security requirements into every phase of the development process and work with an encryption in transit between your users’ devices and our data centres, as well as in a Microsoft’s datacentre. Microsoft are a leading partner to the UK Governments Cyber Security Strategy. In today’s world of cybercrime and ransomware, it’s important your data is in safe hands.
