The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect on 25 May 2018, refers to protecting and enabling the privacy rights of individuals, which includes personal, business information and sensitive data captured by organisations.
Companies that implement an ERP platform to plan, manage, and analyse operations to improve business performance – and in the process handle customer data as noted above – are required to meet GDPR requirements.
If your business conducts business internationally (especially in Europe), has representation overseas and has access to customers’ data as stipulated in the regulations, GDPR compliance becomes mandatory.
If you are making the transition to cloud-based ERP tools to meet market demands and scale operations, data privacy compliance, such as GDPR, becomes paramount to ensure a trusted, private and secure cloud environment for business data and commercial customers.
