Computers Nationwide in partnership with Microsoft 365 is ready to safeguard your individual privacy rights. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has taken effect as of May 25, 2018. We live in a time where digital technology profoundly impacts how we create meaningful conversations in measurable ways with the world around us. Central to this digital transformation is the ability to store and analyze massive amounts of data to generate deeper insights and more personal customer experiences. While this tremendously helps foster deeper brand-audience connections, Director of Microsoft 365, Alym Rayani, wrote in a recent article,“This helps all of us achieve more than ever before, but it also leaves an extensive trail of data, including personal information and sensitive business records that need to be protected.”
At Microsoft, their mission is to empower every person and every organization globally to achieve more. Trust is at the core of everything they do which is why they have been a long-standing alliance with Computers Nationwide. People won’t use technology they don’t trust. We are here to help your individual privacy rights feel safe and secure. Our Computers Nationwide team believes that privacy is a fundamental protected human right.
In order to prepare for GDPR, Microsoft has made a number of investments over the last year to support GDPR and the privacy rights of individuals. Here is a brief recap of how your business will be able to implement GDPR compliance:
