On May 25, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect throughout Europe, and any global business that handles information from EU citizens and residents must prove compliance. Article 17 of the GDPR stipulates that organizations must adhere to customers’ ‘right to be forgotten.’ This right covers three main principles:

• Individuals can request the deletion of data about them.
• Companies will only keep data long-term to comply with retention policies or other acceptable reasons (reversing the burden of proof).
• Individuals must provide explicit consent for data about them to be held and processed. Companies must be able to provide evidence of individuals providing this knowing consent.

Blancco data erasure solutions allow organizations to securely remove personal data on a variety of IT assets, including laptops, PCs, servers and removable media to satisfy GDPR data minimization requirements and ‘right to erasure’ requests. Additionally, Blancco Management Console allows organizations to track auditable, tamper-proof data erasure reports that can be kept in a single location on-site or in the cloud and accessed from anywhere, at any time. This provides easy access to erasure reports if data controllers or consumers must be notified of the date, time and specifics of when data was erased. These auditable reports can also be easily exported and used to prove compliance when sent directly to the requestor.

Use the following resources to see how Blancco solutions can help organizations achieve compliance with the new regulation.
