The information age is evolving, so the rules designed to protect our interest also need to evolve.
The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which was accepted on May 25, 2016 to go into effect on May 25, 2018 was framed for this purpose. GDPR essentially defines and strengthens the rights that data subjects residing in the European Union have regarding personal data relating to them and attempts to unify data protection laws across Europe, regardless of where that data is processed.
Azure is on track to be in compliance when the rules go into effect. Microsoft has delved into the matter and has come up with a detailed guide for Azure users, with some help from Air France.
GDPR is a serious rule -changing game and should not be taken lightly. On top of it, it takes time to implement it and harmonize with the existing rules and policies to be compliant. As cloud brokers, Miadria keeps close relationships with all major cloud-companies and can help your company become compliant with GDPR fast.
