The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the EU will come intoeffect on 25 May 2018. How can companies cope with this new situation? With their Enterprise Resource Authorization Manager (ERAM) programme, Tools4ever has developed a tool to support compliance with the new law. The General Data Protection Regulation will significantly change the way companies deal with data of EU citizens. To comply with the new legal requirements, companies need a data management strategy, first of all for sensible personal data. With the new law, EU citizens have a right to demand an insight into their stored personal data. Therefore, companies must find a way to locate data as quickly as possible.
