GDPR: Five lessons learned, Veeam compliance experience shared
A step-by-step guide for IT professionals.
Veeam is committed to sharing its GDPR compliance experience with you. This regulation is complex and fact specific, meaning each organisation's GDPR compliance programme may mean something different from the next company. GDPR is a major update to the Data Protection Directive from 1995, or more specifically 95/46/EC (that's right, over 21 years between major releases!), and the data intensive world we live in is significantly different than the world we lived in in 1995.
Many people might think that the GDPR is just an IT issue, but that is the furthest from the truth. It affects everyone - not just IT. We have prepared this white paper as a discussion of how Veeam interprets GDPR as of the date of publication. As a privately held information technology company that develops backup, disaster recovery and data management software for virtual, physical and cloud-based workloads to provide Availability for the Always-On Enterprise, it has spent a lot of time with GDPR not only complying with it as a global organisation, but also in development of its products.
This white paper should not be relied upon as legal advice or determination on how GDPR applies to your organisation. Veeam encourages you to do as it did and work with legally qualified professionals to discuss GDPR and how it applies to your organisation and collaborate and build a plan towards compliance. Veeam provides this white paper "as-is" and makes no warranties, express or implied as to the information in this white paper.
