The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in effect May 25, 2018 aims to give more rights to EU residents with regards to how their personal information is being collected, stored and used. EU residents now have the right to request organisation’s to stop using their personal data, return the data or delete it.
How GDPR affects Email
With email being the primary source for communication for businesses, it is an essential first step to find ways to make sure that the information contained within these emails is protected to comply with the new GDPR laws.
Companies storing backup on tapes and drives could be at a higher risk as according to GDPR, individuals could potentially ask for a callback of all tapes and drives in order to erase all their information.
