The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The regulation was adopted on 27 April 2016. It becomes enforceable from 25 May 2018 after a two-year transition period and, unlike a directive, it does not require national governments to pass any enabling legislation, and is thus directly binding and applicable.
With these key changes coming in place, it is evident that enterprises doing business in EU would need to take appropriate measures to protect the data of their customers and stakeholders. With the proliferation of smart phone and more and more enterprises allowing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), enterprises must be more vigilant about their communication – both internal as well as external. Several studies have shown that a large number of employees use consumer-grade messaging apps to communicate official information, which can be a huge risk for the enterprises. This can lead to data breaches, privacy breaches and above all may end up inviting hefty penalties under the GDPR regulations. It becomes inevitable for the enterprises to look for an alternative – A GDPR Compliant Secure Enterprise Messaging App.
