MalCare’s Commitment to GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union (EU) regulation, which establishes a new framework for handling and processing of personal data of EU residents. Any business processing personal data (collecting, recording, storing, using, etc) of EU residents are likely to be affected by the GDPR. The regulation comes into effect on May 25, 2018.
How is MalCare Preparing for GDPR?
MalCare welcomes the introduction of GDPR and is fully committed to achieving compliance with GDPR. We completely understand our obligation to our customers and we value our customers (and their customer’s) personal data rights. Here’s what we are doing:
GDPR Analysis: We have thoroughly analyzed GDPR requirements and we have put in place a dedicated internal team to drive our organization to meet those requirements.
Identifying Personal Data: We are currently in the process of identifying the different levels of personal data that is collected, stored, used and disposed. It’ll help us establish a roadmap for becoming compliant with the new regulation.
Being Visible & Achieving Transparency: In the light of the powerful role data plays in the modern day, providing visibility and transparency on how collected personal data is used is of utmost importance. Identifying the different levels of personal data will help us explore the best way in which we can achieve transparency and provide visibility to our customers.
Enhancing Data Security: We give data security great importance. We are reviewing our policies to further enhance data privacy and data security measures.
Data Portability: We are exploring ways of streamlining data exporting capabilities so as to give a helping hand to our customers who are concerned about their personal data.
Changes in the Product: We have identified a few requirements in areas of our product that will be impacted by GDPR. We have developed a strategy that’ll help implement those changes. We are in the process of implementing the required changes to our internal processes and procedures. Following that, we will verify and validate those changes.
