Prior to GDPR, the last time the European Union introduced legislation regarding data handling and protection was in 1995 with the EU Data Protection Directive.
Fast forward twenty years and the technological landscape has changed: we live and work in a more connected world, with the advent of social media, mobile devices, and cloud computing.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new set of data protection legislation, designed to make data handling laws across the European Union more up-to-date. It came into force on May 25th 2018.
What does GDPR mean for my business?
How your business handles GDPR depends on the kind of data you gather on your customers, as well as how you collect and store it.
We can't provide specific advice on compliance for your business, but we'd recommend starting by visiting the European Union's dedicated website for GDPR: EUGDPR.org, as well as checking out resources on websites that you trust.
Current RMS and GDPR
Both the Current RMS software/service and Current-RMS Ltd are compliant with GDPR.
We designed Current RMS with security and data privacy in mind. Like many of your favorite tech companies, our platform is hosted on Amazon Web Services who are fully compliant with GDPR.
Tools in Current RMS
Legal basis for processing data
To help you better process personal data lawfully, we’ve added a new “Legal basis for processing data” drop-down to People & Organizations so you can document this properly.
For information on the legal basis for processing data, see the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website. Remember the ICO is a UK authority so check local resources, too.
In People & Organizations, you can now delete an organization that was associated with an invoice, opportunity, or other record in Current.
Associated records are not deleted for record-keeping, but we anonymize all identifying information. For example, an organization might become “Deleted Organization #395” across the system.
Single Sign On (SSO) and Two Factor Authentication (2FA)
Bolster your Current RMS login security by using:
Head to System Setup > Actions Log to review a system-wide overview of user actions in your System.
Export a variety of data in System Setup > Export Data, including discussions.
Use Roles to restrict what particular users can see and do in your Current RMS system.
Remember non-admin users do not have access to System Setup, so cannot export data en masse from System Setup > Export Data.
In addition to EUGDPR.org, our integration partners have some great articles on GDPR that you might like to check out:
