Roadmap: tools for GDPR compliance – Make WordPress Core

These tools will help site owners comply with the GDPR and other privacy laws and requirements. The site owners are able to select an existing page or create a new one. Core will also contain text that the site owners can use to create their policies. III. Add tools to core to facilitate compliance, and privacy in general. 

There are several plugins that are implementing similar tools. It would be great if the plugin authors participate/contribute to core to include the base tools, so we don’t double the efforts. These tools will require a confirmation of the email of the person that requests an action, see #43443. To export all personal data stored on the site, see #43438, #43440, #43547, #43547. Couple of tasks can be performed in core without additional tools. 

Having a specialized tools will enable plugins to hook into the performed actions and do their share. IV. Add documentation/help for site owners on how to use these tools. The documentation should be on the new Tools => Privacy screen.

Qualtrics

Safe + Secure Nothing matters more to us than the security of your data. For over a decade now, Qualtrics has been the most secure platform on the market – and we’re staying that way. When the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation come into force, we’ve got you covered. As part of those programs, a Privacy Impact Assessment – a key requirement of GDPR – has been performed and evaluated by an independent third-party assessor, so you can be confident your data is secure. Qualtrics has a Data Protection Impact Assessment that documents our handing of all your data, including personal data. 

Data correction Brand administrators can easily find and modify collected personal data to meet the ‘correction’ requirement of the GDPR. So, you’ll easily be able to modify an individual’s personal data should they request it. Right to be forgotten Brand administrators can permanently delete individual contacts and respondent personal data should an individual request it using a Subject Access Request.

Snow GDPR Risk Assessment

Out-of-the-box reports cover common use cases, plus powerful data export functionality enables customisable reporting for answering questions to scenarios specific to each organization. Having discovery agents on 80% of an estate means 20% are potentially the greatest risk. An agentless scan can be a fast and effective way to fill the gaps in asset knowledge of devices and software. It is not good enough to know just software inventory. Knowing who has access to key software applications and data and who actually uses key applications will enable the tracing of users in the event of a security breach. 

A large proportion of security breaches are internal, either deliberate or through negligence. Deploying Snow’s GDPR solution will help identify who is responsible for a data breach and in some cases, enable preventative measures. Remain up to date with dynamic application intelligence. Snow’s Data Intelligence Service provides continuous updates and improvements on GDPR-relevant information.

GDPR

Protecting and defending user privacy is at the heart of our work. From protecting user anonymity, to offering meaningful privacy and security controls, and our overall commitment to transparency, these are foundational principles and built into the core DNA of our company. We also partner with civil society, we stand up to governments and we continue to evolve our efforts around documenting our work. In preparing for GDPR, we formed a cross-functional team, made up of senior team members from across Twitter to make sure we are not only working towards GDPR compliance as an end in itself, but in a way that evolves our principles and overarching mission as a company. While our teams have been working on this behind the scenes, as the implementation date for the GDPR approaches, we will be making updates across our core product, policy, and operations. 

Our goal, as ever, is to meet our commitments to our users and to provide an industry-leading level of transparency and user control.

Permission is everything

We manage data, risk and marketing for some of the UK’s biggest brands and financial institutions. From our unique perspective, we believe you will need to earn permission on three levels: data, brand and channel. If you hold data, you’ll need new levels of rigour and compliance. Review and audit data structures and identify personal data. Assess data quality to build a solid foundation for GDPR compliance and marketing activity. 

Create a single, consistent view of your data subjects. Brands must build trust and loyalty to retain existing customers and the permission to carry on the conversation with your audience. Channel and communications value audit and strategic recommendations. CRM strategies: 1:1 communications and programme design and application. Contextualising media strategies against new legislation. 

Connecting customer data across online and offline channels to create a single customer view. Conducting channel value audits and attribution application.

General Data Protection Regulation and Episerver

The GDPR will come into effect on May 25, 2018, replacing the current Data Protection Act in the biggest overhaul of data protection legislation in more than 25 years. The law will introduce new requirements for how organizations, both in the EU and abroad, process personal data. Companies collecting data on citizens of EU countries will need to adhere to strict new rules regarding the protection of customer data. The GDPR defines its requirements and rights granted to EU citizens in a document containing 99 articles. While companies collecting and storing customer data from citizens in the EU will need to address each of the articles to achieve compliance, some of the articles will have a greater impact on businesses than others. 

Instead, you should choose to see GDPR as an opportunity, as it levels the playing field for everybody, and the benefits will include better interactions, with the right message to the right people at the right time.

GDPR News Center News for 04-11-2018

GDPR: What Americans Need to Know

The General Data Protection Regulation will be the global law of the land starting on May 25, 2018. The GDPR requires any company that does business with European Union-based residents to maintain strict data protection protocols. The processes for collecting data must be relevant to how the data will be used by the company. Companies should be willing and able to explain exactly what data has been collected and why. Security practices must demonstrate a clear ability to safeguard against loss, damage, and destruction, and data should not be held longer than is necessary. A few issues include abstractly written rules for why data is being collected, overreaching requirements for scrubbing customer data when requested, and the need for some companies to totally revamp security procedures solely for the purpose of ensuring compliance. Under the bylaws, EU citizen data must be protected and you must provide the citizen with said data if he or she requests it. You may be required to purge that data from your systems if and when the citizen makes the request. The law instead focuses on personally identifiable information and where the person associated with the data resides. If your company is hit by a massive cyberattack on May 26, 2018, then you can’t claim “Insufficient time” as an excuse for divulging EU citizen data. “You can be asked to show your journey into compliance already. Have you inventoried? What’s your protocol for an EU citizen to ask about your data? These companies can be asked for this information right now. They will start to be fined next year if they can’t demonstrate compliance after May.”. This person, whom the GDPR law dubs the “Data Protection Officer,” will be the point person responsible for walking the GDPR oversight team through the ways in which your company has been securing its data. You’ll need to verify employee identities and institute multi-factor authentication when accessing PII and for transactions that include PII data. You’ll need to cut out any practices that access or process data for unauthorized purposes, constantly monitor and verify data to ensure relevance, and completely and irreversibly purge customer data when asked to do so. Finally, if your organization’s data is breached, then you’ll need to notify your associated GDPR supervisor immediately to describe the breach and its consequences in full.

Moodle’s GDPR approach and plan

Here we outline Moodle’s approach and plan for the implementation of support for the EU General Data Protection Regulation. Earlier this year we reached out to the community through our forums and social media to gauge the needs of different organisations on how they would need to comply with GDPR. We received direct input from a number of Moodle institutions, our Moodle Partner network and developers. During the summer we put together an initial plan on what developments are needed to enable organisations using Moodle to comply with GDPR and then sought more feedback. We have also engaged a specialist lawyer from Europe on a consultancy basis who has a strong background in data protection and data privacy to examine the specifications and make recommendations on where they can be improved to better enable organisations to be GDPR compliant. We now have a plan to meet those needs and are scheduling the development within our Open Source team under the lead of Sander Bangma, our new Open Source coordinator. The PlanWe have a set of features now in development which will meet those compliance needs covering the following areas: onboarding of new users, privacy statements, the tracking of consent and handling of subject access requests. Listing and requesting consent for all 3rd-parties who may receive user data. A request to erase all identifiable user data on Moodle. We will be releasing these plugins, scheduled for March 2018, which will enable those using Moodle 3.3 and 3.4 to become compliant with the new regulations by installing and configuring the plugins in addition to implementing the required organisational procedures and processes. These features will then become part of Moodle 3.5 release which is a Long Term Supported version of Moodle. If you are not on Moodle 3.3 or above we recommend you upgrade before the end of February 2018. We are currently reviewing in what form we will offer a solution for Moodle 3.2 and below. If you are on Moodle 3.3 or above you should make sure that you update to the most recent version of these releases. Installing the plugins alone is not going to be enough to meet the GDPR requirements. Correct configuration and implementation of the required processes and procedures is also required and you should engage with your IT and legal department on what is required.
