Are you prepared for GDPR?

Here's how Citrix ShareFile can help your business meet GDPR compliance as a technology partner.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), goes into effect on 25 May 2018 across the EU and UK, directing businesses to achieve a high level of data protection and protect citizens from privacy and data breaches. If your business isn’t ready by then, you may face heavy fines — potentially €20 million or more.

The best preparation for GDPR includes choosing secure tools to protect your data and increase compliance. Here are a few ways that Citrix ShareFile can help lead your compliance efforts:

Easy Data Registration
GDPR compliance preparation requires your business to keep a Data Register with your country’s Data Protection Association, as well as locate and classify your data. You can easily identify Personal Data stored in ShareFile with the ShareFile Data Loss Prevention (DLP) integration.

Reliable Personal Data Protections
Article 25 of GDPR requires “Data protection by design and by default.” Restrict access to Personal Data stored in ShareFile with our sharing policies, and protect it with authentication measures including 2 Step Verification and SAML integration, password policies, and more.  

Automated Record Keeping
Article 30 states GDPR requirements for “Records of processing activities.” ShareFile supports a subset of these requirements through our DLP integra-tion, which audits and tracks scanned files with Personal Data. This includes upload, download, and access activities related to personal data.

Ironclad Data Encryption
Article 32 of GDPR handles “Security of processing” requirements. All of your data stored within ShareFile, including Personal Data, is encrypted at rest. You can also use ShareFile to manage encryption keys, and further encrypt your data through Information Rights Management (IRM).  

Intelligent Access Restrictions
ShareFile makes our ShareFile EU control plane available to help support any data sovereignty requirements. We also help provide safeguards to support the transfer of Personal Data to an outside country or international organisation with Information Rights Management (IRM).
