ATS OnDemand Supports New GDPR Policies

What is the GDPR?


On May 25, 2018, the EU’s new data protection plan will go into effect. The plan, called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), requires that companies strengthen their privacy policies and data protection.

Who is affected?
The GDPR affects companies who operate within the EU. This applies to companies who are both headquartered or simply provide business services to companies in the EU.

ATS OnDemand is fully compliant to meet these deadlines and support your company in its continued EU business functions.


What is new?

There are some key highlights that separate the new GDPR from the past 1995 EU Privacy Directive.


Implementation of new regulation and security obligations

Data governance requirements, including policies, procedures and defined roles

Strict timelines regarding data breach notifications
