The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will set a new standard for how companies use and protect EU citizens’ data. It will take effect from May 2018.
At TeamMood, we’ve been working hard to prepare for GDPR, to ensure that we fulfil its obligations and maintain our transparency about customer messaging and how we use data.
Here’s an overview of GDPR, and how we are preparing for it at TeamMood:
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a new comprehensive data protection law that comes into effect on May 25, 2018. It will replace existing EU Data Protection law to strengthen the protection of “personal data” and the rights of the individual. It will be a single set of rules which govern the processing and monitoring of EU data.
How is TeamMood preparing for GDPR?
We have been working to define our GDPR roadmap. This is a massive overhaul of processes and data models to make sure we’re meeting our legal obligations, and doing the best thing for our customers while still letting us move fast, scale and build great products.
Here are the main things we’ve been doing to ensure we’re setting up ourselves and our customers up to meet GDPR obligations:
We’re building new features
We are building the necessary features that will enable our customers to easily and fully delete all data linked to an individual user.
We’re also building a feature to allow easy export of all data linked to an individual end user. These features will be released in early 2018.
We’re coordinating with our vendors
We’re reviewing all our vendors, finding out about their GDPR plans and arranging similar GDPR-ready data processing agreements with them.
We’re taking new security measures
Security is a priority for us. We have regular external audits and pentests. Findings from each assessment are reviewed with the assessors, risk ranked and fixed according to the impact.
We’ll keep sharing information on our progress.
Feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about GDPR - we’d be happy to talk to you about it.
