Comply with GDPR

Practical steps for compliance
across the enterprise.

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect May 25, 2018, providing enhanced protection for the personal data of European consumers. The regulation affects all businesses that acquire, store or process the personal data of individuals in the EU—including businesses that are based outside the EU. The cost of non-compliance could be high, with fines of up to €20 million, or 4 percent of a company's global revenue.1

Although GDPR compliance poses challenges, it’s an opportunity for you and your organization to take a holistic, intelligent, and automated approach to governance and compliance to deliver data that is trusted, secured, and governed. This approach to data helps you stay competitive and agile as new governance and compliance needs arise for better business outcomes.


GDPR action plan: Partner with Informatica for GDPR compliance

Informatica’s Data Governance & Compliance solution for GDPR helps you engage with key functions across business, IT, and data security to govern all types of data—cloud, on-premises, and big data—for GDPR compliance efforts. Our solution helps you on your path to compliance by identifying, defining, governing, and mastering data.

Identify & assess data—What needs protection

For GDPR, the first step is to understand the location, volume, and risk of personal data that exists across your company. Personal data discovery and risk analysis are needed across a wide range of technology solutions. Informatica Secure@Source delivers immediate access to this information through visualizations and mapping of regulated data to detect your potential risk. Secure@Source helps you quickly spot, monitor, and protect personal data across all data types, including structured and unstructured data, for GDPR compliance efforts.


Define & govern data—Take a holistic approach

To govern your data effectively, you need to take a holistic approach across your organization by bringing together a business and IT view of data. Informatica Axon Data Governance, enables business and IT functions to work together. It helps you define policies, identify stakeholders, and link data insights together to govern in-scope data for GDPR compliance efforts. You can assess where you are today, implement policies, and measure results. Documentation is not enough. It’s important to implement and track progress to be successful.

Control & purge data—Prevent unauthorized access

Many different individuals across an organization and its ecosystem might have excessive access to data. Informatica Data Masking can control access of personal data based on role and location. It also pseudonymizes data. In addition, with Informatica Data Archiving, you can purge data as requested by a data subject or when otherwise required by law.


Manage and master data—Get a 360-degree view

For GDPR compliance efforts, and particularly for enacting rights, you need to quickly identify all the data you hold about a data subject, regardless of location or system. Informatica Master Data Management (MDM) provides an immediate, 360-degree view of personal data. This helps you associate, consolidate, and manage consents granted by individual data subjects efficiently and effectively. Since personal data is centrally managed from a single location linked with your applications, subject rights processing can be applied in a consistent, efficient way.
