Convercent, a provider of ethics and compliance software, announced new platform capabilities designed to help global customers achieve compliance with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements via the Convercent Ethics Cloud platform.
Convercent’s GDPR capabilities give customers of all sizes and industries a solution for not only staying compliant with GDPR, but also doing so with unmatched flexibility and control. Convercent’s new enhancements are integrated directly into the existing Ethics Cloud platform, designed to target the biggest challenges of GDPR compliance.
Specifically, GDPR introduces a right for individuals to have personal data erased. In such right-to-erasure cases, compliant organizations run the risk of losing precious historical data—context that’s critical in future analysis or investigations requiring the ability to identify patterns of behavior. With Convercent’s new features, customers can redact only the sensitive information subject to GDPR, while preserving important context and maintaining overall data fidelity.
“GDPR reform marks a dramatic shift in how businesses handle sensitive data and requires that organizations make massive adaptations to comply with this new standard in global data privacy,” said Philip Winterburn, chief product officer at Convercent. “We steadfastly believe in the power of data and the Convercent cloud software to streamline compliance programs and drive ethics to the center of business. That belief extends to the critical area of data privacy, and our new offerings will enable customers to comply without sacrificing the fidelity of their valuable data history.”
GDPR requires organizations to implement structured systems for accessing, editing, and deleting personal data. Convercent’s platform allows customers to easily track changes, control access, and manage personal data throughout the design and development of any new products or services. Finally, Convercent’s Audit Program maintains a record of redaction events, while removing any historical reference to personal information.
