GDPR represents the biggest shake up of data protection law in over 20 years. It will have a massive effect on organisations and will introduce greater regulation, control and governance over personal data. The new data protection rules will create a harmonised framework and present a multitude of new compliance obligations around new consent rules, enhanced privacy rights of individuals, demands for privacy impact assessments to understand risk, and ‘privacy by design’ for all business operations and processes. New obligations for data transparency will also be introduced for confidentially breaches and new rights against the use of personal data with the right to be forgotten and data portability. As a result, we face far stricter rules for capturing, storing, processing and managing data.

Data breaches will be costly! Preparation to comply with GDPR needs to start now. Consequences of mishandling personal data will potentially lead to non-complying organisations facing fines of up to 4 percent of their global annual turnover or €20 million, whichever is higher. Even though this regulation becomes effective in May 2018, requirements and practices to protect sensitive data are already defined, and they bring big challenges - making it even more crucial for organisations to get their SAP landscape in order now.

Your SAP systems hold personal data! 

However, 86% of SAP users don't fully understand the implications of GDPR in relation to their current SAP landscape and future use of SAP! All systems such as SAP ERP, Business Intelligence, CRM, HCM and other SAP applications need to be included in your GDPR preparation project. In order to comply, you will need a focused approach to managing, owning and processing data.

Establishing a Governance Framework - How SAP GRC accelerate GDPR readiness
For SAP ERP customers.
If your business runs SAP, then it’s likely to hold a large amount of information that could be considered personal data, which means it will be critical to ensure SAP remains fully secure and compliant. While this can be a major challenge, the tools that exist with SAP’s GRC suite can automate many of the processes involved and help accelerate your organisation’s GDPR readiness.

Managing the Information Lifecycle
For SAP ERP customers. 
Correctly implemented data retention is a key tenet of the GDPR. Identifying the personal data that you hold is not enough, you need to be able to provide evidence that you are able to manage personal data throughout its entire lifecycle. This means being able to block, archive and ultimately delete personal data held within your systems. This webinar will outline the available solutions both essential and optional for effectively managing the SAP Information Lifecycle.

Monitoring GDPR Risk with SAP Information Steward
For SAP BI customers.
Discover how SAP BusinessObjects customers can create business rules, policies and information governance processes that help define data ownership in accordance with GDPR. We’ll introduce SAP Information Steward and explain how an organisation can gain insight into how PII data is processed within their DWH and SAP BI systems. Additionally, with a live demonstration, we’ll show you how to profile data & metadata, set up business rules, identify data lineage and build dashboards/reports to monitor GDPR related activities.

Implementing Effective Data Mapping
For SAP customers - ERP & BI.
The first step in minimising your risk of GDPR exposure is to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the personal data that exists within your SAP systems, be that ERP, BI or anything else. In this webinar we will introduce our accelerated data discovery, mapping and cataloguing approach that can help you with the challenge of GDPR.

GDPR is important with huge implications. In the context of a wider data management and information lifecycle management strategy, we can highlight the practical steps you can take now to minimise the risk in your SAP systems. No single solution can address all of GDPR’s requirements but there are specialised SAP solutions that can present a comprehensive platform to managing risk within SAP and non-SAP systems.

SAP Information Lifecycle Management

You need to be able to provide evidence that you are able to manage personal data throughout its entire lifecycle. A key requirement of GDPR is the ‘right to be forgotten’ and data portability involving the identification, blocking, deletion and archival of sensitive data. 

SAP Information Lifecycle Management (SAP ILM) is the only solution for managing this process and presents the only way possible to delete data in SAP applications.

SAP ILM will not only solve some of your GDPR challenges, but the solution is a perfect data archiving tool for SAP ERP. SAP customers can securely move data to longer term, less expensive storage but maintain access to archived data in a compliant manner.
