ClearDATA, a security and compliance managed services provider for healthcare organizations in the public cloud, announced new features for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance. The dashboard functionality and reporting capabilities ensure its clients have a constant view into their compliance with the European Union’s GDPR, which is set to go into effect May 25.
Over the last 12 months, IT and compliance professionals inside U.S. healthcare companies have been increasingly alarmed by the impact of GDPR’s reach that can even apply to healthcare organizations based in the U.S. ClearDATA has alerted its customers to take measures to adopt the new GDPR compliance features if any one of the following four conditions apply:
- An organization processes personal data of EU individuals.
- An organization is established in the EU.
- An organization is established outside the EU and processes data for goods and services offered in the EU.
- An organization monitors the behavior of EU individuals.
Non-compliance with GDPR should not to be taken lightly. Infractions can cost the non-compliant organization up to four percent of their gross global annual income or €20 million, whichever is greater.
