GDPR mandates that organizations must follow strict rules for how they collect, share, and protect personal data of citizens of the European Union. The impact of this mandate reaches beyond the EU, because most global companies located outside of the EU collect or store data for EU citizen customers. Connecting customer data across multiple systems is crucial to orchestrate today's best of breed applications and services, but this streamlined data-sharing and automation are complicated by new GDPR requirements. For example, if an EU citizen opts to delete personal data shared with a company through one application, that company must ensure that the data is also removed from all other integrated applications and systems that had access to it.
Jitterbit's enterprise iPaaS enables companies to track GDPR-sensitive data across multiple systems, by ensuring that personal data can be tracked and accounted for at all times. Because Jitterbit users can granularly select the specific records and types of data to exchange between different applications or services, and get a clear visualization of how data flows across the enterprise, Jitterbit makes it easier for companies to comply with some of the more complex GDPR requirements.
Aspects of Jitterbit Harmony platform that support GDPR compliance include:
Finally, Jitterbit has appointed Henk Adriaans and Damon Pugh to serve as data privacy officers for the EU and US, respectively. These new roles will oversee Jitterbit's company-wide and regional data storage policies and processes and respond to customers' data requests and inquiries.
