Isn’t Microsoft Dynamics 365 GDPR compliant by default?
Well… yes and no. Even though Microsoft announced that all of their cloud offerings will be GDPR compliant, and you can find all information on their dedicated Trust Center pages, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your business running on these platforms is GDPR compliant.
Luckily, Microsoft handles a lot of stuff for you. It helps you with tasks like assessing and managing compliance risk, getting actionable insights through their Compliance Manager centralized dashboard and many more GDPR areas. However, there will always be some business-specific scenario’s which you’ll need to handle yourself.
So what should we do?
Practically speaking, you will need to ensure that you can offer the following:
- Respond to your customer’s information inquiries.
- Implement the ‘Right to be forgotten’.
- Providing an Audit Trail.
- Gather an explicit opt-in from your customer.
