How Smoothwall's UTM & SWG products allow you to comply with GDPR

As many of you will already be aware, the General Data Protection Regulation is a set of guidelines that will replace the current UK Data Protection Act 1998.

This new legislation gives consumers more say on how companies use their data and introduces tougher fines for companies that do not comply. The regulation applies to any organisation that collects personal data from EU citizens, and unifies rules surrounding data protection throughout the EU.

Personal data doesn’t just include written information, it also encompasses photos, social media names and posts, and IP addresses. Organisations have until 25th May 2018 to prepare their data and ensure they comply with the new laws.

We understand that by now as an organisation you'll know what GDPR means for you. However, in order to assist you in your transition, we have produced a whitepaper that outlines how Smoothwall's UTM and SWG products allow you to comply with the legislation. 

The paper explores the following sections in full:

  • The legal basis for the processing of personal data by Smoothwall’s UTM/SWG under GDPR
  • How consent is managed, including consent for children
  • Smoothwall’s UTM and SWG products in relation to the 8 individual rights
  • A full glossary explaining terminology and the conditions for processing
