EASY wins key industry recognition for the contribution of its GDPR solution from sister EASY company, otris software AG, at the 'Storries'
Bury St Edmunds, UK – July 6th , 2016 – EASY SOFTWARE UK, Europe’s leading supplier of document management solutions, has secured important sector acknowledgement of its solution for the imminent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) pan-European data compliance standard.
As a result, customers who have not yet commenced their GDPR journey will have confidence that EASY can help them meet the May 2018 deadline for the regulation, which brings in a tough new sanction regime replacing the UK Data Protection Act (DPA).
EASY came top in the ‘GDPR Ready’ category at the June 2017 Storage Awards with its GDPR solution otris privacy from sister EASY company, otris software AG.
otris privacy is a support tool for helping organisations get ready for GDPR, offering proof of process and a way to show auditors what’s being achieved, says the company.
The software helps properly document and project manage GDPR preparedness on many fronts, from collecting data from data stakeholders to producing a snapshot of results and helping data compliance officers build a traffic light system of green (compliant), amber (questions to settle) and red (at risk on GDPR).
Howard Frear, Director of Sales and Marketing at EASY, commented: “GDPR is a huge issue for any organisation working with customer data.
“To help we offer a solution, successfully used for equally rigorous data protection laws by 400 German and Austrian organisations, to document and project manage data governance to address GDPR, which has to be prepared for.”
The Storage Awards, now in their 14th year, includes 30 categories voted for by thousands of Storage Magazine readers to reward the outstanding products, services and people in the industry.
“This brings EASY’s total number of Storries to twelve over eleven years, which is very gratifying but even more so for such an important area as GDPR,” Frear concludes.
The 2017 Storage Awards were held in London’s Grand Connaught Rooms in London’s Covent Garden on June 15, and more information about the awards can be found here. @STMagAndAwards #Storries.
