What is the GDPR?

Starting May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect and will cover the entirety of the European Union. The GDPR brings uniformity among all the countries in the EU with respect to data privacy and security.

Mindmatrix and the GDPR

At Mindmatrix, we have always taken the greatest care to ensure the security and privacy of the data of our clients and vendors. While we already adhere to the data security, privacy and safety regulations across the US and Canada, we are now working to ensure Mindmatrix is, as a data processor, compliant with the GDPR before the deadline of 25th May, 2018.

We have formed a team for GDPR compliance that is responsible for determining the requirements of the regulation that are applicable to Mindmatrix and to any of our customers. This team ensures we stay updated with any new developments related to GDPR that concern us as a processor. This team is also responsible for assessing and auditing our software design, security, functionalities and identifying any vulnerabilities that need to be resolved to ensure compliance.

As a data processor, we know that it is our responsibility to ensure our clients are able to comply with the GDPR consent regulations when they use our platform. Our channel and sales enablement software has all the features required to ensure this is possible. Examples include

  • Role-based access and permission to the platform and data therein
  • Asset approval and expiration functionality
  • Data encryption
  • Solid asset management module
