Achieving GDPR compliance in the cloud with Microsoft Azure

Community Manager

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) officially goes into effect on May 25. Will your organization be ready?


Very soon, the GDPR will replace the Data Protection Directive as the new global standard on data privacy for all government agencies and organizations that do business with European Union (EU) citizens. When it does, all organizations that control, maintain, or process information involving EU citizens will be required to comply with strict new rules regarding the protection of personal customer data. For companies that store and manage data in the cloud, assuming existing infrastructure will remain compliant with new regulatory requirements might result in significant fines.


We’ve turned our experience and insight into a free, four-part video series, Countdown: Preparing for GDPR. Be sure to watch GDPR and Azure to learn more from David Burt, Senior Compliance Marketing Manager for Azure. You can also read more about our point of view on this transition as the first hyper-scale cloud vendor to offer GDPR terms and conditions in the enterprise space.
