Microsoft unveil Compliance Manager to assist in GDPR compliance
06 December 2017
With the GDPR deadline looming and companies racing to get ready, Microsoft have recently launched Compliance Manager, a new tool, to help companies meet the requirements of GDPR.
According to Microsoft’s FAQ, key features of Compliance Manager are:
- Risk assessment capabilities – can assess compliance against ISO 270001, ISO 27017, and the GDPR.
- Recommended actions – give strong insight/direction to improve data protection capabilities and compliance posture.
- Simplified compliance – organisations can streamline compliance and auditing workflow with the built-in control management and audit-ready reporting tools.
Compliance Manager may be a useful tool to ensure you meet the GDPR’s requirements, however, Microsoft have emphasised that any recommendations from Compliance Manager shouldn’t be interpreted as a guarantee of compliance. It remains paramount that companies have their own solid measures in place.
