Everyone who controls or processes data knows:  GDPR is coming! GDPR is the European Union General Data Protection Regulation and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

Enforcement date: 25 May 2018 - at which time those organizations in non-compliance may face heavy fines. Under GDPR organizations in breach of GDPR can be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater).  This is the maximum fine that can be imposed for the most serious infringements.  Is there a reason to panic?  Absolutely not!

At NORRIQ, we are not aiming to be a GDPR-evangelist.  As your data processor, we are committed to our responsibility.  We, as processor, we see it as our duty to inform you, as controller, about GDPR and the role of NORRIQ regarding this obligatory regulation.  Good preparation will set you on the right track.  At NORRIQ we have taken the necessary actions to assist you.  Are you ready?

Securely process data: anonymise your data 

De The EU GDPR prescribes companies to optimally secure their personal data.  Know that you are the controller.  At NORRIQ we often store your data to provide optimal support and service.  To guarantee an optimal continuation of our support and services, after 25 May 2018, we offer you a solution to anonymize personal data. By doing this NORRIQ can quickly be at your disposal should you request any changes to your Microsoft CRM or ERP business solutions. It remains up to you to choose the extent of the help you require but let’s make sure we are ready when you need us.  

You can choose between a standard or a customized anonymization depending on your needs. Please be informed that, from 25 May 2018 onwards, NORRIQ will be obliged to remove all non-anonymized data from its servers.




Be ready for GDPR: take extra security measures

You would like to take extra precautions?

Please make an appointment with our NORRIQ consultants for a data security check-up on your Microsoft CRM and ERP business solutions.  We will explore how and where extra security precautions can be taken, both internally and externally.  We can limit or remove data export privileges and adjust security roles and user access where necessary.

These extra security measures will help you be more in line with GDPR legislation.
