Current RMS & GDPR
Taking steps to safeguard your personal data.
GDPR is a great opportunity for businesses inside and outside of Europe to look at how they’re storing and using sensitive data and make sure they’re protecting it appropriately.
Even if you and your business are located outside the EU, if you hold any data about any organizations or contacts in the EU, you’ll need to be compliant.
What it takes to get prepared for GDPR will vary from business to business and will be dependant on your day-to-day practices. It’s important to make sure sensitive data has the correct safeguards and that you’re handling it correctly. While we can't provide specific advice on compliance for your business, we'd recommend starting by visiting the European Union's dedicated website for GDPR: EUGDPR.org.
Will Current RMS be GDPR compliant?
Being a cloud-based product, privacy is already a huge priority for us and something we take extremely seriously. Like lots of SaaS providers, we use external data hosting provider, Amazon Web Services, to host our servers. While they are based in the US, they will be fully compliant with GDPR through the use of Model Clauses. You can read more about AWS GDPR compliance here.
What is Current doing to prepare for GDPR?
We’re reviewing our internal processes on how we store our own customers’ data. Security remains a top priority of ours and we’ll be making sure that any future processes we introduce are fully compliant.
We’re ensuring services we use are GDPR compliant. This includes systems we rely on, from our software integrations, internal team communication tools, right through to our data hosting providers.
Are there any data management tools within Current?
To make it easy for all of our customers to comply with GDPR legislation, there are a number of tools within Current RMS that could help manage your own clients’ data. Just a few include:
- Data Export Functionality - export targeted data from Current using custom views, useful if an individual wishes to view or edit their personal data.
- Using Custom Fields - create custom fields in a variety of areas in Current to manage sensitive data, including recording customer consent or dates of data reviews.
- Managing User Settings - within Current, restrict additional users from viewing certain parts of the system, including hiding sensitive data from users that don’t need to see it.
