Security and privacy are always the critical priority for anyone managing data. The European Association has taken a bold step in ensuring the appropriate safety for each EU inhabitant, with the General Information Insurance Control or General Data Protection Regulations(GDPR) which will be enforced from May 25, 2018. The GDPR aims to give each EU inhabitant control of their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for businesses by unifying the regulation within EU. All EU inhabitants will now have a more prominent say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal information is being utilised, prepared, or arranged. Air Web Solutions is very much aware of its part in applying the correct security and privacy procedures to develop and deploy GDPR-compliant solutions well in advance of the deadline to help and support all of its clients.
Air Web Solution’s Dedication
At Air Web Solutions, we always respect our clients’ right to information security and assurance. We have never served promotions to our clients, and never will. We don’t serve advertisements even to clients utilising the free administration. This indicates that we only gather and process essential data that is required to carry out our service specific activities.
How is Air Web Solutions planning for GDPR?
Air Web Solutions understand that the GDPR will enable us to move towards the most remarkable guidelines of activities in ensuring client information, by preparing to be GDPR compliant across all of its operations when the regulation comes into effect. As an information processor, Air Web Solutions understands the commitment to enabling and preparing its clients for this. We have examined GDPR necessities and have set up a dedicated team to drive our association to meet them. Some of our progressing activities are:
Categorising individual information/data
At Air Web Solutions all personal information is collected directly from clients either via the website, or email. All customer information and data stored in applications and services are all EU GDPR compliant.
Providing visibility and transparency
A critical feature of GDPR is the way the gathered information is utilised. As an information processor, Air Web Solutions’ key action is to provide its clients (the information controllers) access to oversee and secure their information successfully. Air Web Solutions is taking different approaches to ensure services, processes, and procedures are upgraded without compromising service levels, and ensure that we can provide enhanced transparency to our clients.
Enhancing information morality and security
Information protection and information security are two sides of the same coin. As our clients confirm their information safety efforts, Air Web Solutions can assist. We are streamlining the procedures for our cloud applications by simplifying IT approaches and methodology that give end-to-end security.
Portability and transferability of information
GDPR gives clients the privilege to either gather all the information provided and handled by the controller or transfer it to another controller following standardised and secure procedures. Considering this new right, Air Web Solutions is working towards compliance as well as upgrading its information transfer solutions from a system perspective to an individual user level.
