Get ready for GDPR

How Bluebird's Managed File Transfer solutions can help

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is introduced into the UK on 27 April 2016 and by 25 May 2018 all organisations that hold, process or move personal data of any EU citizen will have to comply or face severe penalties.

There is no single solution to GDPR compliance. Many of its concepts and principles involve either human processes ("maintain a policy") or guiding principles ("develop secure applications"). However, Bluebird Managed File Transfer solutions can take away a lot of the burden of technology compliance in the following way: 

  • Protects the personal data (privacy) itself
  • Secures data in transit
  • Avoids unauthorised processing of data
  • Restricts access to personal data on a business need-to-know basis
  • Assigns a unique ID to give restricted user access to systems
  • Maintains a record of processing to give visibility and audit-ability of all transactions/ data transfers
