GDPR Compliance for Email

Your Email and the EU GDPR. This changes everything.

The Challenge

Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), all organizations – whether within or outside the EU – need to obtain EU residents’ consent to store or process their personal data, maintain “Privacy by Design,” and respond quickly to their “subject access” and “right to be forgotten” requests. With GDPR enforcement set for May 2018, this can pose significant new burdens on organizations of all sizes.

By its very nature, all email contains personal data, and is especially vulnerable to cybercriminal exploits. Fortunately, architecting a security, privacy, and governance solution for email can be fast and simple with Mimecast, and a natural first step for bringing your organization into alignment with GDPR requirements.
