GDPR & Databases

The impacts of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on an organisation will vary according to the nature and granularity of data that is being collected and held, but for organisations that are impacted then good database design, data integrity, the ability to generate reports and access security will be of paramount importance.

If you use an Act! database and would like this customised to meet the requirements of GDPR then we can assist using our many years of experience in database design for industries and organisations across all business sectors.

We have GDPR Foundation certified resources to assist you in ensuring your Act! database is compliant.

We have a small GDPR article on our blog here

Our ‘GDPR & Act! Compliance‘ infographic highlights a number of aspects that Act! database owners may wish to consider when looking at GDPR compliance is their businesses – these aspects may well be valid for other systems it can be downloaded here. 

In addition, Act! have published two GDPR guides – one for existing Act! users and one for new Act! users.
