Data protection becomes a mainstream topic of business conversation

Art. 29 WP, DSGVO, Header

Microsoft has introduced an expanded settings menu in Windows 10 that gives users installing the software more information on data privacy. However, the EU’s Article 29 Working Party wonders if the changes include enough disclosures to customers. The WP29 has asked for more explanation of Microsoft’s processing strategy of personal data for various purposes, including advertising.

Less than 15 months left before the new GDPR comes into force, Microsoft also announced this week its promise to be compliant with the GDPR across all cloud services by the May 2018 deadline. Brendon Lynch stated that Microsoft is committed to principles of cloud trust, privacy, transparency and compliance. He also added that, while Microsoft is committed to “helping you successfully comply with the GDPR, it is important to recognize that compliance is a shared responsibility.“ Lynch also acknowledged that the regulation’s new requirements will include greater access and deletion rules, clear risk assessment and data breach notification procedures, as well as data protection officer roles for many organizations.
