In the framework of the Inca standardisation committee, we are collaborating on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation will replace the Swedish Personal Data Act (PuL). Much in the Data Protection Regulation is similar to the content of the Personal Data Act but there are also some important technology and organisational changes required to be adapted to comply with the new rules in the Regulation. Therefore, Itello has created a specific customer forum to discuss changes in order to reach consensus and develop Itello’s standard solutions to meet the new requirements.
The new requirements will be met in our Policy Administration System Inca by:
– Finding common ground in which interpretations of the regulations are the same.
– Finding areas and cases where interpretations of the regulations are different
– An effort finding a consensus where differences can be minimised
– Discussions of possible solutions in situations where differences exist.
Itellos’ standardisation committee is a product forum where the main purpose is to find and agree on standardised solutions within selected priority areas.
The General Data Protection Regulation is a regulatory framework that affects all organisations, not just the software products from Itello. For this reason, there has been a need to look at the whole picture, including our software products as well as our customer organisations in the collaborative project with the aim of ensuring compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation’s requirements.
Itello will deliver the systematic support required to meet the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation on the information processed by Inca well in advance. Already in January 2018, our customers will be able to take advantage of the first delivery – Program Increment 1 of Inca 18.1. Scheduled release date for production of Inca 18.1 is in April 2018.
Overall transparency about ongoing work and a dialogue on solution ideas and documentation has provided a good foundation for setting the direction and developing a sustainable and long-term solution for personal privacy.
