Combined Solution Delivers Templates and Best Practice Controls Designed to Simplify GDPR Compliance Projects

M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, has announced a partnership with IT Governance, a provider of IT governance, risk management and compliance solutions, to deliver a framework that helps organisations comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

GDPR requires organisations to have clear policies and procedures in place to protect the personal data of EU residents as well as adopt appropriate technical and organisational measures. Set to go into effect in May 2018, organisations that process the personal data of EU residents have a limited amount of time to ensure they are compliant. Organisations found to be in breach of GDPR can face fines of up to four percent of their annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

M-Files is offering IT Governance’s GDPR Documentation Toolkit as part of the company’s intelligent information management solution to help organisations manage the critical documents and processes required for their GDPR compliance projects. Consisting of document templates required for GDPR compliance, process controls and supporting best practices, this partnership will provide organisations with a system capable of driving compliance and facilitating related documentation.

“A critical aspect of GDPR compliance is that a company can quickly and easily demonstrate that they’ve taken steps towards meeting the requirements of the regulation,” says Janne Järvenoja, head of legal affairs at M-Files Corporation. “Partnering with IT Governance not only enables us to provide organisations with a solution that serves as the foundation for GDPR compliance, it also enables organisations to verify that they are indeed taking appropriate actions when audits or breaches occur.”

“IT Governance and M-Files have vast experience working with organisations that have demanding compliance requirements,” says Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman at IT Governance. “As a result, we’re able to provide a compliance framework that enables organisations to develop suitable policies and to manage and implement processes, building a strong data security posture and achieve compliance with the regulation.”
