What is GDPR and how is it related to SAP
The European Commissions’ regulation for data protection (GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation) in the EU shall come into effect on 25 May 2018. In accordance with the new GDPR, a data protection breach is a result of an employee getting access to data, which is not appropriate for occupational duties. SAP systems contain all the mission-critical data including personal data such as names, SSNs, addresses. As GDPR prescribes this data must be protected. Companies must follow GDPR regulations to ensure Personally Identifiable Information (PII) stored in their systems is secured.
