Is your master data GDPR compliant?

Blog Article Is Your Master Data GDPR Compliant

Many are unware that their business partner master data entail information of natural persons. If this data stays unrecognized, GDPR-compliant processing of that information is impossible. Simultaneously, the risk of possible fees and the possibility of damaging the company image increases.

In many cases, companies' vendor or customer master data often unnoticeably contains personal data. However, manual identification of questionable data records is not easy and requires a high level of personnel resources.

Manual work is highly time consuming and a burden on resources

  • Names containing legal forms are clear indicators of a company. But who knows all abbreviations of all legal forms worldwide?
  • Typical first and last names are clear indicators of natural persons, especially if a legal form is missing. But who knows all typical names from all countries?
  • In some countries, there is a tax number that identifies a natural person by a particular character at a particular spot. But who knows all these rules? And even if so, who has the time to manually check all business partner data?
