There has been a lot of discussion regarding European Union’s General Data Protection regulation, or GDPR that went into effect on 5/25.
Microsoft has a long-standing commitment to privacy and was the first cloud provider to achieve certification for the EU Model Clauses and ISO/IEC 27018, and was the first to contractually commit to the requirements of the GDPR. Azure offers 11 privacy-focused compliance offerings, more than any other cloud provider. We are proud to be the first to offer customers this level of GDPR functionality.
Through the GDPR, Azure has strengthened its commitment to be first among cloud providers in providing a trusted, private, secure, and compliant private cloud. We are continuing to build and release new features, tools, and supporting materials for our customers to comply with the GDPR and other important standards and regulations. We are proud to release these new capabilities and invite you to learn more in the Azure portal today.
New offerings include the general availability of the Azure GDPR Data Subject Request (DSR) portal, Azure Policy, Compliance Manager for GDPR, Data Log Export, and the Azure Security and Compliance Blueprint for GDPR.
