The Right to be Forgotten

and Data Management

“The Right to be Forgotten” is a fundamental part of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  This portion of the law requires organizations, when requested by an individual, to be able to identify, retrieve, and delete any data associated with that individual. This includes within any backups or archives an organization holds.

But GDPR is not only an EU challenge.  California recently passed the California Consumer Privacy Act giving consumers greater control, ownership, and demands for security over their data collected by organizations.

These laws and similar trends are driving organization to look for ways to manage their data better to help achieve this compliance. Aparavi Active Archive℠ with data classification and full-content search wherever the data resides, helps organizations deliver on the promise of The Right to Be Forgotten.
