The Right to be Forgotten and Data Management
“The Right to be Forgotten” is a fundamental part of new data privacy laws being put into place, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) and California’s Consumer Privacy Act.This portion of these laws require 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.
Many people think this is a trend that will only expand, and there is speculation that the US Congress will pass similar laws in the near future.
These laws and similar trends are driving organization to look for ways to manage their data better to help achieve this compliance. Aparavi’s data classification and full-content search wherever the data resides helps organizations deliver on the promise of The Right to Be Forgotten.
