« Technology has transformed both the economy and social life, and should further facilitate the free flow of personal data within the Union and the transfer to third countries and international organisations… » excerpt from the Official Journal of the EU.
Back in May 2018, the new EU Regulation “GDPR” came into force and, from that moment on, companies, freelancers, medical practices, lawyers, tax advisors, insurance companies and public administration had to comply with this new regulation making relevant changes to their business.
Without going too far, just think that the foundation to “guarantee an adequate level of security of personal data” is “the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data” – art. 32; In the digital archive they are tools aiming at “encrypting” data and only those possessing the codes (usually complex passwords) can have access to them.
Let’s think of paper archives: our beloved folders, containing the confidential data of our customers, users and patients, are filed in locked cabinets. In this case, the data breach (both accidental and deliberate) is round the corner.
No matter if you are a business owner, the office manager, an insurance agent or a freelancer: your staff cannot simply turn a key and have access to the files. The key can get lost or fall into the wrong hands.
The electronic lock is fully compliant with the GDPR regulation: the access is authorized to a limited number of users, 3 password levels and no chances to disclose the password outside the company, just like with a digital archive.
It can be installed on any existing piece of furniture, both wooden and metal, on hinged doors, espagnolette locks, pedestals. The electronic lock makes you compliant!
