The EU General Data Protection RegulationSoftware to assist accountancy practices with GDPR compliance
Tools to help accountants comply with GDPR
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) imposes tough new requirements on the collection, use and storage of personal data, and formalises the processes around data governance. Accountants in practice are used to working with their clients’ personal data, but GDPR imposes significant new data management requirements.
Alongside your firm’s new GDPR compliant processes and controls, Thomson Reuters Onvio and Digita software can help you manage GDPR compliance in three key areas: managing and protecting sensitive client data, sharing personal data with your clients and employees, and security in the cloud.What is GDPR compliance?
How can our software help accountants manage GDPR compliance?
Personal data stored and shared in spreadsheets can pose a significant risk. Create a more secure environment with formal access controls.
Share data securely
Share, store and transfer files with our cloud-based client portal and document management systems and reduce data exchange risks.
Control data access
Restrict staff access and/or ability to change clients’ personal data with permission levels in Digita Personal Tax and Practice Management.
Audit data changes
Monitor and record whenever any sensitive data is amended or deleted and create an audit trail with controls built into both Digita and Onvio solutions.
Quickly process requests for data access and erasure, and respond to data breaches with client data storage on one main platform with Digita.
