The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline is 2 months away. If you haven't educated yourself or begun to prepare your organization for compliance, there’s no time to waste. In a recent webinar, Pragmatic Works Software Engineer, Philip de la Cal, not only discusses what the GDPR is and the importance of preparation, but also runs through some deep dive demos highlighting time-saving techniques within the Pragmatic Workbench that can protect your servers, databases, and tables.
In case you live under a rock and don’t know what GDPR is, GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy laws for all individuals within the European Union (EU). So, you may be thinking, ok, I’m not in Europe, so not my concern. GDPR applies to ALL companies worldwide who work with personal data or EU citizens. If you have business or clients in the EU, then it is your concern–GDPR concerns us all.
Some things to know:
In his demo, Philip shares time-saving techniques using the Pragmatic Workbench that protect your servers, databases and tables, as well as provide the privacy that people deserve. He shows ways to apply filters and flags to your metadata, how to navigate through your metadata to see how it’s connected, as well as ways to test the data itself.
With GDPR, it’s imperative that DBAs and BI Developers understand their environments, but, more importantly, they must be able to show where data begins, what it collects and where it is deposited. Pragmatic Workbench is an application that contains features of four Pragmatic Works’ products; BI xPress, DBA xPress, DOC xPress and LegiTest, and will help you do all these tasks and get your GDPR compliance plan in place.
Time is ticking—visit our website for a free trial of Pragmatic Workbench today.
