M-Files Partners With IT Governance To Equip Organizations With A Process-Centric Approach For Achieving GDPR Compliance

Combined Solution Delivers Templates and Best Practice Controls Designed to Simplify GDPR Compliance Projects

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) - M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced a partnership with IT Governance, a provider of IT governance, risk management and compliance solutions, to deliver a framework that helps organizations comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

GDPR requires organizations to have clear policies and procedures in place to protect the personal data of EU residents as well as adopt appropriate technical and organizational measures. Set to go into effect in May 2018, organizations that process the personal data of EU residents have a limited amount of time to ensure they are compliant. Organizations found to be in breach of GDPR can face fines of up to four percent of their annual global turnover or €20 million – whichever is greater.

M-Files is offering IT Governance’s GDPR Documentation Toolkit as part of the company's intelligent information management solution to help organizations manage the critical documents and processes required for their GDPR compliance projects. Consisting of document templates required for GDPR compliance, process controls and supporting best practices, this partnership will provide organizations with a system capable of driving compliance and facilitating related documentation.

"A critical aspect of GDPR compliance is that a company can quickly and easily demonstrate that they've taken steps towards meeting the requirements of the regulation," says Janne Järvenoja, head of legal affairs at M-Files Corporation. "Partnering with IT Governance not only enables us to provide organizations with a solution that serves as the foundation for GDPR compliance, it also enables organizations to verify that they are indeed taking appropriate actions when audits or breaches occur."

"IT Governance and M-Files have vast experience working with organizations that have demanding compliance requirements," says Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman at IT Governance. "As a result, we're able to provide a compliance framework that enables organizations to develop suitable policies and to manage and implement processes, building a strong data security posture and achieve compliance with the regulation."
