Auszug aus dem Whitepaper Microsoft Dynamics NAV-GDPR

Given how much is involved, you should not wait to prepare until GDPR enforcement begins. You should review your privacy and data management practices now. The balance of this white paper is focused on how Dynamics NAV can support your compliance with the GDPR following the four steps introduced above, as well as approaches, recommended practices, and techniques to support your ongoing GDPR compliance journey.

When Dynamics NAV is installed in a partner or customer’s local environment, you, as the owner of that environment, are doing the core processing of the personal data. If we receive personal data, we will comply with the GDPR. Since you will be the primary custodian of the data that is processed with the Dynamics NAV software, the purpose of this white paper is the features and functionalities in the software that can help you comply with the GDPR.

As GDPR is an interlocking set of standards, practices, and organizational capabilities, software, alone, cannot make your organization GDPR compliant. The scope of the GDPR can have a significant impact on your business, potentially requiring you to update personal privacy policies, implement or strengthen personal data protection controls and breach notification procedures, deploy highly transparent policies, and further invest in IT and training.

Dynamics NAV can, however, help you meet your GDPR obligations. To this end, and as further described below, Microsoft is adding new features to Dynamics NAV that, when combined with existing capabilities in Dynamics NAV, will assist with GDPR compliance. The March 2018 cumulative updates, for the Microsoft-localized and W1 versions of Dynamics NAV 2015, Dynamics NAV 2016, Dynamics NAV 2017, and Dynamics NAV 2018, are the first to add new tools that can help you fulfill your GDPR obligations.

Dynamics NAV and the GDPR Journey

In this section, you will see how key features within Dynamics NAV 2018, Dynamics NAV 2017, Dynamics NAV 2016, and Dynamics NAV 2015 can be brought to bear on the important steps of your journey toward GDPR compliance – Discover, Manage, Protect, and Report. It should be noted that there are many other ways of achieving GDPR compliance, and you can customize your Dynamics NAV solution design to your exact business and solution requirements. Discover - Identify and classify personal data The ability to clearly identify where you store personal data and classify fields for personal data can help to serve as a foundation for subsequent tasks and requirements under the GDPR. In the Microsoftlocalized and W1 versions that are currently in mainstream support (Dynamics NAV 2018, Dynamics NAV 2017, Dynamics NAV 2016, and Dynamics NAV 2015), it is easy to find personal data, provided that it has been correctly classified. Using the Dynamics NAV customization capabilities, customers and partners can already now export fields and table metadata to Excel and start their data classification effort in Excel, so they can reuse that data classification once the on-premises solution has been upgraded to the Microsoft-provided cumulative update that gives you native tooling in Dynamics NAV.
