Discover data security policy and GDPR compliance regulations

Workflow automation has indisputably hit the global market helping small, medium and large companies enhance their business processes. However, despite so many advantages, the issues of privacy, security and compliance still make businesses be very careful and selective of the automation software they choose to use.

What is privacy and security policy?

When it comes to cooperation between businesses and their customers, it’s very important to guarantee the protection of personal data. A company’s Privacy Policy and Security Policy ensure customers that their personal information as well as information from their documents and cookies are protected and will not be disclosed to third parties.

Here are types of information collected from customers:
  1. What can you automate?
  2. What is your budget for acquiring and implementing business automation software?
  3. Which of your teams will/would benefit from digital workflows?
  4. How quickly do you need the software implemented?
  5. How flexible should the system be and what level of security do you need?
  6. What is your budget for the maintenance and support needed to keep the software running correctly?

Basically, private and security policy is a detailed explanation for the customers on what kind of information is collected, how it’s done, where it’s stored and whether third parties have access to it or not. This kind of information helps the customer choose among the variety of automation software.

What is GDPR and what are GDPR regulations?

Apart from the internal privacy policy, there are specific standards for reporting and compliance that help strengthen information security in companies. The most modern data protection regulation both in the USA and Europe is General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Let’s have a short GDPR overview. It’s been one of the most comprehensive standards since 2018 in the field of data protection and information security. The GDPR meaning shouldn’t be ignored as it covers a huge list of security-related issues. The GDPR privacy policy is applicable mainly by companies inside the EU that work with personal data and companies outside the EU that monitor the behavior of individuals in the EU. This regulation is important for businesses that seek to be GDPR-compliant.

Other security and standards regulations among different industries include:
  1. System and Organization Control (SOC).
  2. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  3. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
  4. HIPAA.

How to esign documents securely?

Going digital is not only about enhancing workflows, but also about using e-signatures daily as a common practice. There are legal regulations that cover e-signatures specifically: ENSIGN for the USA and eIDAS for the EU. Both of them are considered to be best practices. To esign online, most compliant companies offer you different ways to authorize: via name, email or telephone number. Keep in mind that names and initials can’t be an e-signature.

Does airSlate meet GDPR requirements?

airSlate, as one of the most robust and popular automation software solutions, uses advanced tools for data security. Out of all the data above for processing, airSlate doesn’t require banking or geo-location information. However, geolocation can sometimes be revealed by the IP address. airSlate ensures security by offering its clients a disclosure agreement. In this agreement, the client learns how the software processes information and agrees to it by signing. airSlate stores the documents on its own servers. Once the documents are deleted they can’t be restored. So if customers hesitate on whether they will need a document in the future, it’s better to archive it. You can also safely esign documents. Regarding different legal standards, as GDPR and SOC, airSlate offers a procedure to comply with data protection requirements.

What is a digital security and compliance course?

The course will introduce you to legal regulations and standards related to security and compliance. It reveals how airSlate processes and saves data securely and helps companies stay GDPR and HIPAA compliant. Overview of privacy and security policies will make you better understand how data is collected and for what purposes. You’ll be able to understand how to enhance compliance with the help of the audit trail and track every single step in your Flow.
