The intention behind GDPR 2018 is to ensure that companies keep all data they touch secure, this includes any data that is used or stored on mobile devices.
The main requirements of GDPR that affect all mobile devices are:
- To have the ability to containerise and locally store information that limits access to personal data to an “as needed” basis.
- To have the ability to manage mobile devices and laptops remotely.
- To have comprehensive encryption of data at rest and in motion.
- To have the ability to remove personal data upon request.
The best way to comply with the new regulations is with Mobile Device or Unified Endpoint Management software.
