Kroll Ontrack has developed an in-depth guide to the secure deletion of digital data in line with the European Parliament General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Due to be enforced by 2018, GDPR will replace the EU Data
Protection Directive 1995 and unify data protection legislation across all 28 member states. It will require all businesses handling EU residents’ data to delete personal information on request or when it is no longer required by the organisation. The guide provides a useful overview of the main operational and regulatory aspects concerning the secure deletion of data.
