What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU regulation that completely overhauled how businesses process and handle data belonging to EU residents. This means the regulation applies to companies that are in and out of the European Union. The regulation came into place in May 2018. GDPR came in alongside the 2018 Data Protection Act as the earlier version was deemed no longer fit for purpose.

Your business will have multiple areas that need to be taken care of when thinking about GDPR, but one section you may not have thought about is your printers and how they may be affected by this regulation. Here at BBT, we know just how much information and data is stored on MFDs and production printers. We now work with all our customers to help bring them inline so they are not caught off guard.

We offer a few software solutions to help with this and are also on hand to give expert advice on whether you are compliant. If you're unsure where to start or have read a lot online and it still doesn't make sense, we have broken it down into 5 steps to make your printing and document management GDPR-compliant.

You need to ensure you secure the end-to-end workflow of your printers. Everything needs to be considered, from when the print job is requested to how the document is handled after printing.

Stop Unwanted Printing
It'd be no surprise if your company throws out hundreds of documents that have been falsely printed or forgotten about. With two-factor print release, the job isn't printed until the user authenticates at the machine.

Protect Documents Even After Printing
Now that two-factor authentication ensures documents land in the right hands, now what? How are they protected after print? How are they destroyed after use? These questions must be addressed.

Allow Data Owners to Access Their Info
GDPR requires that companies holding data must allow data owners to access any data that the company holds about them. It's important that you allow your customers this access.

Allow Customers To Say Goodbye
GDPR also requires that you allow your customers to remove any information you have about them. Our software solutions can offer a 1 button 'erase all' function that does this for you.
