Microsoft becomes the first Cloud Provider to offer GDPR contractual commitment publicly

In an official Microsoft blog post, Microsoft has guaranteed contractual public commitment for the European Union’s General Data Protection regulation (GDPR), a privacy regulation which goes into effect on May 25, 2018.

If your organization collects, hosts or analyses personal data of EU residents, GDPR provisions require you to use third-party data processors who guarantee their ability to implement the technical and organizational requirements of the GDPR.

Microsoft is making its contractual commitments available so that it provides key GDPR-related assurances about Microsoft services. Microsoft contractual commitments guarantee that any organisation using Microsoft cloud can:

  • Respond to requests to correct, amend or delete personal data.
  • Detect and report personal data breaches.
  • Demonstrate compliance with the GDPR.
This is great news for all Microsoft Azure cloud customers and equally significant for Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM Customers in Europe who are directly impacted by all the new GDPR regulations.
