The Implications of GDPR for Digital Archiving

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduces a unique new set of challenges for organisations looking to archive their website and social media communications.

GDPR gives EU citizens greater control of how their personal data is collected and used, introducing new rights for individuals - including the right to erasure - and new responsibilities for organisations to ensure any personal data they hold is secure, well governed, protected against accidental destruction or disclosure, and not stored for longer than the organisation has a valid reason to do so.

As such, organisations must ensure the potentially vast amount of personal data held in their digital archives is only ever stored and used in a GDPR-compliant way - and that any third-party data processors they use, such as archiving and cloud storage providers, are compliant in themselves.
