Once discovered action can be taken by the client to safeguard it or remove it altogether. Furthermore, Groundlabs’ flagship Enterprise Recon solution scans over 140 data types across 7 platforms to ensure compliance with new privacy regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force in May 2018.
