With the 2018.1 Release of the LEAPWORK Automation Platform, users can ensure that their data storage in relation to automation is GDPR compliant.
All companies that do business in and with European Union member states are forced to consider how they manage the personal data of customers, users, employees, etc. This is due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a regulation in EU law that became enforceable in member states on May 25, 2018.
GDPR contains a series of rights for the individual citizens or users, including the right to know which data has been a collected about them, how that data is being used, and for which purpose. The fact that personal data storage and usage is an inevitable part of process automation has been taken into account with the 2018.1 Release of the LEAPWORK Automation Platform which introduces a new Controller – the software that, among other things, stores all the data used in automation flows. With the new Controller, LEAPWORK users can ensure that their data storage in relation to test and process automation is GDPR compliant – whether they are using the software in a test or production context, or both.
