Exchange Server and the GDPR

The GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is the new European framework for the processing and circulation of personal data, the information on which companies rely to offer services and products. This text covers all residents of the European Union.

Electronic messaging is therefore primarily concerned by this regulation and Promodag Reports is particularly valuable for your company in this respect.

Right of prior consent

You can easily extract to CSV the list of recipients of the last newsletter using Promodag Reports so that you can compare it with your own list of those who have informed you of their prior consent to receive such messages (opt-in). The Find Specific Messages report will be used for this purpose.

Right to data portability

The compliance of your tools and databases to the GPDR requires you to be able to return to an exiting employee all of his personal emails; this is called the right to data portability. The Find Specific Messages report allows you, once again, to inventory the messages identified as personal, if this is stipulated in your charter of good practices, by means of a search by subject.

Protection of personal data against data leaks

Access to the mailbox of an employee is possible to the extent that the continuity of the company requires it. However, the list of persons authorized to consult this mailbox and possibly some of its files must be periodically revised to avoid abuse. The Permissions on Mailboxes and Permissions on Mailbox Folders reports give you the ability to periodically check who has access to them and thus both prevent data leakage.

Right to be forgotten

The General Mailbox Content report dynamically retrieves a list of Outlook items based on filters that can be combined. In this way, you can isolate messages containing personal identifiable data (PID) falling within the scope of the right to be forgotten, for example the curriculum vitae or the identity document number of an applicant or a departing employee.
