Get GDPR compliant with Dynamics NAV

On May 25, 2018, a European privacy law is due to take effect that sets a new global bar for privacy rights, security, and compliance. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fundamentally about protecting and enabling the privacy rights of individuals. The GDPR establishes strict privacy requirements governing how you manage and protect personal data while respecting individual choice—no matter where data is sent, processed, or stored.

As mentioned in an earlier blog post, Microsoft is dedicated to helping our partners and customers meet the requirements of the GDPR. By May 2018, Dynamics NAV 2018, Dynamics NAV 2017, Dynamics NAV 2016, and Dynamcis NAV 2015 will be updated with tools to help you get GDPR compliant. The March cumulative updates have just been made available and provide the first round of updates for you. We have prepared a Dynamics NAV whitepaper that will help you prepare for compliance. Get it here.

The following links provide additional information and will be updated over time:

      Hi David,
      Yes, we’re sorry for the delay, but we hope you’ll find it useful. Also, our blog site marked some of your earlier comments as spam for some reason, which is why you couldn’t see them until today. We’ve unblocked those comments so you have them all visible again.

    Thanks for the whitepaper. The purpose is to classify tables and field in Dynamics NAV – but how do we enable / manage the implementation afterwards from the Web- and Windows Client? I can only find the new property DataClassification but nothing new in the Clients.

      Hi Morten,
      We’ll add more capabilities in the April cumulative updates, but you can already now export lists to Excel and view or edit the classifications there as described in the whitepaper.

        Just to be sure.. Right now in NAV 2018 Update I have to create the Rapidstart package myself (Because i can only see one package in the version right now – Danish version – and that one is not related to GDPR) ?

        Secondly – You are going to create rapidstart packages to export the information into excel?
