The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new regulation that anyone who has business within the EU has to comply with. As an ecommerce shop, customers will be inputting a lot of their data and it's important that this is done in a safe and secure environment. Customers can ask for this information to be deleted and you must act upon it.
This will come into effect May 25th 2018, but don't worry as everyone at WebBoss has you covered.
How does GDPR affect your clients?
The customer must give consent for any data to be stored through your business including emails, account logins and store purchases to name a few. Your clients need to be able to access and modify this information if they are asked by a customer. This can get complicated if multiple third-party plugins are involved or if there isn't a dedicated team member in place to address these issues.
As a developer, the ability to ensure your clients that you can be GDPR compliant within a secure and accessible environment is a great selling point.
Reliable GDPR compliance with WebBoss CMS
“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link” If you are using a platform reliant on third-party plugins then you may not be as compliant as you once thought. You may need to rethink your developer environment if certain plugins you have relied on aren't compliant or slow to the mark.
Being ISO 27001 certified means that all data stored, using the WebBoss.io CMS and any of its components, is secure and GDPR compliant. Customers who need data changed can do so within a safe and secure environment with no unreliable third-party to interfere.
This means that you can safely use the WebBoss.io development environment without worrying if a certain plugin or component is GDPR compliant. You as a developer can continue to build websites without having to worry and the client can control their ecommerce data safely and securely.
Overall the GDPR is something that we will all have to worry about sooner rather than later. Here at WebBoss.io we have been working to ensure that all clients and customers who use a WebBoss powered website are working safely within the regulations of GDPR on May 25th.
