Digital asset management (DAM) systems are an essential part of many businesses, storing and organising all your files and making life easier for all staff. But, with all these files being used and shared, how can you make sure your company is complying with the new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) legislation? Keep reading to find out whether your DAM system complies with the new rules…

Who can access your files?

The primary function of the EU’s new GDPR legislation is to monitor and control how companies operating within the EU collect and use their customers’ personal data. So, it’s important that you are aware of who has access to your DAM system and can restrict access if necessary.

This is especially important if you’re dealing with sensitive files. That’s anything which discloses any personal information about either employees or individuals outside of the company.

If you have countless files containing personal information, don’t panic! Most good DAM systems allow users to control who has access to specific files to avoid data getting into the wrong hands. iBase’s digital asset system even allows users to select who can see certain metadata tags, as these often include personal data.

How secure is your system?

Of course, the first step towards improving customer safety and privacy is to ensure that your DAM system is secure and protected. If the files can be viewed by an outsider or if they are often shared freely, chances are you’re not compliant with the new GDPR rules.

First of all, anyone that appears on any of your data must have given explicit consent to be featured. You also need to present the option to remove any files at any given time, making sure that any shared files are removed too. iBase’s policy is to destroy any personal data within 5 days of request, shredding hard copies and wiping digital records.
