GDPR Compliance for Legacy Systems
But the required technical and organisational measures for comprehensive fulfilment of the conditions of the regulation are apparently finding their way into the priority list of the IT officers only slowly.

JiVS History for GDPR
With the help of the Java-based platform and particularly its component “JiVS History for GDPR”, the information taken over from inoperative legacy systems can be documented with retention periods and can be deleted irretrievably and automatically after the expiry of the legal retention periods. This extensive “Retention Management” also allows suspension of the automated deletion for exceptional cases such as ongoing lawsuits at the level of the individual data records and documents within the meaning of a so-called “Legal Hold”.
