SAP GDPR Compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) launched in 2018 for citizens of the European Union (EU), prompting enterprises to re-think their data management practices. Qlik (Attunity) solutions can assist you with GDPR compliance, especially in SAP environments.

Non-production SAP environments

Production data cannot simply be copied “as is”. Amongst the new regulations introduced by GDPR is the right of restriction on the use of PII. If production data is sourced for development, testing or user training, then data managers must apply anonymization techniques to all PII, and this process must be irreversible.

Reduced risk of non-compliant PII usage

Qlik Gold Client for Data Protection addresses these challenges in several ways.

  • Replicate precisely-defined data subsets across their SAP environments.
  • Synchronize anonymization procedures across all core and/or industry-specific SAP modules.
  • Anonymization process cannot be reverse engineered.
  • Implement the “right to be forgotten” by erasing and obfuscating PII.
  • Easily report on these procedures to demonstrate GDPR compliance.

Powerful data masking

Qlik Gold Client for Data Protection provides several options to protect PII data via data masking. Data masking applies a set of rules to “scramble” your production data when it is replicated to a non-production environment.

  • Dynamic masking is used when the data is in flight.
  • Static masking is when applying scrambling rules to a previously unscrambled non-production SAP environment.

The Qlik data masking process cannot be reverse engineered to recreate the original source data.

Enforce “Right to Be Forgotten”

The right to be forgotten is one of the most challenging aspects of GDPR. However, referential integrity of Qlik Gold Client for Data Protection ensures that when customer data is purged from your system, all instances of that PII data are deleted across all SAP environments.
