    Arkivum has announced the availability of its compliance module as part of its PERPETUA solution.

    The module is designed to help educational institutions meet the stringent data privacy rules of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which will take full effect from May 25th, 2018.

    The Arkivum Compliance Module (ACM) provides flexible record management capabilities such as retention management, secure removal of data, evidence-ready data exports, comprehensive audit trails, chain of custody, data encryption and data sovereignty.

    Arkivum PERPETUA ensures that both Data Controllers and Data Processors adhere to GDPR regulatory requirements pertaining to long-term data management with tools that help organisations track and manage consent as well as comply with a Data Subject’s rights, such as “right to be forgotten”, “right to portability” and “right to access”, etc.

    Providing total control of the location of the data at all times, coupled with end-to-end encryption, the ACM delivers assurance that personal data under an organisations’ control is safe, secure and GDPR compliant.

    Sinéad McKeown, VP Product Management at Arkivum, said: “We are excited to announce the availability of the Arkivum Compliance Module as part of Arkivum PERPETUA. GDPR brings significant changes in processes, technology and required attention to the way personal data is processed, preserved and archived. With Arkivum PERPETUA, these tasks are built-in.”

    McKeown continues: “The need to adhere to GDPR does not stop in the European Union. We see increasing demand coming from organisations around the world concerned with GDPR when it comes to student records, European funded research data and European data subject’s documents, digital assets and records.”
