Published by: Marketwired

MILPITAS, CA–(Marketwired – November 28, 2016) – ZL Technologies, Inc. (ZL), the leader in unified information governance and analytics for the large enterprise, will present its GDPR-compliant file management capabilities at the 2016 IICE Europe Summit in Frankfurt, Germany. As a component of ZL File Analysis and Management (ZL FAM), these capabilities enable companies to address the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by locating and taking action on personally identifiable information (PII) within their file share environment.

With GDPR becoming enforceable in 2018, organizations that process EU citizen data will soon carry the burden of responding to subject requests for data deletion, access, transfer, and correction. Under GDPR, violations could carry fines of up to EUR 20 million, or 4% of a company’s global annual turnover, making an effective file management strategy essential.

ZL FAM accommodates GDPR requirements using accelerated analysis and advanced visualization capabilities to locate areas with PII across file share systems, ECM’s, SharePoint, etc. Metadata and content analysis then enable organizations to identify and tag files for deletion, access privileges management, retention policy coordination, and production for subject access requests.

The Information Management, Investigations, Compliance and eDiscovery (IICE) Europe Summit is an ideal event for ZL’s presentation, bringing together industry leaders from IT, Legal, Compliance, and Records Management. In addition to holding a sponsored booth at the event, Kon Leong, CEO of ZL, will present on the challenges of protecting privacy in file share environments and navigating the evolving regulatory landscape. The event will take place in Frankfurt, Germany, November 29-30, and the details of Leong’s speaking session are as follows:

Speaking Session Title: “Privacy in Public: The File Shares Challenge”
Time: 9:30-10:05AM, Tuesday, November 29
Location: Flemings Conference Hotel, Room #5
