TCS recognized as a leader in GDPR services by NelsonHall

• India’s largest IT services company Tata Consultancy Services has been recognized as a leader in offering General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) services by NelsonHall’s NEAT evaluation.

• The General Data Protection Regulations is a comprehensive set of directives put in place by the European Union to protect personal data of all its citizens. The new regime that came into effect on May 25 in EU seeks to reshape the way organizations have approached data privacy in the region.

• The report lists as TCS strength, its extensive knowledge of customers’ IT systems, allowing for faster implementation, the wave-based approach to remediation which prioritizes the most vulnerable processes; TCS’ ownership of tools like MasterCraft Dataplus for data governance, cleansing and masking, and Crystal Ball for consent management; and a strong managed security services practice for ongoing compliance and security operations, along with investments in machine learning for security with the ignio platform.

• From utilities to financial services, all businesses require user data to offer services to their customers. The GDPR allows customers/users to know more about what kind of data is being collected, for what purpose it is being used, and bestow customers with the right to delete their data if they are not convinced by the use of their data by companies.
