The CMS software you choose should help you comply with the rules and regulations of various data privacy laws and practices.
This doesn’t only apply to companies that do business in regions with data protection laws; protecting your users’ data is just a good rule of thumb.
To cover your bases, you should make sure your CMS can:
- Locate data and navigate within it to map data flow
- Keep track of the given consent of your website’s visitors
- Process data and compile it for Right to Access requests
- Delete relevant data for Right to Be Forgotten claims
- Provide data in machine-readable formats
A CMS software that can help you comply with international laws means you can avoid the unpleasant (often hefty) fines that come with not protecting users’ data. Keep data protection in mind.
