Physical Access Control Systems to be affected by GDPR, security experts believe
Physical access control systems are likely to be affected by the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) set to go into effect in May, as data stored on physical access systems will be covered by the new privacy rules, security experts have argued.
As GDPR promises severe penalties for non-compliance, companies are advised so take serious measures in order to ensure that they adhere to the regulation.
For example, an organisation should have a specific statement in which an employee gives their consent about the data being held in the physical access system database, and organizations should also have a very clear and transparent policy in place regarding the use of such data.
Furthermore, an organisation needs to define who has access to the database and also be able to track where the data is stored, while also drawing up a policy and consent form for contractors and visitors.
