Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016, better known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is designed to enable persons present in the European Union (EU) to better control their personal data. The GDPR identifies two primary parties in scope of its requirements – controllers and processors. Controllers determine the “purpose and means of the processing of personal data.” Processors process personal data “on behalf of the controller.” The GDPR became effective on May 25, 2018.

In the context of the GDPR, Deltek takes on the role of processor in its relationship with its customers. As a result of this role, Deltek has certain general responsibilities as outlined in the GDPR. Keeping customers’ information, including personal data, safe and secure is among our highest priorities and most important responsibilities. Deltek works to implement and maintain strong security and privacy protections that reflect best practices as it relates to the GDPR.
