Cross Application: General Data Protection Regulation in EhP8
Detailed Overview EhP8 Innovations

EhP8 delivers functionality that helps customers to comply with GDPR data privacy regulations
(effective May 25, 2018)

Scope:

These functions enable you to use the SAP Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) component to support the
deletion of personal data and to control the deletion and blocking of business partner master data. Personal
data collected in business partner master data can be blocked as soon as business activities for which this
data is needed are completed and the residence time for this data has elapsed; after this time, only users who
are assigned additional authorizations can access this data.

Key Benefit:

Simplify the processes for blocking and deleting personal data through the use of SAP Information Lifecycle
Management (ILM)
