CoreStream End of Year Update

18 Dec

As we move into the final few days of 2017, it provides us with an opportunity to reflect on what has been another very busy year for the CoreStream team.

This year has seen an expansion of our Digital Governance, Risk, and Information Asset Management offerings, as well as the introduction of new functionality and products onto our platform. We have also placed a large emphasis on enhancing the security of our products for our clients as we continue to embrace the latest in evolving technology. In addition, the CoreStream team continues to grow in size as we have welcomed new members into our development, testing and client management teams.

With the impact of Brexit, and additional regulations such as Open Banking and GDPR coming quickly down the path, the next 12 months look to be providing additional challenges for our clients around their Risk and Compliance requirements. We will continue to monitor these changes, and adapt our platform to the requirements of both our clients and the wider regulatory landscape in the coming year.

The CoreStream Management team would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our clients a very happy festive period, and all the best for 2018.

Coming soon…..a new version of Information Asset Manager to allow organisations to assess their alignment with GDPR Principles

19 Jul

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force in the UK from 25 May 2018. The government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.

CoreStream, like many other organisations, is currently analysing the requirements of GDPR, to ensure that our systems and processes are aligned with the GDPR Principles.

As part of this due diligence exercise, we will be making improvements to our Information Asset Manager module, to allow organisations to assess their alignment with GDPR Principles. We are aiming for the new version of CoreStream Information Asset Manager to be released by early 2018. For further information on this offering, please contact info@corestream.co.uk
