The Leeds release brings a number of new features and improvements to Smoothwall, along with some changes to how we want to work in the future.
First, let’s look at the major changes.
GDPR. This is a phrase on everyone’s lips – at least until next month. There’s no such thing as “GDPR compliant software”, but we want to help you conform to the new laws. To this end, we’ve added functionality to support two new requests: the “subject access request”, and the “right to be forgotten”.
The subject access request tool is available in the reporting system, under the “System” heading – it’s called “extract personal data”. It’s up to you to add all the identifiers someone might have been called by (so we suggest their AD username and their email should both be entered). This will then download a zip file you can pass to a user who’s asked for their own data.
