European Commission to investigate Microsoft over GDPR compliance

The European Union’s data protection supervisor will investigate whether Microsoft Corp is in compliance with the EU’s new GDPR rules.

In a significant development, the European Union’s data protection supervisor disclosed, it has launched an investigation into whether services and products provided by U.S. software giant Microsoft Corp to EU institutions are in compliance with its new GDPR, data privacy rules.

EU bodies, like the European Commission and the Parliament, rely on Microsoft services and products to carry out their daily activities, said the supervisor body.

The investigation will look into whether the contractual arrangements between the U.S. company and EU institutions to process personal data are “fully compliant with data protection rules.”
