The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), went into effect on May 25, 2018 and privacy professionals have been raising the alarm that, owing to its vast and often overly broad scope, enterprises everywhere could be facing excessive, unforeseen, and unintended consequences in the form of compliance burdens and penalties. Beyond privacy, the GDPR identifies numerous security requirements that drive companies to modify their best practices.
This white paper summarizes the security implications from the GDPR’s 435 pages, and provides guidance on how your IT security team should consider:
- Complying with “state of the art” technology requirements
- Fulfilling the 72-hour breach notification obligations
- Ensuring that personal data erasure processes are complete and efficient
- And more!
