Get ahead of GDPR today
If you do business with Europe, or you have European data or affiliates, you are governed by the European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). And while the regulations don’t come into effect until 2018, you need to start planning now.
The GDPR is fairly broad and has a number of controls in place such as privacy by design, consent and control mechanisms, the ability to remove your data from a network and assign a data protection officer, as well as stringent data breach notification rules. If these rules are violated, it can mean fines in the tens of millions.
To help you navigate the hundreds of controls and simplify your approach, Industry Security Strategist, Mark Sangster recommends enlisting the help of a security advisory professional.
