A Common Sense Approach to GDPR Compliance
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation passed in the European Union (EU) to ensure complete data protection. It has a strict set of regulations and penalizes the non-complying organizations heavily, up to almost 4% of their annual net revenue.
GDPR stipulates that companies, irrespective of whether within or outside of EU, must ensure complete data protection for the citizens of EU. This includes controlling who can access and use information, and respecting the citizens’ right to be forgotten.
Data-Centric Security & GDPR
If your organization is based in the EU or transacts with companies in the EU, then GDPR compliance is mandatory.
At its core, GDPR is about ensuring the ability to control and track data wherever it travels. A straightforward approach is to attach data-centric security to any customer information stored on your own servers and shared with third parties.
Three Reasons Data-Centric Security is Ideal for Addressing Key Aspects of GDPR
Control Who & What
Control who can use the information and to what extent
Revoke access to information – whether it is inside or outside the organization – whenever you deem necessary
Track and Audit
Track the use of information wherever it travels and automatically generate GDPR reports consisting of details such as the devices and IP addresses that use the information
