GDPR Isn’t About May 25 – It’s About Forever
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on May 25, 2018. Regardless of whether your organization is ready or not, you should be aware that the security and compliance landscape is changing, and that C-level executives at your organization are ultimately responsible.
Many organizations have simply shrugged off data breaches, sometimes notifying the victims months later. Uber took a full year before telling anyone. The GDPR makes it crystal clear that executives will be held responsible. The day of reckoning will come, like it or not.
Risk assessments and mitigation processes are must-haves. Cybercriminals aren’t going to phone you to let you know they will be stealing your unprotected data and content. This is where technology tools can be an enormous help.
Our clients regularly use our technology framework to identify and protect data privacy for organizationally-defined sensitive information exposures, in real-time. They also use it to significantly improve the accuracy of search results, automatically process records transparently, clean up content repositories, enable secure collaboration, and the list goes on. If you’d like a demo, please just let us know.
Join us for our Enough Talk – Solving GDPR Problems Through Metadata-Driven Compliance webinar, on Wednesday, March 14. This session explains not only the ramifications of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) but also how to address the compliance issues. It examines the tactical aspects of the solution, little-known stumbling blocks, and different tools that automate changes and provide an audit trail for compliance.
