Essential Security Technologies for GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the existing Data Protection Directive on May 25, 2018. 
 
This law has been designed to protect the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) on EU Residents and will replace our existing data protection law with a modern law designed for the data and internet age and backed up with some big punitive measures for non-compliance. 
 
These measures not only include fines of up-to 4% of global turnover or €20M - whichever is the greater- but also open the door for large scale consumer litigation (think “class action”), equal measures for processors and controllers and more. Although this is an EU measure we have “Brexit” coming, so it’s important to note that the UK legislators have already indicated that we will be adopting mirroring legislation. 
 
In any event the GDPR will be transcribed into UK law prior to any “Brexit” so in practice the GDPR is now a reality for UK organisations to adopt. 
 
This whitepaper produced by data compliance experts DQM GRC will attempt to clarify the specific security needs that organisations must consider arising from the GDPR and will highlight some of the key technologies that may help.
