The GDPR in brief

The General Data Protection Regulation's (GDPR) strict requirements and huge non-compliance penalties (€20 million or 4 percent of an organization's global annual turnover) make it the most stringent of all regulations in the industry.

These requirements, which aim to provide individuals with more visibility over how their personal data is handled by enterprises, not only require organizations to enhance their security strategies to ensure data security at all levels, but also outline post-breach strategies to minimize the impact of attacks

The GDPR governs how an enterprise should: 

  • Collect personal data from data subjects. 
  • Secure data at various stages-at rest, in use, and during transmission.
  • Establish accountability for securing personal data.
  • React in case of a data breach.

It's high time for enterprises located in the EU or those that collect and process the personal data of EU citizens to be compliant with the GDPR

  • Simple steps to GDPR compliance

  • Identify

    First, learn how the GDPR defines "personal data." Then, inventory all personal data that your enterprise handles based on business context.

  • Isolate

    When you store personal data separately from the rest of the data in your organization, it's easier to set up the right access controls. Only those who are supposed to view or perform operations on personal data should have access to that data.

  • Detect

    In the event of a data breach, enterprises are expected to promptly detect and analyze what happened. Be notified whenever something goes wrong, such as logon failures due to bad password.

  • React

    Deploy systems that can detect breaches in real time and combat attacks immediately with automated workflows. Prepare incident reports that provide detailed information on the impact of a breach, including the data that was breached, how the breach occurred, and measures taken to prevent similar breaches in the future.

  • Audit

    Track all access to files and folders or databases where personal data is stored. Don't forget to audit the activities and accesses on servers where the files, folders, and databases reside. Any access or critical change to storage servers or the data itself—including permission changes, privilege escalations, unauthorized accesses, or data deletion and modification—should be audited to detect anomalies instantly.
