The impending European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a sea-change in a company’s security strategies, transcending checkbox compliance programs.
GDPRs data scope encompass wide ranging consumer info beyond personal identifiers such as social security numbers, to data on a persons race, politics, web browsing cookies, as well as biometrics. The European Parliament aims to protect the privacy data of its citizens in all 28 EU member states, and extends this shield to cover the data collected on EU citizens by any company worldwide, even if they don’t have a business presence within the EU.
The fines for data breaches or non-compliance can be severe — up to 20 million or 4% of annual WW revenue, whichever is higher. The compliance scope complexity, coupled with these potential penalties, requires configuring a methodical framework of:
- Gap analysis / assessment
- Incident Response Planning
- Vulnerability Definition & Mitigation
- Managed Security Services ensuring Continuous Compliance
