Gartner predicts that, “By the end of 2018, over 50% of companies affected by the GDPR will not be in full compliance with its requirements.”*
In less than a year, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will require global organisations to control, process and protect the personal data of EU citizens at a much higher level than they do now. It’s arguably the most important regulation in a generation, but it is time to move beyond mere awareness and understanding of what GDPR is, and start making decision about how you are going to address it especially with your cloud-based applications.
The first step for any organisation to operate within the boundaries of GDPR, is to understand how important your data is and the risk of it being compromised. To protect from hackers, you need to think like one. How are you assessing vulnerabilities and configuration flaws that might leave your data comprised? Data breaches are often not discovered until weeks or months later, how are you detecting and assessing indicators of compromise so that you can know you have been breached and respond within the 72-hour deadline?
