Are you ready for the enforcement of the GDPR – May 25th 2018?
“In order to maintain security and to prevent processing in infringement of this Regulation, the controller or processor should evaluate the risks inherent in the processing and implement measures to mitigate those risks, such as encryption.” – GDPR Recital 83
The GDPR was designed to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy, and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. Organizations have to make sure that their personal data is stored securely, whether on-premise or cloud-based. The good thing about using file encryption; secured data that is stolen during a breach will be rendered useless.
We hear about data hacks or leaks daily nowadays. Since 2013, nearly 10 billion data records have been lost or stolen. Only 4% were “Secure Breaches”, where encryption was used and the stolen data was rendered useless. Companies need to rethink their data safety models and plans, in order to minimize the chances of risking the high anti-compliance fines of 4% of their global turnover or €20 million; whichever is greater.Most breaches were cases of Identity Theft (SSN, ID number, names, medical records, etc.) The sources were mostly malicious outsiders, usually referred to as “hackers”. The industries that suffered the most breaches include healthcare, financial, education, retail and government.
