GDPR: A Technology Guide for Security Practitioners


Adoption of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is motivating organizations worldwide to improve existing technical controls for securing personal information. Organizations should be especially aware that the GDPR and other recent legal developments amplify the negative repercussions of a data security breach - meaning organizations have increased incentives to avoid a breach.

GDPR, which takes effect May 25, 2018, will impose formal, new data security requirements on organizations within the European Union, affecting many companies.For larger, multinational organizations, these types of new security regulations reflect three major trends: greater potential monetary penalties imposed by regulators, more rules for disclosure of data breaches, and increased exposure to diverse proceedings and investigations into whether data security is adequate.
