You may already know that May 25, 2018 is the date on which the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes enforceable. What that enforcement will look like remains to be seen, but if you think it doesn’t apply to your business based outside of the EU, you may need to think again.
Approved by the EU Parliament back in April of 2016, and designed to bring a consistent approach to protecting EU citizens’ data privacy, the EU GDPR is arguably one of the most important changes made to data privacy in the past 20 years. And it impacts a lot more organizations than just those with a presence in the EU.
While handling, processing and controlling data is at the heart of the GDPR, securing access to that data is just as important. Demonstrating that you have appropriate access policies in place, and that your organization limits access to personal data only to users who need it, is a key component to maintaining compliance. A network security product like SafeConnect can help you mitigate risks, enforce access policies and provide control over the data you need to protect the most.
