ADACOM ensures GDPR compliance
While the nuts and bolts details of GDPR are certainly complicated, the broad overall objective is not. The GDPR exists to keep individuals’ private and personal information safe. Fortunately, this goal aligns well with most organizations’ best interests. And by understanding and embracing a few essential data protection principles, organizations can develop a holistic strategy that both facilitates GDPR compliance and protects the organization from the other business consequences of poor, incomplete data protection. Preparing for GDPR demands better risk visibility, information protection, and breach detection and response. With a clear understanding of activity across the organization, effective policies and solutions can be put in place to achieve GDPR compliance.
Understanding the implications of GDPR and developing a data protection strategy to ensure legal compliance, mitigate risk, and maintain consumer confidence is critical to organizations around the globe. Regardless of where they are located, they must understand the impact the GDPR has on their organization and how they process personal data. Organizations outside of the EU are unsure if they are obligated to comply with the GDPR. Many executives are under the assumption that if they are compliant with other regulations such as PCI, HIPAA, and PPI, they are compliant with the GDPR. With the heavy fines associated with non-compliance, it is critical that organizations globally understand the impact of GDPR and the necessary steps to comply. For organizations who have identified GDPR as a 2018 priority, many have invested in a disjointed set of data protection technologies to develop their compliance strategy. This piecemeal approach causes a lack visibility across the network, major protection gaps and management complexity, further compromising GDPR compliance. With a clear understanding of activity across the organization, effective policies and solutions can be put in place to achieve GDPR compliance.
