General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

On October 6, 2015, the EU’s highest court (ECJ)[1] struck down the Safe Harbor Agreement between the US and the European Commission.

Many believe the EU will move forward with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), “The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was proposed in 2012 and aims to apply a single set of data protection rules across the European Union (EU) to protect user’s data.”[2]

It's quite apparent that compliance and regulatory obligations are increasingly becoming much more complex, leaving global organizations sending and receiving PII data across different jurisdictions open to substantial fines and penalties.  When data travels cross borders, as it does so often, the risk increases on an exponential basis for the data owner.  This affects the SMB cloud computing business or the multi-national organization.

If or when the GDPR takes effect (end of 2015), global organizations will need to localize all data protection flow policies to meet each of the individual regions regulations, is your organization prepared?

Data owners must not only know who is sending their data and where that data is going, they must be able to prevent, based on content & context, data transmissions in an instant.

Legacy DLP, Data Classification & Data Discovery solutions cannot accurately provide both the content & context awareness to respond to EU General Data Protection Regulation ( GDPR ).   

Whether it be on premises or off premise and via the cloud, GTB Technologies has the answer.
