GDPR Compliance: How does it affect you?

GDPR Compliance: How does it affect you?

The General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) EU 2016/679 will come into force as law in the UK in May of 2018. GDPR will significantly alter the way businesses handle and store data.

Your organization will be required by law to implement new security controls, policies, and procedures in order to demonstrate GDPR compliance.  GDPR requires organizations to maintain a plan of action to detect a data breach, regularly evaluate the effectiveness of security practices, and document evidence of compliance. Instead of specific technical direction, the regulation puts the onus on organizations to maintain best practices for data security.

The master talk would serve an introduction to GDPR and the software tools designed by vendors such as Alien Vault Unified Security Management (USM) which can assist with security monitoring and compliance management platform to simplify and accelerate GDPR compliance.

Alien Vault is a leading U.S. Silicon Valley Cyber security high-tech firm.
