Why it's vital to safeguard data
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European regulation designed to improve and unify the way that organisations operating across the EU collect, handle, process and store personal data such as HR records and customer lists. Among the requirements of the GDPR is the need for organisations to improve information security and governance.
In the UK, the requirements of the GDPR are enshrined in the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA).
- Improve resilience against cyber-attacks
- Rapidly detect and respond to malicious threats
- Report breaches within the stipulated 72 hours
- Understand and minimise security risks
- Enhance security policies and employee awareness
- Demonstrate good practice with Cyber Essentials
Respond swiftly and effectively to breaches
To avoid a large GDPR fine, it’s vital that organisations have appropriate controls in place to detect personal data breaches and report them to the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours.
The covert nature of today’s attacks however means that organisations without proactive threat detection in place may struggle to identify attacks when they occur. Hackers can reside undetected on networks for months.
ThreatDetect™, Redscan’s award-winning Managed Detection and Response service, supplies an experienced team of SOC experts, the latest network and endpoint monitoring tools, and up-to-the-minute threat intelligence to identify and respond to attacks before they escalate.More about GDPR BREACH REPORTING
