Hello! My name is Josh.
In 2018, 33% of successful digital attacks compromised personal information. Protecting customer and company data is the number one mission for organizations as data privacy regulations are propagating at a global scale.
The challenge becomes discovering better, more effective ways to protect customer data while achieving GDPR compliance and avoiding fines.
Here are a few ways your cybersecurity team can rise to meet the challenge of safeguarding digital privacy.
FIRST, embrace regulations such as GDPR whose purpose it is to make improvements to data privacy. By leveraging cloud services, production, security, and collaboration, you can simplify compliance requirements and stay audit-ready.
SECOND, simplify compliance by leveraging the cloud. How? By encouraging IT decision makers to use cloud services and their primary storage method and viewing compliance as a partnership or “shared responsibility.”
Since 92% of most businesses that house data in the cloud have full confidence in GDPR compliance, these businesses can see opportunities in compliance.
This brings us to the THIRD safeguard which is to understand that shared responsibility must ensure data protection. This can be achieved by working with providers who offer transparency and allow users to more effectively manage obligations for data privacy.
The FOURTH method is to effectively protect and respond when requests for relevant regulatory data are made as part of GDPR.
FINALLY, empower people by encouraging them to identify sensitive information and take measures to keep it more secure. This can be done with a combination of human intervention and streamlined automation to help reduce errors. We need to be able to automatically regenerate apps and agents and restore privacy protections quickly while meeting regulatory requirements.
By creating leadership in cloud compliance, getting the facts by performing risk assessments and being ready to respond with precision when relevant data must be located, your organization can remain audit-ready and leverage intelligent security to protect against modern cyber-attacks.
