With just a few weeks left in 2018, many global organizations are still failing to adhere to the General Data Protection Regulations’ (GDPR) strict conditions and are instead taking a wait-and-see approach. They mistakenly believe compliance only affects large organizations with deep pockets.
The launch of GDPR in Europe, the signing of the Japanese Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI), and the Brazilian Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD) all catalyzed a global shift toward comprehensive data privacy regulations.
Gartner predicts that by the end of 2018, more than 50 percent of companies affected by GDPR will not be in full compliance with the requirements. Cylance provides needed resources to organizations that don’t have the IT and personnel budgets to meet compliance regulations on their own—from identification to remediation, to ongoing prevention.
In this week’s episode of DirtySecurity, Edward Preston talks with Cylance Managing Director of Security Practice Dr. Anton Grisham about living in a post-GDPR world. The pressure is on organizations now to respect and protect the privacy of people who interact with them.
