GDPR Compliance Solutions for Cyber Security

GDPR (EU)

The 5 Cyber Security clauses within GDPR 

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulatory framework for data protection and privacy that came into effect on 25th May 2018.  It includes 99 articles or clauses covering virtually every aspect of business and information management – everything from the consent to collect and process information, to the “right to be deleted”.  Importantly for global businesses (including those outside the EU) the GDPR is supra-national, therefore any business that processes the data of EU citizens will fall under its remit, not just European businesses.

For cyber security professionals, the drive for data protection and information management is not new; although the level of detail, the requirements on data breach notification and the fines in GDPR impose a lot more focus.  There are five individual articles or clauses that have specific cyber security requirements:

How to comply with the 5 cyber security clauses of GDPR 

For security monitoring and operations in GDPR compliant businesses there is increased focus on both prevention and avoidance of security and privacy breaches.  Further, it is imperative to be able to respond quickly when a problem does occur, understand it and take action.  The 72 hours allowed to notify the government authority is accompanied by an expectation that affected data subjects will be communicated with promptly.  As a minimum, businesses handling personal data will need to:

  • Continuously monitor evidence and records around data transactions and breaches with comprehensive collection, processing and storage of activity logs;
  • Detect and respond to issues quickly to comply with notification rules and reduce fines by demonstrating effective controls, oversight and containment of breaches;
  • Achieve demonstrable compliance to GDPR as well as meeting business needs.
