CISCO and compliance with the GDPR General Data Protection Regulation

Compliance with the GDPR

SOLUTEL and CISCO help you in GDPR compliance. When GDPR enters into force on May 25, 2018, companies will have 72 hours to report security breaches or face significant fines. It will apply to all types of companies that offer services or products to people who are in the territory of the European Union.

Companies that do not comply with it risk fines of up to 20 million euros or up to 4% of the total annual turnover.


The GDPR and data protection

The GDPR covers all aspects of the use, management and protection of personal data of EU residents by companies, regardless of the location of the business. Right now, a comprehensive data security strategy is more important than ever.

Each of the companies must be clear about the type of data managed and based on these data, which specific means and procedures must be used to store and protect them according to the GDPR regulation.

Generic measures for compliance with the GDPR:

1.- Best practices in systems management.

2.- Encryption of data in both storage and communications

3.- BackUp recovery system.

What is the challenge?

The challenge is to respond appropriately in time, to any violation of the rules. 72 hours is the maximum time to report a possible violation of personal data (data leakage) to the National Data Protection Authority. Otherwise, fines can reach up to 4% of annual turnover or 20 million euros.

Report within 72 hours on:

1.- Identify what happens, the security breach.

2.- Identify what data have been violated.

3.-How it has been resolved.

4.- Mechanisms and methods put in place so that it does not happen again.


With CISCO’s security solutions, responses to security breaches are now taking place in an average of 3.5 hours. Consite in having visibility of what is happening in your network and respond to what is happening.
