CISCO and compliance with the GDPR General Data Protection RegulationMaria Cruz Alcocer
SOLUTEL and CISCO help you in GDPR compliance. When GDPR takes effect 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 risk fines of up to 20 millions of euros or up to a 4 % of 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 what type of data it manages and depending on this data, what specific means and procedures must be used to store and protect it according to the GDPR regulation.
Generic measures for compliance with the GDPR:
1.- Best practices in systems management.
2.- Data encryption both in storage and in 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 breach of personal data (data leakage) to the National Data Protection Authority. Otherwise, the fines can reach up to 4% of the annual turnover or 20 million euros.
Inform within 72 hours about:
1.- Identify what happens, the security breach.
2.- Identify what data has been violated.
3.-How it has been resolved.
4.- Mechanisms and methods in place so that it does not happen again.
With CISCO security solutions, we are currently responding to security breaches in an average of 3.5 hours. It consists of having visibility of what is happening in your network and responding to what is happening.
