GDPR Countdown to May 2018

Does your company handle the private information of individuals within the European Union (EU) or conduct business transactions with EU member states? If so, you’ve likely already taken action to get ready for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which becomes enforceable on May 25th, 2018. It’s been well over a year since the European Parliament published the regulation, and companies continue to exhaust massive amounts of time and money on new initiatives in preparation. Security programs are counting on Verodin to continuously monitor the effectiveness of these investments and ensure that full value is being realized.

The GDPR aims to establish a more preventative approach to the way organizations capture, process and protect EU citizens’ personal information from exposure. The obligations put forth by the GDPR are aggressive, and the penalties for non-compliance are steep… really steep. GDPR doesn’t provide a checklist of specific security controls that must be implemented to be compliant. Instead, GDPR outlines the principles and practices organizations should adopt to protect the rights of EU citizens. Critically, GDPR calls for organizations to implement a system to “regularly test, assess and evaluate the effectiveness” of their defensive operations.

Verodin SIP is purpose-built to continuously challenge and validate the effectiveness of your layered defenses across people, processes, and technology. The Verodin Security Instrumentation Platform (SIP) dramatically increases the ROI of your existing security investments, achieves maximum value from future spending and measurably matures cyber prevention, detection and response capabilities. Leveraging Security Instrumentation to prove GDPR effectiveness is a strong use case in demonstrating Verodin’s value.
