Financial services organizations operate under a host of regulatory standards. This makes sense, as the assets and information managed by these firms are valuable, sensitive, and targeted by sophisticated cyber attackers daily.
Compounding these challenges is the large volume of personally identifiable information (PII) that financial organizations handle regularly. PII is subject to many compliance regulations, notably the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which regulates not only the processing of personal data, including PII, relating to individuals in the EU, for also any organization that processes personal data of EU residents.
For US banking consumers, Section 5 (Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices) of the Federal Trade Commission Act and numerous state regulations enforce basic consumer protections, which financial organizations must also uphold.
The European Union’s new regulatory framework for data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), became enforceable on 25 May, 2018.

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became enforceable on May 25, 2018, and privacy laws and regulations around the globe continue to evolve and expand.
Most organizations have invested, and continue to invest, in people, processes, technology, and policies to meet customer privacy requirements and avoid significant fines and other penalties. In addition, data breaches continue to expose the personal information of millions of people, and organizations are concerned about the products they buy, services they use, people they employ, and with whom they partner and do business with generally.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new legal framework that will come into effect on the 25th of May 2018 in the European Union. EU regulations have direct effect in all EU member states, meaning the GDPR replaces the current Data Protection Directive and applies to all EU member states.
The GDPR’s focus is the protection of personal data. In fact, GDPR is one of the biggest shakeups ever seen affecting how data relating to an individual should be handled—and it affects not just companies but any individual, corporation, public authority, agency or other body that processes the personal data of individuals based in the EU.
As gatekeepers and processors of personal data, HR and People teams have a crucial role to play in preparing for this step change. The rules on how data is kept and used will become much more stringent, and it’s vital that HR and People teams become more transparent, communicating to employees exactly how their data is processed.

How are you balancing strong security and the customer experience? The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirement is an opportunity to properly balance privacy and the user experience. Those who embrace it will distinguish themselves as a trustworthy and respectful custodian of their users’ data. Personal data plays an increasingly important part in providing the kind of appealing experience that brings users back time and time again. But, there’s a balance to be struck. Strong security is the best tool available for navigating the dichotomy between an appealing user experience and the risk posed by data breach; it allows the collection and management of personal data in line with the user’s expectations, and without jeopardizing the trust that is so important between them and you.

Reasonable, common-sense security standards are becoming law in many regions of the world. In Europe, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), enacted in April 2016, will become fully applicable on May 25, 2018. GDPR will bring the European Union (EU) under one comprehensive and harmonised legal system for data protection and privacy. The monetary penalties and reputational damage of noncompliance with GDPR are substantial – the maximum fines are the greater of 20 million euros or 4% of the company’s worldwide revenue.

The situation is critical, because the percentage of encrypted user traffic has more than doubled since 2014, exceeding 80 percent, according to F5 Labs' 2017 TLS Telemetry report. So, of course, now there are SSL visibility solutions that provide decryption services allowing those security controls to see what they’re doing.
But visibility, by itself, isn’t enough. Security teams and network operations have found that setting up decryption zones is not easy. Security teams often have to resort to manual daisy-chaining or tedious configuration to manage decryption/encryption across the entire security stack. And then they find that exceptions abound.
And lastly, you need to scan your inbound and outbound traffic for tomorrow’s threats, and SSL Orchestrator is the tool that lets your security controls keep your organization’s name out of the papers and away from those pesky GDPR fines.

GDPR will pose different challenges to each organisation. Understanding and acting on the implications for your own organisation is vital. That means taking a risk-based approach to ensure that you are doing what you need to do to manage your own specific risks to personal information.
While virtually all organisations will have to implement changes to become GDPR compliant, some will be able to take partial advantage of existing compliance to other security mandates and frameworks, such as ISO 27001 and PCI by extending those measures to protection of personal data. Even so, further work will be required to comply with GDPR, both with regards to security and its other aspects.

"GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation has just been signed into law and enacts new rules and stiff penalties for any company who misuses or loses European Union (EU) citizens’ personal data. This sweeping legislation has expanded the definition of personal data and puts IT and testing departments on high alert to safeguard personal data, across development and testing environments. Test data management, the process of obtaining and distributing test data for development teams, takes on greater urgency as the GDPR deadline looms.
Solid test data management practices will be key to overcoming compliance roadblocks and avoiding huge fines associated with GDPR. Utilizing new ways in which test data can be generated, distributed and managed will be pivotal role to meeting this regulation.

The Security Operations Center (SOC) is the first line of defense against cyber attacks. They are charged with defending the business against the many new and more virulent attacks that occur all day, every day. And the pressure on the SOC is increasing.
Their work is more important, as the cost of data breaches are now substantial. The Ponemon Institute’s “2017 Cost of Data Breach Study” says the average cost of an incursion is $3.62 million. The study also says larger breaches are occurring, with the average breach impacting more than 24,000 records. And with new regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Requirement (GDPR) putting stiff financial penalties on breaches of personal data, the cost of a breach can have material impact on the financial
