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
results of the firm. This trend toward increasingly onerous statutory demands will continue, as the U.S. is now considering the Data Privacy Act, which will bring more scrutiny and accompanying penalties for breaches involving

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. As a result, customers are asking more questions during the buying cycle about how their data is captured, used, transferred, shared, stored, and destroyed. In last year’s study (Cisco 2018 Privacy Maturity Benchmark Study), Cisco introduced data and insights regarding how these privacy concerns were negatively impacting the buying cycle and timelines. This year’s research updates those findings and explores the benefits associated with privacy investment.

With data breaches at an all-time high, the time is now for organisations to identify and protect all personal EU data, and drive towards compliance to the GDPR–failure to do so will lead to significant disruption of business. What’s more, adhering to a compliance and standards based framework can ultimately help the business attract and retain more customers. In the case of the GDPR, compliance demonstrates the organisation’s investments in security, privacy, and customer care.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a paradigm shift in the way companies across the globe must approach protecting personal data. As of May 2018, EU data subjects now have greater autonomy than ever before over how their personal information is collected, stored and shared – and the repercussions for companies that fail to comply will be significant.
At the heart of the matter lies Data Security and Protection. Protect the personal data, and you are well on your way to tackling many of the challenges the GDPR presents. But this is no easy task – before you protect your data, you must understand it, and even once you’ve achieved these goals, continually re-evaluate your data privacy and protection posture to adapt to changes in this dynamic environment.
A big part of GDPR compliance will focus on how data is collected going forward. But a substantial emphasis will fall on the data businesses already hold. With many mainframes containing generations-old data, a manual data audit is completely unrealistic. That’s where CA comes in. CA Data Content Discovery enables organizations to find, classify and protect mission essential mainframe data—three valuable steps toward achieving GDPR compliance.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect May25, 2018. If you process European Union (EU) personal data, GDPR likely applies to you—even if you’re not in the EU. That’s because the regulation is truly global in scope and applies to any organization that processes EU personal data, irrespective of where the companies are based or where the data is processed.
At its heart, the GDPR legislation is about ensuring privacy is respected as a fundamental right and that personal data is kept private and secure. Elizabeth Denham, of the EU Information Commissioner Office (ICO), says “This law is not about fines. It’s about putting the consumer and citizen first” and “Issuing fines has always been and will continue to be, a last resort.”
However, it’s important to note the costs of noncompliance can be severe. These can include a fine of up to 4 percent of global turnover (revenues) or €20m, whichever is higher; a temporary or permanent suspension of the right to access or proce

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be upon us on May 25th 2018, and contrary to enduring public opinion, Brexit won’t make any difference. The GDPR comes in response to global shuffling of privacy laws to meet the growing demands of cloud, data security and other technological needs. The US Safe Harbor framework has been replaced with Privacy Shield, and on top of this is the e-Privacy Regulation, which takes specific interest in electronic communications, cookies for tracking user behaviour online, and other issues around personal data and consent.
