General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Protect Your Business from GDPR Penalties and Lawsuits
Data privacy regulations require that organizations protect the personal information of customers and employees. If a data breach occurs and personal information is exposed, data privacy regulations impose heavy fines and penalties when a business is found to be out of compliance. In addition, businesses that fail to protect personal information are susceptible to lawsuits from individuals whose data was exposed.
GDPR in particular affects organizations worldwide that hold or process personal data relating to residents in the European Union. Even though GDPR has been around for two years, many organizations are still not prepared to meet the requirements and reduce risk. This is especially true for sensitive data in non-production environments for development, testing, analytics, ML/AI, and reporting, which represent as much as 80% of the attack surface for data breaches and are often less scrutinized from a security perspective.
