Citrix: General Data on Global Endpoints (GDPR)

General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR), the new European privacy law aimed at safeguarding personal data, takes effect in the spring of 2018 and applies to companies, anywhere in the world, that do business with customers in Europe.

This article is the first in a series that will address the upcoming GDPR deadline — May 25, 2018 — and how Citrix can help secure personal data on mobile endpoints.

The need for global communication makes accounting for personal data on global endpoints a significant consideration for organizations that must comply with GDPR. Citrix XenMobile is a market leading Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) component of the Citrix Secure Digital Workspace. This blog will give an overview of GDPR summarizing pertinent terms and concepts, and outline some of the key challenges that mobility presents to organizations that must comply with GDPR. In subsequent installments, we will do a deep dive into the ways XenMobile can solve each of those challenges and protect personal data on mobile endpoints.

Commonalities that Help Break Down the 99 Articles of GDPR
GDPR is described in chapters and “articles”, or subsections that describe specific requirements, not to be confused with “articles” found in periodicals. There are 99 articles, yet there is commonality among several, including those pertaining to:

  • Locate – there are several articles within the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that pertain to where personal data is obtained, where and how it’s used. They focus on activities such as identifying locations where personal data is stored, categorize types of personal data, and catalog of processing activities how and where personal data is obtained and used.
  • Manage – another set of articles pertain to governance, input, and processing of personal data. They focus on activities, such as restricting processing of personal data to a defined scope, the discontinuation, and erasure of personal data as requested, and outline requirements for a data protection officer to oversee a governance program.
  • Monitor – some articles pertain to monitoring the use and export of personal data. They focus on activities such as tracking, and recording personal data processing, transfer of data in and out of the EU.
  • Secure – and another batch of articles pertain to securing personal data throughout its enterprise life. They focus on activities such as data protection and privacy by design and default, confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of personal data including securing personal data through encryption, and the need to detect, and respond to data breaches.
