Comply with EU GDPR, Extend Data Protection and Avoid Steep Fines
The EU General Data Protection Regulation is coming soon and promises severe financial penalties. To avoid millions in fines, make sure your company is protected all the way down to the firmware level with HPE Gen10.
The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming soon, and this compliance mandate really packs a punch: Violators face a penalty of €20 million or 4% of their global annual turnover, whichever is higher.
While the regulation primarily impacts businesses in the EU as well as the UK, U.S. companies that transact and store information pertaining to European consumers and businesses must also comply. With the deadline just around the corner (May 25, 2018), now’s the time to make sure your compliance measures are sufficient.
Compliance helps protect against cyber threats
Preparing for the GDPR can also serve as a catalyst to take critical and potentially overdue steps to increase security and ensure compliance in several areas:
- Compile a complete inventory of sensitive data processed by your company.
- Assess the cost-efficiency and effectiveness of your company’s approach to storing sensitive data.
- Evaluate your data retention and backup capabilities.
- Measure the effectiveness of your overall infrastructure security architecture.
- Determine what’s required to improve data protection cost-efficiency and effectiveness.
