Encrypt your data to protect your organization.
Avoid costly breach mitigation requirements.
Beginning May 25, 2018, all organizations controlling or processing personal data associated with European Union residents must implement Data protection by Design and by Default to ensure the proper collection, processing storage and erasure of such data. What is personal data? Just about anything that can be used to identify a living being. It includes a name, photo, email address, IP address, biometric data, physical, psychological, economic, social, political, or gender preference information—and more. Failure to do so can result in significant fines of up 20M Euros or 4% of annual turnover (total revenue).
Key provisions of the regulation require designing-in data protection practices for any digital systems working with the personal data of an EU subject whether or not those systems are actually located within the EU. Article 33 requires notification of a data breach to a supervisory authority within 72 hours after becoming aware of the activity. These reports must describe the extent of the data loss, likely consequences of the data breach, and measures proposed to be taken to mitigate the breach. Most likely a considerable undertaking for any organization, these actions can otherwise by avoided by implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures applied to personal data as stated in Article 34. Using a robust data encryption solution to render the data unintelligible can save organizations time, expense, embarrassment and potential loss of brand equity.
