GDPR. WHAT IS IT...
...AND HOW DID WE GET HERE?

 

 

 

WHAT DO WE WANT? CONTROL OF DATA

In a nutshell, GDPR gives new rights to EU citizens over their personal data.

WITHDRAW CONTSENT

A right to withdraw consent and easier access to their own data and more...

Understanding the context is key

The responsibility that companies take on when they are given personal data.

They must meet a strict set of criteria in order to prove that they are protecting it.

The Data Detective

There were two drivers!

1

Giving control of data back to the individual - Companies need a valid reason to collect data.

2

GDPR is going to drive uniformity for every country, making it easier to legislate.

No opt in / opt out
you have to comply!

The penalties for non compliance are scary…

We don’t know when the UK will leave Europe , or what their position is going to be.

GDPR refers to the collection and transportation of EU data.

Any organisation which holds or transports EU citizen data will still have to comply with GDPR.

Most UK companies are dealing with EU citizen data in some way shape or form - bank account details, email addresses, sensitive personal information but also IP addresses. (that really expands the scope of who this legislation affects).

It’s also very likely that the UK is going to replace the data protection act of 1988 with something extremely similar to GDPR.

Therefore taking steps to protect your data now, regardless, will have a much greater chance of protecting your business against cyber threats.

It’s a huge step forward in how the world sees data protection.

GDPR is about security processes and managing risk

Technology can't work unless it's accepted into the organisation, and everything works together

Cyber security is thought as being a technology problem - with a technology answer.

However, the bad guys have got clever...

GDPR specifies that organisations have to appoint a data protection officer,who is distinct from a risk officer, and distinct from most other IT functions that currently exist.

Data protection officers have a specific mandate, it’s a role that sits outside of IT and of the boardroom, so they’re not answerable to anyone else other than the regulation.

It’s about ensuring that companies recognise how much responsibility they carry when they collect and transfer other people’s data.

Techniques to help ensure data availability and integrity in the event of a failure.

The more critical the data, the more important it is to protect it.

Podium

But not all data has equal importance.

To quantify data importance, the industry uses the terms “recovery time objective (RTO)” and “recovery point objective (RPO).”

RTO and RPO should be defined for each application and its data.

Hourglass

The RTO is the length of time that you can run your business without access to your data and not incur signifi cant losses. In other words, how soon do you need your data back in the event of a failure?

The RPO is the maximum time period over which you can tolerate data loss or corruption.

Knowing your RTO and RPO will help you incorporate the right level of data protection for your applications from the beginning.
