GDPR breaches inflict financial and reputational damage
With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR, in May 2018, businesses will need to make sure that any personal data stored on EU citizens is kept safe. Breaches could lead to sanctions of up to €20 million or 4% of global annual turnover, whichever is the greater. Furthermore, companies will need to disclose data breaches to regulators and in certain cases any affected individuals, within 72 hours of their occurrence. This has the potential to inflict huge damage to both brand reputation and company valuation.
GDPR AND MOBILE SECURITY
A lot of IT departments are primarily focusing on protecting the data within their organization. But there is nothing unusual about an employee using their smartphone or tablet to access sensitive customer or company data.
Now with GDPR, businesses will be obliged to demonstrate that they are implementing all reasonable efforts to protect mobile devices both in terms of physical access to the device, and when the device is being used online to access data. Mobile security will no longer be a nice to have, it will be a necessity.
compliance is not a choice. ignorance is not a defence.
By 2020, 40% of organizations will be in violation of GDPR.
