General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Protect your business and consumers from data breaches by complying with GDPR

Bringing the best ideas to the table

What is GDPR?

The GDPR includes guidelines that organizations have to follow if they’re impacted by a data breach. This includes: 

  • Notify personal data breaches likely to present a risk to data subjects to DPAs without undue delay and within 72 hours, if feasible, after becoming aware of the breach. 
  • Communicate high-risk breaches to affected data subjects without undue delay. 

Managing discussing on the couch

The GDPR defines a personal data breach as “a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data.” The guidelines add that this even includes an incident that results in personal data being only temporarily lost or unavailable. 

13% of companies have had more than 20 data breaches that were required to be reported under GDPR, while only 10% of those data breaches were reported to the regulator, according to Experian’s Annual Data Breach Preparedness Study, conducted by Ponemon Institute.

To avoid consequences for not adhering to GDPR compliance, including fine and more, businesses must make sure they’re equipped with the data privacy protection solutions they need.
