What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?

The European General Data Protection Regulation went into effect in May 2018 and organizations globally face dramatic increases in requirements to protect private information and severe penalties for breaches. Although it was created by the EU, the GDPR will have international reach, covering the personal information of European citizens – wherever it is distributed globally.

GDPR Challenges

Multinational corporations face the most difficult challenges to successfully meet GDPR compliance. GDPR compliance requires that each line of business, compliance team, information technology staff, and the security operations center team reach alignment on new operating procedures and corresponding changes to IT infrastructure, applications, and security.

The GDPR mandates that businesses protect personal data regardless of its location, which puts significant pressure on enterprises that rely on SaaS applications such as Salesforce, ServiceNow, SAP SuccessFactors, Adobe, Office 365 (SharePoint, OneDrive), Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, among others. CipherCloud’s award-winning Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB+) brings one, consistent, unified cloud security solution that can help you meet the top GDPR challenges.
