Data-Centric Security for GDPR Compliance

In today’s threat landscape, traditional approaches to securing data are falling short. Since 2015 we have seen some of the largest data breaches ever and it is clear that no industry or organization is immune from cyber attacks. The threat landscape is increasingly dangerous, while new technologies are distributing sensitive data farther across locations, devices and repositories. Globalization efforts will make GDPR compliance essential for global companies wherever they are located. The development of a comprehensive data-centric security program, including data discovery, classification, encryption, and file protection, can uniquely position your organization to protect what matters most, and make security move with your data to comply with global regulations such as GDPR.
