General Data Protection Regulation

GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is a regulation aimed at strengthening and unifying data protection for all European citizens. The GPDR applies to every company, whether in the EU or outside, that processes data of EU citizens, thus impacting companies worldwide, even if they don’t operate directly in the European Union.

Getting ready for GDPR is essential to avoid the hefty fines imposed by the EU in case of data breach, it’s also a good occasion to review the security posture of an organization and to scout for valid cyber insurance packages that include, beside the traditional incident response and reputation damages, also any damages derived from loss of personal data which are typically excluded in the most common packages.

It’s essential to identify the correct process, where data is located, how it is accessed and who’s responsible.
