Information Privacy and Data Protection Regulation

The EU GDPR is Just the Tip of the Iceberg

The EU GDPR Means A New Era for Information Privacy and Security

The case for more rigorous cybersecurity and the protection of personally identifiable information is compelling. Consider the following:

  • The Identity Theft Resource Center found that data breaches have increased 40% from 2015 to 2016, reaching an all-time high of 1,093 in the U.S. alone.
  • The average cost per breach in 2016 is $4 million, up 29% from 2015.
  • The 2016 Telstra Cybersecurity Report found that nearly 60% of organizations surveyed lack sufficient cyber security and privacy staff to handle the increasing demands to address legal compliance and supporting robust information security best practices.
  • In September 2017, credit bureau Equifax -- the very place where many customers go to determine whether their identity has been compromised -- revealed that private information for 145.5 million customers had been compromised. 

These troubling trends are prompting regulators to bolster data security and privacy legislation to impose stricter obligations on businesses and data controllers. The new European Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) is the most immediately visible evidence of what will soon be a tidal wave of national and industry information privacy and security regulations.

Organizations cannot hope to meet this coming wave of regulation by approaching information privacy and security as an afterthought or by applying outdated and manual approaches to a set of problems that simply must be automated.
