Beyond the Deadline: How GDPR Will Impact Your Company's Risk and Security Profile

eWeek's Chris Preimesberger and Sean Michael Kerner discuss how preparations for the EU's GDPR will go a long way toward improving your organization's IT hygiene in the long run.


The May 2018 deadline for compliance with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is receiving a lot of attention, and rightfully so. But regardless of where your organization stands with regard to its GDPR preparations, the work it puts into GDPR compliance will greatly improve the overall security and risk profile of the business going forward.

In fact, many of the GDPR requirements can be mapped directly to best practices for reducing your IT risk, including techniques and technologies designed to improve authentication, increase visibility with analytics, and make it easier to perform governance, risk and compliance (GRC) functions.
