The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect in May of 2018 and applies to all organizations, regardless of location, that process or store personal data of EU data subjects. With the deadline fast approaching – and potentially significant fines for noncompliance of up to 4% of annual gross revenue or €20 million (~$24 million), whichever is greater – organizations around the world are ramping up compliance efforts.
The text of the GDPR spells out a number of largely prescriptive security requirements. Notably, Article 32 directs organizations to identify risk, implement “appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk,” and regularly test and evaluate those measures.
Tenable can help organizations meet the risk identification, testing and evaluation aspects of Article 32, as well as a number of other challenges affecting both Data Controllers and Data Processors. Furthermore, within Articles 37-39, the GDPR outlines the role and activities of a Data Protection Officer (DPO). Tenable also offers capabilities that support this role, notably for assessing host discovery, vulnerability management and policy compliance.
