The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new regulation in Europe that will come into force on May 25th, 2018. Its objective is to further strengthen data protection for individuals and to harmonize the law in this area across the European Union. Enforcement of the regulation will be backed by heavy fines. Organizations that deal with data on a global scale will need to review their data lifecycle and put in place processes and technology to be compliant.
Adoption of and adherence to GDPR obligations requires a thorough approach. CA can help with a complete set of targeted software solutions.
Protect your data at every point in the application lifecycle through test data management.
Test data management (TDM) – the process of providing, distributing and managing test data for development teams – takes on more urgency as the GDPR deadline looms.
Solid TDM practices are key to overcoming compliance hurdles and avoiding huge fines. By using synthetic data, organizations will avoid the pitfalls associated with masking production data.
Find, classify and protect sensitive data to simply facilitate regulatory compliance.
Over 70 percent of data resides on the mainframe, making a manual audit seem impossible. That’s where CA Data Content Discovery comes in. CA Data Content Discovery finds, classifies and protects to give you more control of your sensitive data to help you achieve GDPR compliance and reduce risks.
Secure your data with a focus on Trusted Digital Identities and Breach Alerts.
The GDPR requires companies to notify all the supervisory authority of data breaches—whether malicious or accidental—within 72 hours after discovery of the breach, where feasible, unless the breach is unlikely to result in a risk to individuals. In addition, companies will have to notify individuals without delay where the breach is likely to result in a high risk to them.
Most security breaches involve the use or abuse of privileged credentials, so it’s time to re-evaluate your security architecture and consider built-in security with a focus on digital identities. This approach supports compliance initiatives like GDPR and can contribute to your business transformation.
