A new wave of Privacy and Data Protection Regulations pushes the organisations to the edgeMarch 21, 2019 |Data Privacy, GDPR
Every company/industry is facing challenges to comply with General Data Protection Regulation with stringent data protection rules. According to a national practice director for security in the Cloud and Data Center Transformation division of insight, Jason Rader. “No one knows what the next law will be or whether it will be a state, federal or even global one, but it seems inevitable that new regulations are coming.”
Before GDPR enactment in Europe, the US Federal Government had promulgated a national-level data privacy regulations same as GDPR. New regulations are bringing new requirements with the passage of time. As a best practice, businesses ought to build on the GDPR to meet compliance deadlines.
“They already have taken a hard look at their types of data and how they collect, store, and use it. Now they should be leveraging that momentum and taking things to the next level to understand that the necessary controls — firewalls, encryption, policies, etc., — are in place, the rationale behind each control’s selection, its maturity in adoption, and its effectiveness in operations”, Rader highlighted the facts. Similarly, the next requirements will help to identify the gap. However, these practices have long been introduced. There are mounds of organisations who choose to be inconsiderate. This reflects their roguish behaviour and unplanned strategies.
Indeed organisations have been endeavouring to be GDPR compliant, but still, there are rooms for uncertainty. The companies who suffered a major data breaches were compliant to some standard. Taking a few extra steps in the process could have a material effect on an organisation’s overall security posture.”
For better outcomes companies are taking initiatives to comply with emerging regulations and to generate new approaches to data protection and compliance.
