How can CISOs prepare for GDPR?

The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is constantly under huge pressure to ensure that his/her business is protected from the latest threats, whether that’s the understated “insider threat” (where employees accidentally or intentionally leak information) or the latest strain of ransomware.

That challenge is about to come somewhat harder though, with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) set to radically transform how companies approach data protection, data management and information security.

From the potential threat of huge fines for non-compliance and data breaches to mandatory data breach notifications and stricter rules around the use of personal data, CISOs face a tough job to ensure compliance by the regulation’s effective date of 25 May 2018.

In this new Micro Focus roundtable on GDPR, a panel of industry experts – including current and former CIOs and CISOs – discuss how CISOs must go about ensuring compliance, including:

  • The importance of security teams speaking to line-of-business “in business language”
  • The need for technology tools that can discover the data you hold in real-time

The role of encryption and other technologies when data is stored and in transit.
