GDPR: Impacting Multiple Areas of Business

The impact of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, which went into effect in May 2018, is being felt across the globe and across organizations. Intended to protect how personal data is used by organizations, GDPR goes beyond just a traditional customer database. There are issues around how data is used for testing systems; how data is used in marketing campaigns and a person’s ability to opt-out; and, there could be cross-border issues for IT shops with systems in and outside of the European Union. Like many compliance efforts, strong controls for the security and protection of data are critical.


Common GDPR Challenges Our Customers See

Finding data and the risk associated with it

Solution: Find, classify and report on sensitive data stored on mainframes. 

Use of production data for testing purposes

Solution: Utilize CA Test Data Manager PII data discovery and profiling.

Compliance with breach notification requirement

Solution: Get proper governance and monitoring of privileged accounts. 

Securing APIs used to transmit personal data

Solution: Centralize and manage security at the API layer while meeting the most stringent regulatory and compliance standards.

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.

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.

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.
