Cylance has announced that it is now offering General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) assessments, providing advisory and supporting services to help companies establish provable GDPR compliance. Through this service, Cylance consultants will also help identify security gaps that fall outside the compliance chain.
“The launch of GDPR in Europe, the signing of the Japanese Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI), and the Brazilian Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados (LGPD) started a global shift toward comprehensive data privacy regulations, said Cylance Chief Privacy Officer Greg Silberman. “This is just the beginning. With the California Consumer Privacy Act set to go into effect in 2020 and the possibility of national U.S. data privacy regulations looming on the horizon, now is the time for organizations to take data protection seriously, regardless of whether or not they’re required to comply with GDPR.”
In addition to short-term GDPR compliance, organizations of all sizes need programs to address data privacy rules in multiple jurisdictions to enable them to effectively mitigate reputational and financial costs of a breach.
This service provides needed resources for organizations that don’t have the IT and personnel budgets to meet compliance regulations on their own. Many global organizations still fail to adhere to the regulations, mistakenly believing that compliance only affects large organizations.
