On 25 May 2018, the long-awaited European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will finally come into force. It represents nothing short of the biggest shake-up in privacy laws in a generation: a seismic event for organisations around the world which handle data on European citizens. Most importantly, it will place strict new requirements on these firms to protect customer data and notify quickly if they’ve been breached – or else risk huge fines.
With breaches the norm rather than the exception today, it will therefore become more important than ever to spot attacks on the datacentre as early on in the kill chain as possible. And have the right set of advanced, automated tools to support a speedy, effective response.
