General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018, Technical Considerations


The GDPR must be followed by all companies that collect data on citizens in the EU Countries from May 25th 2018. The GDPR mostly focuses on procedures and processes - as opposed to technology, however there are some technology themes to support processes that need to be followed in order to comply. A lot of the detail is left to interpretation, however the themes include:


  • Firewalls
  • Security layers
  • User access control
  • Software updates (patch management)
  • Real-time protection anti-malware
  • Data encryption
  • Intrusion detection (data breach detection)
