Cybersecurity solutions for compliance for GDPR compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) poses considerable challenges for companies in implementing the technical and organizational measures necessary for compliance with the regulations. These include those that ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of systems and services. In addition, they must implement procedures for regularly reviewing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the technical and organizational measures to ensure security in data processing.

Which GDPR regulations are relevant for enterprises?

Organizations must ensure the availability and accessibility of personal data in the event of physical or technical incidents and provide for recovery possibilities in case of data loss. In addition, they must implement procedures for regularly reviewing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the technical and organizational measures to ensure security in data processing.

The GDPR requirements with regard to security call for new obligations. Both authorities and companies must include documentation and process adjustment tasks in their work routine. This includes technical and organizational measures (TOM) for data protection and the protection of personal data.

What is the impact of the GDPR on cyber security?

The principle of accountability of the GDPR obliges organizations and enterprises to be compliant in requirements for IT security and data protection. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity offers a broad portfolio of IT security solutions. This includes solutions for secure endpoints, networks, clouds and web applications. The latter supports the technical implementation of the GDPR in enterprises.

What content of the GDPR is relevant for IT security?

Article 24 of the GDPR states that technical and organizational measures for data protection are to be taken. The supervisory authority can demand proof of the measures taken. According to Article 32, organizations must take measures to ensure an adequate level of protection. They need to consider state of the art technology as well as the implementation costs. Additionally, the nature, circumstances and purpose of the data processing are relevant. Organizations need to be prepared for the probability and severity of a data protection incident.

What effect does the GDPR requirement for permission (data processing only with the consent of data subjects) have on IT?

For companies: Double-opt-in procedure and complete archiving or documentation of consent, for example, to receive company newsletters.

What effects does data minimization (processing of data must be limited to what is necessary for the purpose) have on IT?

Companies must carefully review and, if necessary, make software and database corrections to ensure that only data essential to electronic processing or processes (e.g. in HR) is collected.

What is the impact of purpose limitation (data is only collected & processed for specific purposes) on IT?

IT departments need to define a deletion of data by a process that is clear and transparent for all parties involved. This can include, for example, application documents at the end of the application process.

What effects does data security (for data processing, suitable technical and organizational measures must be in place to protect against data misuse) have on IT?

Processes must be clear and focused on the topic of security and data protection. Companies might be obliged to provide evidence at very short notice and must document data processing processes accordingly.

What effects does transparency (people have a right to know if and what kind of data has been collected about them) have on IT?

Good documentation is also mandatory here, so that companies can react to these questions in accordance with the law.
