With the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) being implemented in the UK next year, many companies are struggling with the ability to comply with these new regulations and other data privacy regulations while continuing to do business at the speed of light. Chris Olson, CEO at The Media Trust commented below.
Chris Olson, CEO at The Media Trust:
“You really can’t talk about managing or securing the digital environment without addressing its ever-changing nature. The internet’s value is in its constant communication; therefore, internet-related assets require a “continuous” security approach. GDPR will be a proving ground for enterprise security strategies especially when it comes to the opaque and dynamic nature of their digital environment. Continuous security will need to apply to not only technology development, but also real-time monitoring of websites and mobile apps. Enterprises will have to move beyond check lists and tick boxes to implement a real-time compliance mechanism to ensure their digital properties don’t surreptitiously collect and share unauthorized consumer data.”
