GDPR Requirements and Compliance Services for Your Business

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May of 2018. GDPR impacts organizations residing in the European Union (EU) as well as those that merely transmit EU citizen data, and global companies are working frantically to comply with this sweeping regulation. Adding to the complication, GDPR affects departments enterprise-wide, requiring them to work cross-functionally across the organization. 

Optiv Security assists organizations with GDPR, including the following cybersecurity requirements: 

  • Defines lawfulness of processing data to include consent by data subjects, privacy by design, the right to be forgotten and data portability requirements
  • Outlines responsibilities of both controllers and processors
  • Requires Privacy Impact Assessment and appointment of a Data Protection Officer (DPO)
  • Enforces strict breach notification requirements

Number of DPOs needed to satisfy the GDPR requirement in the U.S.

Maximum number of hours allowed to report a security incident once it has been discovered.

Percentage of U.S. companies reporting they possess EU citizen data and are therefore subject to GDPR.
