CRN: Security Experts Discuss Top Tips Ahead Of GDPR Deadline


New research from Cloud Research Partners finds that 60 percent of businesses are likely to miss the GDPR compliance deadline of May 25th. The research also finds that many companies still lack a deep understanding of the law.

At the RSA Conference in San Francisco, security experts discussed their views on the new regulations, including their top tips and the biggest misconceptions.

“There are many misconceptions.  Some are basically finding crypted data — I’m not liable, which is untrue. Many are, well I’m not a subject company because I’m in the U.S., which is not true,” said Dimitri Sirota, the founder, and CEO of BigID.  “GDPR is much more of a journey than a destination. It requires you for instance to institute personal data rights, things like the right to be forgotten, meaning every person has a legal right to their data.”
