First to Address the Time & Complexity Challenge of GDPR Compliance and Data Protection in the Cloud

SAN JOSE, CA – May 25, 2017 — / — With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance deadline just one year away, CipherCloud, the leader in cloud security, data protection and governance, today announced its new GDPR Solution Center to help large enterprises in highly regulated industries with a 12-month actionable roadmap for GDPR compliance.

Complying with GDPR is a complex and time consuming process. Many organizations are still scrambling to understand the new data protection requirements and implement effective technology and controls and have one year to get it done. According to a recent Osterman Research survey, 72 percent of users don’t feel ready to meet the new GDPR requirements.

Data protection is one of the most critical aspects of GDPR, yet as enterprises move to the cloud, the ability to protect and maintain control over private information becomes infinitely more challenging. Data protection requirements include encryption, pseudonymization, key management, breach notification, and security by design and default.

“Any business with data in the cloud needs to take adequate precautions and controls,” said Fazal Sadikali, Director, Cloud First at Accenture. “Customer-controlled encryption provides persistent control and helps you meet a wide range of regulations, including the GDPR.”
