Co-Founder Kris Lahiri Takes on New Role to Ensure Company-Wide Regulatory Compliance

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – October 19, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Egnyte, the leading cloud provider of smart content collaboration and governance, today announced the appointment of co-founder Kris Lahiri as their new Data Protection Officer (DPO). In Lahiri’s new role, he will be responsible for continuously monitoring Egnyte’s regulatory compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and he will act as the main point of contact for the EU Commission during any audits or reviews.

“With so much more at stake under the new GDPR, we believe that all organizations should make the necessary moves, such as appointing a DPO, in order to ensure complete compliance with the new rules and regulations,” said Kris Lahiri, Data Protection Officer and Co-Founder at Egnyte. “My team and I take tremendous pride in implementing proper procedures and protocols to ensure Egnyte’s compliance with all regulations, not just the GDPR, and we will continue to make sure all of the data we handle is properly managed and secured.”

Under the new GDPR, which will be implemented on May 25, 2018, organizations will be held responsible for the proper handling of individuals’ personal data. For Egnyte, who manages data across all 28 EU countries, GDPR compliance is critical to their business and its customers.

Prior to Lahiri’s appointment he served as Egnyte’s Chief Information Security Officer, responsible for creating and implementing their global information security strategies that protect all customers’ content and users. Prior to Egnyte Lahiri spent many years in the design and deployment of large-scale infrastructures for Fortune 100 customers of Valdero and KPMG Consulting.

With just over six months until the GDPR is fully implemented, Egnyte also announced today the release of their first ever eBook, A Practical Guide to GDPR Compliance. The inaugural eBook is designed to help customers, partners and any other affected organizations ensure they are compliant under the new EU regulation.
