Getting Ready for GDPR Compliance in 2018
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a regulation that requires businesses to protect the personal data and privacy of customer data. As of 25th May 2018, GDPR is expected to set a new standard for data privacy and protection rights and non-compliance could cost companies stiff financial penalties.
Under GDPR, you will need to prove that you can restore missing data, list backed up data, locate data and manage your data. Thus, any audited organization without a genuine data backup solution will be at risk of being penalized.
Here is a list of some best practices to comply with GDPR in 2018:
Data Backup – Manage and safeguard your backups using professional tools tailored to company needs. It is also essential to recycle datasets automatically after backup retention periods complete.
Data Storage – To ensure data protection, it is important to manage data storage media. Manage backup sets with short-term retention on disk and long-term on tape or public clouds.
Data Accessibility – Under GDPR rules, data needs to be accessible, deletable and easy to locate. Inbuilt cataloguing tools can help organizations to isolate backed up data, locate, delete and transfer personal data.
Data Security – Data should be encrypted and accessible to those with specifically defined access rights. This means user access needs to be tightly controlled for both backup and restoration operations.
