The Ever-Changing Threat Landscape
With smart devices transforming the way we work in a mobile-first, cloud-first world, managing identities & devices, protecting information and operating in an ever changing ‘attack’ landscape presents considerable challenges.
GCI see the biggest threats to today’s enterprises as the twin challenges of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Bring-Your-Own-Device phenomenon (BYOD).
General Data Protection Regulation:
The new General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on May 25th 2018, requiring every business handling personal data to meet stringent new requirements or face hefty fines. Significantly, organisations will have an obligation to perform data erasure in response to individuals exercising their ‘right to be forgotten’ – that is, the right to withdraw their consent to you storing or using their personal data.
Bring Your Own Device:
Mobile devices are transforming the world of work. This presents a massive opportunity for companies large and small. Companies must embrace change and drive innovation to succeed in the evolving business and IT landscape. People want the freedom to work anywhere, at any time. They want to use a range of devices – whether personal or corporate – through which they expect easy and secure access to all their applications and data.
Your Organisation’s Challenge is Considerable:
Keeping corporate data secure is vital. But the statistics are surprising:
