Are you ready for it? The regulation comes into force in May 2018 and it’s going to be huge to borrow a trumped up term. The Regulation will increase the complexity of cyber security greatly. It’s a European Regulation, therefore legally binding, and will apply to most organisations worldwide that hold any personal data on any EU citizen. Brexit doesn’t change anything – we already know that the UK Government will implement the regulation. If you control or process data that includes the personal information of any EU citizen, then the regulation is likely to apply to your organisation. The exceptions are where organisations have an exemption – these apply in state security scenarios rather than for business size or purpose reasons. Outsourcing a process does not absolve you of responsibility for data you control.Is GDPR the same as the Data Protection Act?
No. This is a considerable step up. The DPA was introduced before we had social media or digital business, and at a time when hacking was a computer geek’s hobby rather than a cyber criminal’s occupation. The term ‘identity theft’ didn’t exist and we didn’t live our lives online. GDPR goes well beyond data protection controls. It places data protection obligations on organisations supported by severe fines for failure (up to the greater of €20m or 4% of turnover) and mandatory data breach reporting. It gives consumers greater control over their data, including the right to correct it, to have it deleted or to withdraw consents previously given, all within relatively short timescales.Will it be a problem for me?
This is quite possibly the biggest legislative change in any of our careers. Therefore, we would urge you to begin this process now.
Most organisations with 250+ staff will need to appoint a Data Protection Officer.
In order to meet the timelines of the regulation we would suggest early appointment of your DPO is critical so they can
coordinate the overall plan of action.
The larger and more diverse the organisation, the more complex and challenging this activity becomes.
And because risk is at the heart of the regulation (the standard mentions risk some 75 times) we believe that it is best managed by your risk management system.
Proteus®GDPReady™ helps organisations become and remain compliant with the regulations, providing a roadmap for compliance with recommendations for immediate action.

Proteus®GRCyber™ is the most comprehensive integrated Governance, Risk and Compliance product on the market.
Proteus®GRCyber™ allows you to integrate your existing cyber security systems into a single, integrated, web based, multi-agent cyber protection system. With this capability you can systematically and regularly test each and every control applicable to your business.
We collect every IP packet your network produces. With this information we can build a network chart of your infrastructure and highlight insecure or unmanaged assets. Additionally, you can use our relationship browser to view the modelling of business processes to assets, controls, documentation and incidents.
In the multi-user versions of our product you can link to your active directory and delegate controls around the organisation so that each control is answered by the person responsible for it. This process is more time efficient and accurate in collecting responses, policies and procedures.
You can author your own standards into our compliance engine. These can be bespoke standards or your implementation of an international standard. Furthermore, you can model the relationships between your controls and your ISMS.
Please contact one of our country partners to find out more about or to purchase Proteus®GRCyber™
