How Prot-On can help GDPR compliance?

The General Regulation of Data Protection, GDPR, will begin to apply on May 25, 2018.
Until that moment, companies and organizations dealing with data must establish technical and organizational measures that allow them to be compliant at the time the Regulation is applicable.

The three main functions of Prot-On are: encryption, permission management, and logging of file activity. These three technical measures have a direct impact on:

  • Mitigating the risks identified during the impact assessments
  • Facilitating the Audit and Certification of processes

The application of encryption and access policies on unstructured information (such as reports, spreadsheets, scanned documents, addresses, videos, etc.) is one of the main technical measures for data protection from design and by default as required by Article 25 of GDPR. These measures should be considered in two scenarios:

  • Prior to structured data storage
  • When extracting consolidated information for its treatment

Prot-On facilitates compliance with the concrete requirements that GDPR imposes on the responsible for treatment:

  • Keep records of data treatment activities
  • Implement technical measures such as encryption to mitigate risks

“The Management was aware that something beyond a simple encryption tool was needed to protect the information. Aspects such as the definition and approval of policies that would support the Management commitment were necessary. We discovered Prot-On with a functionality that we did not find in other market solutions and appsec posed a differential deployment methodology.”
