The Foundation for GDPR Compliance and PII Protection: Understand Where Data Resides and Who Processes It
What many companies often fail to realize is that this data is no longer stored in specialized and properly secured silos such as databases - in fact, the vast majority of their business information is unstructured and distributed across multiple separate systems ranging from file servers to communications systems to cloud storage services. Without consistent access control in all these environments, organizations lose the ability to identify information owners, monitor access to sensitive data, and identify security and compliance issues such as excessive privileges or suspicious user activity.

Records of Processing Activity (RoPAs or GDPR Article 30) documentation of data flows is a key compliance requirement. The challenge that many organizations face is that their current approach based on surveying stakeholders is time-consuming, manual and impressionistic at best. Because the output is also divorced from the data, enterprises that are required to produce documentation for regulators and auditors are constantly playing catch up - and cannot transition to a 'continuous compliance' model as prescribed under the EU GDPR. 

By contrast, a data-driven approach can automate the building and maintenance of processing activity reports based on machine insights that incorporate human input, ensuring record keeping accuracy while simplifying collaborative business context augmentation. This approach offers benefits in terms of automation, but also provides a path to privacy assurance - and a systematic approach to the GDPR principle of accountability for both internal stakeholders as well as auditors and regulators. 

Join this webinar to learn more about:

  • Why RoPAs are critical to compliance
  • How to better automate the process through integration of business stakeholder input and data-driven insights
  • Detecting unstructured data in your IT systems and identifying data owners
  • Application of uniform governance guidelines in heterogeneous IT landscapes
  • Automate security and compliance controls to ensure real-time problem resolution

In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about the need for getting a grip on PII, beyond GDPR. Data Governance and Continuous Compliance must become an integral element of the IT Risk Management and IT Security Architecture.

In the second part, Nimrod Vax, Chief Product Officer at BigID, will speak about the capabilities to automate data processing reports, how they fit into a continuous compliance model with services and technology partners, and the concept or privacy assurance.

API Security: Separating Truth from Fiction

APIs (application programming interfaces) have undergone a truly amazing transformation in recent years. From an obscure technical term only software developers were familiar with, they have developed into one of the foundations of today’s digital business. Nowadays, APIs are everywhere – they enable business communications with partners and customers, make applications from different vendors work together seamlessly, power large IoT networks and the whole cloud. For many companies, APIs have even become the very foundation of their business models and the primary source of income.
