Data Protection & GDPR

The data security landscape is rapidly changing. As organisations harness the power offered by personal data, increasingly smart cybercriminals are intent on stealing or compromising that data. Compliance with the EU’s GDPR from May 2018 is thus both a regulatory requirement and a strategic imperative.

Start preparing now to avoid the risk of GDPR non-compliance

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a comprehensive reform of existing data security measures. It requires a significant change in the way organisations manage personal data in today’s digital operating environment. GDPR encompasses data protection management, reporting and accountability, including a requirement to notify of data breaches. Non-compliance could lead to fines of 4% of an organisation’s total worldwide annual turnover or 20 million euro – whichever is higher.

A consistent GDPR roadmap with operational outcomes

As part of its Global Data protection & GDPR offering, Capgemini proposes technology solutions which are applicable to existing, legacy and new digital systems to address the key aspects of Data Protection:

  • Database Security to protect data assets, at the core of any security strategy
  • Identity and Access Management, to plainly benefit from the opportunity given by the digital transformation
  • High availability and resilience solutions to ensure business continuity and long-term protection

Drawing on global experience across diverse industries

With end-to-end data security capabilities, Capgemini has a deep understanding of the GDPR, its associated business issues, and relevant technology solutions. We classify and process data according to its level of sensitivity, and help IT security teams define policies and governance frameworks for enhanced privacy and controls. We also work with Data Protection Officers to set out the roles, organisation, and IT requirements for protecting data assets (at rest, in motion, in use) and meeting GDPR requirements.
