General Data Protection Regulation

Security and Privacy by Design

Getting to Compliance with GDPR

The deadline for reaching compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is just around the corner and requires  adoption of improved data security practices, technology and policies for most companies. It boadly classifies personal data as any information that can be directly or indirectly attributed to an individual,

GDPR instructs companies to add new procedures and processes, reporting and communication, as well as improved network security to the latest technology and that provides “situational awareness of risks” and “enables preventative, corrective and mitigating action”.

Clavister can help you build a cyber defense that fullfils many of the requirements set forth in GDPR. As a natural result of this you will also build a stronger company, more ready to take on the opportunity with a more connected business with lower risk of massive security breaches.

GDPR in a Nutshell

IoC's, the key to "Situational Awareness"

The term "Situational Awareness" is central to the GDPR directives and talks about the requirements of routines and capabilities to detect if you had a breach where sensitive information might have been compromised.

Related to the requirements of Situational Awareness is the requirement to report a breach and data loss with 72 hours. Failure to either having adequate situational awareness or reporting within the 72 hours deadline can result in significant fines.

To handle the requirements on "Situational Awareness", Clavister offers multiple products and features. Using our products and features allows you to create Indicators of Compromise (IoC) on any of the stages in the so called "Cyber Kill-Chain".

Next Generation Firewalls, Endpoint Security Client and Multi Factor Authentication


Next Generation Firewall

Clavister's Next Generation Firewalls combine enterprise class firewalling with application recognition and advanced threat protection features that puts you back in control of your network and that helps you reach compliance with the GDPR directives. 

The Clavister NGFW helps you gain risk awareness, prevent intrusions and deploy corrective and mitigating actions.

Endpoint Security Client

The unprecedented rise of new threats has deemed traditional security mechanisms both ineffective and unreliable in providing adequate defense.

Clavister Endpoint Security Client features pro-active detection technology, including 4:th Generation Artificial Intelligence that monitors the behavior of the malwares in addition to classic AV engine techniques. 

By using the Clavister Endpoint Security Client you can protect against intrusions that might result in data leakage that the General Data Protection Regulation act is trying to prevent.

Multi Factor Authentication

Simple combinations of username and passwords are one of the major reasons for larger security incidents and breaches, a situation that can no longer be trusted for protection of business applications and sensitive data such as personal records.

Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) provides the strength of security needed to protect your environment against these issues. With a stronger authentication mechanism you are at lower risk of hackers breaking into the network to extract the valuable information you are trying to protect, which is the true essence of the entire General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) act.
