GDPR as a business enabler

TURN GDPR INTO A BUSINESS ENABLER WITH LOGPOINT

At its core, GDPR (The General Data Protection Regulation) is designed to improve the data privacy of individuals in Europe, which will impact all companies doing business within the EU. Unfortunately, due to the risk of a high penalty and fines, many companies see the GDPR as a restriction and threat to their company and their current way of conducting business. However, going through the GDPR process with the right tools and mindset - just might turn out to be a great business enabler and cost saver to your company. By implementing the LogPoint SIEM solution, your company will comply to some of the critical GDPR requirements:

  • Location of current data and who has access.
  • Tracking of cross-border data flow.
  • Rapid data breach detection.
  • 72-hour breach notification upon detection

HOW LOGPOINT CAN ADD VALUE

LogPoint provides your business with the overview of international data transfers, allowing your security officer to map data movement outside the EU ensuring all transfers take place in a lawful manner. LogPoints ability to automatically detect unusual behavior in networks and applications can be used to support the monitoring and prevention of misuse as well as data breaches, which is at the core of the GDPR. As LogPoint securely stores all relevant event data if a data breach occurs, all evidence is ready, at your fingertips to quickly assess, respond and communicate appropriately.
