The increased data security requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation means businesses have to protect data from unlawful processing and loss or destruction. If you’re struggling with how to ensure and maintain compliance, you’re not alone. But there’s good news, meeting the GDPR’s strict requirements is a lot easier with LogPoint’s “out-of-the-box” GDPR compliance functionality.
How LogPoint adds value
LogPoint allows you to quickly detect unusual behavior in networks and applications to prevent misuse and data breaches. With static rules to detect the knowns, machine learning and advanced analytics to detect “as-is” and unusual activity in the network, it’s much easier to maintain compliance.
With LogPoint, you can:
- Spot and track unauthorized network or systems access
- Identify unusual patterns or rogue employee actions on an individual level
- Empower your security team with analytics
- Enrich and route logs with sensitive data to secure repositories
LogPoint’s many GDPR reports provide critical insight into how your network is actually performing. The reports support GDPR compliance auditing by helping to explain critical data flows and transactions on data, while providing the means to evaluate observed baselines and known-bad behavior. With this accurate, real-time view of the network, you can focus on areas that are non-compliant and plan for the future (or “to-be”) architecture by defining a transition plan.
All LogPoint reports relate directly to the GDPR requirements as well as the ISO/IEC 27000 International Standard.
The information will help ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability of your systems by monitoring your assets containing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and allowing for business investigation into data loss.
