GDPR, a set of regulations that places new restrictions on how companies handle personal data, is about much more than just updating privacy policies. With more and more cyber-attacks in the headlines, the way people are protecting their data has become more crucial, and GDPR marks the turning point in security policies and is redefining the way we protect data.
We’re happy to announce that Coalfire Systems, Inc., a leading independent industry provider of IT security, governance, and regulatory compliance services, has validated that the Deep Instinct Real-time Threat Prevention Platform is suitable to meet the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for protection of personal data.
Our real-time threat prevention platform predicts and prevents known and unknown malware, across multiple vectors, and provides true adaptive defenses against the most advanced cyberattacks.
The European Union (EU) GDPR replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy, and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.
The GDPR not only applies to organizations located within the EU, but also applies to organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to monitor the behavior of EU data subjects. It also applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the EU, regardless of the company’s location.
According to Coalfire, “Deep Instinct supports GDPR Article 32 and 33 by recording any relevant activities (detected or blocked) that could result in a breach. The Deep Instinct UI console provides details about malware activities that were detected or prevented. Malware events can be investigated further to confirm when the event occurred, the status of event, the type, threat severity, lifecycle of the event, process chain information, and the affected device details of what happened.”
Coalfire conducted the validation by completing a multi-faceted technical assessment which included technical testing, reviewing the architecture of the endpoint solution, compliance validation and additional testing to cover macOS and the behavioral analysis feature developed for Windows.
“GDPR has made major headlines in 2018 and will continue to do so. Deep Instincts Threat Protection Platform is an advanced technical measure that can support a robust cyber defense strategy” Said Nick Trenc, Practice Director at Coalfire. “A robust cyber defense strategy is a vital component to ensuring the privacy of personal data is maintained.”
By using deep learning, the most advanced AI technology to prevent threats that can steal private information from company employees and customers, we remain committed to delivering the highest level of protection.
