The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU-wide regulation governing data protection, with a strong emphasis on privacy. With potentially significant fines for breaches coming into force from May 2018, ensuring compliance with the GDPR is now essential for any organisation which processes the personal data of EU citizens.
With its focus on privacy and protecting individual’s personal data, identity and access management technologies have a crucial role to play in ensuring compliance with the GDPR. Knowing, and crucially being able to prove, who has access to personal data is a fundamental requirement, as is making sure that access is removed when no longer needed. Additionally, strong authentication methods such as multifactor authentication protects your organisation against weak or compromised credentials, and ensures that only authorised personnel can access personal data.
Beyond this, identity management technologies such as federated authentication have a crucial role to play in other aspects of the GDPR such as consent management.
