The fundamentals of GDPR compliance explained

What steps should an organisation take to comply with GDPR? Cyber security journalist Edward Lucas explains.
According to Edward Lucas from The Economist, the Data Protection Officer (DPO) reporting to the CISO, the General Counsel, or the Chief Risk Officer, will be a key part of any cyber security strategy under the GDPR.
DPOs need to have the authority to make changes to cyber security processes and to invest in cyber defences. The advent of GDPR means organisations need to assess the data they have and their processes to prevent cyber security breaches, and monitor and detect cyber incidents.
At The European Information Security Summit in London, expert speakers addressed 400 information security industry leaders as part of discussions on how to build an agile cyber security culture.
