On 18th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force and affect the way that personal data of EU citizens is handled. It will strengthen existing data protection laws, stipulate mandatory breach notification, have higher fines for non-compliance and data loss, but, most importantly, give individuals greater control on how their personal data is handled.

In a recent Ponemon study, when asked about compliance, 74% of respondents were most concerned about complying with the GDPR whilst only about half of organisations represented in this research have allocated budgets and started to prepare for these new regulations.

When it comes to boardroom discussions, a survey of FTSE 350 companies carried out by the UK Government showed that only 13% of respondents stated GDPR is a regular consideration at board level.

At Citrix, our approach to security centres on the following principles:

  • Centralise apps and data so data is not stored on endpoint devices
  • Containerise mobile data to protect it when data must be distributed
  • Context-aware policies to precisely control access to data
  • Analytics to provide user-behaviour visibility and unite IT infrastructure
