LogRhythm launches module to help in GDPR compliance

By

American security intelligence company LogRhythm has released a module to make its security solution fully compliant with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation that is scheduled to come into force on 25 May.

The company said in a statement that companies which collected and processed the personal data of EU citizens, the LogRhythm GDPR Compliance Module offered "a robust, pre-built suite of rules, alerts, and reports specifically mapped to GDPR Articles".

"By implementing LogRhythm’s GDPR Compliance Module, organisations can protect their customers’ personal data, avoid negative publicity, prevent loss of customer confidence and avoid fines," it added.

Non-compliance with the GDPR will result in fines of up to €20 million or 4% of an offending organisation’s annual global revenue.

“Given the breadth of the GDPR, no single solution provides automatic compliance with all aspects of the regulation. In fact, there are more people and process requirements to the regulation than technology,” said James Carder, chief information security officer and GDPR data protection officer at LogRhythm.

“The LogRhythm GDPR Compliance Module offers a simplified approach towards meeting this new regulation by providing a fundamental security framework designed to help organisations address the technology requirements of the GDPR.

"This framework helps organisations reduce risk, avoid fines and preserve their ability to conduct business in and with the EU.”

The company claimed that its GDPR Compliance Module was the first solution to offer "an integrated approach towards demonstrating compliance with technology-focused GDPR articles".

It said that its customers would not be charged anything additional for the compliance module.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?
