GDPR Compliance

European Union General Data Protection
Regulation (GDPR) Compliance

All organizations globally that collect or process personal data on residents, visitors and expatriates within the European Union are required to comply with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Companies who fail to comply will face stringent penalties of up to 4% of their annual global turnover, or €20 Million (whichever is greater).

The GDPR was adopted to protect the personal data of individuals within the EU. Personal data is defined as any information related to a natural person or ‘Data Subject’, which can be used directly or indirectly to identify the person. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details and posts on social networking websites to medical information or a computer IP address.


The GDPR requires organizations to prevent “accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.”

Safe-T offers a best practice approach to prevent unauthorized access to data services, networks and APIs. This helps to prevent most of the key threats that could lead to GDPR fines: data exfiltration, leakage, malware, ransomware and fraud.
