The cloud revolution is opening up new opportunities for organizations to embrace emerging technologies, rethink business models and improve the lives of employees and customers, but it also has a darker side – increased security risks.

The recent Accenture case is a harsh reminder of how organizations today must apply strict data governance controls. According to Upguard Security, highly critical data assets including security secret API data, authentication credentials, certificates, decryption keys, customer information and more, were stored on exposed AWS S3 buckets.

Today, security professionals must increasingly strike a balance between overseeing routine business needs and managing long-term security risks. Just as the cyber threat evolves, so should the governance and policies associated to it.

CloudSense is the world first AI-driven data governance platform. Its out-of-the-box security policies allow the security team to automatically detect and mitigate exposed sensitive data, as happened in the Accenture incident.

Cloud governance is central to D.Day Labs’ offering, and we are committed to making sure that sensitive data will not fall into the wrong hands.

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) presents the most ambitious and comprehensive changes to data protection rules in 20 years, with fines reaching up to 4% of annual turnover. The GDPR applies to all companies worldwide that process data assets of EU citizens and comes into force on May 25th, 2018.

Where to start the journey towards GDPR compliance?

Form a task group that will gather all the relevant stockholders together. The CISO, CIO, CRO and the compliance officers should outline a plan to achieve compliance. The good news is that in most enterprises, existing IT solutions and the cyber-security tools can support GDPR compliance. For more information please refer to the attached presentation.

How does DataSense help?

D.Day Labs’ DataSense is a comprehensive data management platform that covers most of the GDPR data-related requirements. It automatically discovers and maps sensitive records in every data repository (such as file silos, databases and even cloud storage). The core technology uses advanced machine learning algorithms that classify and extract the most important properties of every data record (for example – PIIs – Personally Identifiable Information).

The artificial intelligence replaces the human factor, so the manual and tedious work of locating, classifying and indexing PIIs is no longer required. We have consulted with top GDPR experts and curated an out-of-the-box GDPR policy (as part of DataSense’s policy center). Once applied, the enterprise immediately meets GDPR requirements and is notified on compliance violations. DataSense also automatically enforces the data protection policy on end points and servers For more information please refer to our whitepaper.
