Sample GDPR security solutions to help you:

  • Challenge #1
  • Challenge #2
  • Challenge #3
  • Challenge #4
  • Challenge #5

Challenge

The growing size and frequency of cyber-attacks is amongst the driving forces for stricter personal data protection regulations throughout the EU and beyond. Organisations now have greater liability for the personal data they control and process, including the implementation of appropriate security standards.

Solution

DDoSX®

UKFast's DDoSX® protects your business from the ever-increasing threat of attack. With DDoSX® in place, an attack is not only identified and redirected away from your web server, keeping your business online and functional and your data protected, but thoroughly investigated.

Challenge

All businesses must report a data breach to the relevant supervisory authority without undue delay and within 72 hours of learning of a breach. The data processor must inform the data controller of a breach without undue delay. Organisations must have the internal resources and processes to detect and investigate breaches, including an incident response plan.

Solution

Threat Monitoring

UKFast continuously monitors and reports on the security of your solution, flagging malicious attempts to access your IT environment through vulnerability scans, file integrity monitoring and Rootkit detection with detailed reports and live alerting.

Challenge

The GDPR requires businesses to implement appropriate protective technical measures. Organisations are required to secure their infrastructure against the most basic and common attacks such as viruses, Trojans and specific ransomware. Monitoring for these attacks in real time is paramount for implementing the basic security required.

Solution

Anti-virus

UKFast's managed anti-virus platform with the latest signatures ensures you are protected against known and emerging viruses.

Challenge

Businesses are storing an ever-increasing volume of user-data which presents a lucrative target for cyber criminals. Under GDPR, every organisation is responsible for ensuring their applications are built and designed with data protection in mind, to ensure the security of the data being processed.

Solution

WAF

Continually reviewing your website's applications is time consuming and increases the opportunity for human error to strike. A web application firewall (WAF) is designed to protect your data and applications by blocking suspicious activity and providing comprehensive security for critical applications.

Challenge

Whilst alerting the ICO of a data breach is a minimum requirement, if it is not stopped as quickly as possible, businesses risk the adverse effects of extended damage to the integrity of their data. Taking appropriate steps to limit data loss greatly reduces the threat of both financial and reputational damage.

Solution

Threat Response

Threat Response adds a specialist security team to your threat monitoring alerts. Our dedicated in-house security team actively monitors your solution for threats and attempted breaches as they happen. Working with your consent and full visibility, the team responds quickly to incidents to mitigate potential issues.
