Data Governance Best Practices in the GDPR EraMatt Lock of Varonis on the Need to Have a Baseline for Data Access Behavior
Organizations that must comply with the EU's General Data Protection Regulation are now compelled to ensure they're handling personally identifiable information in a legal manner.
GDPR requires organizations "to make sure that they're aware of the data they hold and that they have a governance model in terms of access and control and accountability. And it's ... a very hard task to do," says Matt Lock of Varonis.
In a video interview at the recent Infosecurity Europe conference in London, Lock discusses:
- Privacy by design;
- Data governance essentials;
- Using data context, access and visibility to create a baseline for behavior and better identify and respond to anomalous events.
Lock, the U.K. technical director for Varonis, has 17 years of experience in the field of network security. Specializing in risk assessment, risk management, policy compliance, security reviews and managing network behavior anomaly systems, Lock now leads Varonis' sales engineering team in the U.K., Ireland and Middle East.
