The EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Why you need to start taking data protection seriously - and how ESET can help


Complying with the GDPR: the role of encryption

If you do operate in the EU, the new General Data Protection Regulation will almost certainly affect you. It doesn’t come into force until May 2018, but its implications are complex and the potential penalties for non-compliance severe. Encrypting data that you hold is one way to help you meet the new data security rules. Read on to find out how encryption can help you comply.

How our encryption solution works to help you comply with the GDPR

By securely encrypting the personal data records you hold, your business or organisation can protect itself in the event of a system breach. That�s because such incidents are much less likely to be regarded by regulatory authorities as a compliance failure if the data is properly encrypted. ESET Endpoint Encryption uses a combination of public and private keys to make encryption as simple and powerful as possible for organizations of all sizes.
