In Union countries, institutions should use encryption solutions as of May 2018. The regulation does not only concern EU countries. Binds those who process personal data of EU citizens and do business with EU countries.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation, which will come into force in May 2018 within the European Union (EU), defines and enforces the encryption of their data by corporations and companies as an important cyber security measure.
Encrypting data is mandatory for everyone
This regulation is especially important against cyber thieves who encode data into computer networks and demand money from their owners to decrypt it.
The General Data Protection Regulation and its obligations do not focus solely on EU-based enterprises. These changes will affect every business that processes personal data of EU citizens, does business with EU countries, inside or outside the EU.
In other words, all Turkish companies that have commercial relations with European countries will have to take into account the requirements of this regulation in order to continue their business.
David Tomlinson, Endpoint Encryption Manager at ESET, which provides companies with an encryption solution to meet the requirements of the regulation, said: The need for a quality solution has never been more important since next year will be a radical revolution in encryption. ”
ESET, the largest information security organization in the central EU, started its preparations early and acquired DESLock, UK-based, two years ago. DESlock provided easy and strong encryption or, in other words, encryption for companies of all sizes.
