Bescherming van persoonsgegevens tijdens monitoring

De boetes liegen er niet om: vier procent van de omzet met een maximum van twintig miljoen euro. En de raad van bestuur is hoofdelijk aansprakelijk. Met een Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, die straks streng gaat handhaven, hebben we het hier niet over bangmakerij. Hoe zorg je ervoor dat de kans op een boete of reputatieschade tot het minimum beperkt wordt? Door de bescherming van persoonsgegevens tot prioriteit nummer één te maken. De burger/patiënt/consument staat in de GDPR namelijk centraal.

Netwerk monitoring zal ook aan deze norm moeten voldoen. NETSCOUT® monitoring and security solutions, met in het bijzonder nGenius® Packet Flow System (PFS) zorgt ervoor dat er zichtbaarheid (visibility) ontstaat voor bedrijven, die voldoet aan de regelgeving, of dit nu cloud- , hybride- of lokale netwerken zijn is om het even.

Allot cloudtrends rapport q2 2015

Allot Cloudtrends report Q2 2015

Elk kwartaal brengt Allot Communications het CloudTrends rapport uit. Allot baseert het rapport op de analyse van het netwerkverkeer van bedrijven, instellingen, scholen (universiteiten) en service providers. De editie Q2/2015 heeft een focus op security in cloud omgevingen. De belangrijkste conclusie van het rapport is dat door de toename in mobiliteit en het gebruik van cloud applicaties medewerkers vaak onbewust en onbedoeld toegang tot gevoelige bedrijfsinformatie geven. Het gebruik van sociale netwerken, file sharing, instant messenging en versleutelde proxy's opent achterdeuren naar het bedrijfsnetwerk voor hackers en kwaadaardige content. Naast dat dit verkeer een negatieve invloed op het netwerk heeft en de productiviteit beïnvloed, kan het voor de organisatie allerlei (reputatie) schade veroorzaken.
