Get set for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

With under a year to go to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are you and your customers prepared?

In May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR), a new law, will be implemented across the European Union. When live, companies must notify the relevant authorities within 72 hours of discovering a personal data breach, and, in serious cases, the data subjects affected by the breach must also be notified. The GDPR will also substantially increase fines for data breach involving personal data to €10,000,000 - or 2% of total worldwide annual turnover - whichever is higher!

Unfortunately in-flight data, once considered inherently secure, is vulnerable to criminals that have the ability to tap into fibre connections. In-flight encryption, a long standing tool in the security arsenal, is central to any integrated, end-to-end security strategy.

Only optical transport layer encryption can ensure total protection of all in-flight data, all of the time.

Ciena’s Wavelogic Encryption utilises an always-on encryption approach and the highest security cryptography algorithms available to disguise all data across the network. In-flight encryption makes data unusable to anyone trying to hack you. And with WaveLogic Encryption, it’s simple to deploy and manage.
