The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) ("GDPR") is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). Consumers' personal data is the very core and heart of the GDPR and the classification of personal data is broadened under the GDPR. While the regulation applies only to EU citizen data, all companies worldwide that operate in the EU, or have websites that can be found in the EU, must comply with these regulations, truly creating a global impact. This regulation will require material changes in how and where organizations or companies store customer data, and more importantly – how they grant access to that data to employees, contractors and business partners.
Each organization that processes personal data, and that's regulated by the GDPR, will face its own obligations to comply with the GDPR. We here at Publisher Rest have taken steps to implement the necessary processes and procedures designed to best comply with GDPR, with minimum disruption to our existing operations.
Publisher Rest has conducted a comprehensive security audit and risk assessment, and will be continuing to review our security measures, as we always do, to stay at the forefront of evolving industry standards and best practices.
Identity governance is and will always be the focus of our security and compliance strategy. We have strengthened the controls that determine who has access to specific data and who doesn't. Data access is controlled by "least privilege" so that access to only the minimum resources is permitted and access to sensitive data is highly restricted. These privileges will be checked on regularly.
Customers of Publisher Rest will also assume the same obligations under the GDPR as the joint data processors. This means that we will have shared responsibility in safeguarding the data we use for our data processing purposes, and will be subject to the same obligations and level of accountability before data protection authorities.
