About this talk
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy, and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. Acknowledging identity threats like phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks, the GDPR applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of those residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location.
An excerpt from the GDPR describes authentication as ‘key to securing computer systems’ and as the first step ‘in using a remote service or facility, and performing access control’. The document also outlines various GDPR-compliant authentication solutions, such as smart card, OTP push apps, and FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F).
Yubico’s enterprise solution - the YubiKey - combines support for OpenPGP (an open standard for signing and encryption), FIDO U2F (a protocol that works with an unlimited number of applications), and smart card / PIV (a standard that enables RSA or ECC sign/encrypt operations using a private key stored on the device) all in one multi-protocol authentication device. This makes it a strong and flexible solution for companies required to comply with GDPR. Attend this webcast and learn:
•How GDPR will impact the way organizations worldwide store and access the personal information of EU citizens
•How to leverage open standards to achieve GDPR compliance for strong authentication
•How a multi-protocol authentication device protects organizations from phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks
