Antivirus protection

I wanted to know do I need any special software for data storage and their security besides the documentation to implement GDPR (besides antivirus I have already installed)?

Answer:

The antivirus protects data only as regards to certain types of threats usually external threats and this is hardly enough to prove that you are keeping the data safe.

The EU GDPR in article 32 - Security of processing (https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/gdpr/security-of-processing/) mentions “pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data” as examples of measures that can be taken to protect the data.

However, is up to the controllers and processors to establish “appropriate technical and organizational measures” based on the types and categories of personal data they are processing as well as the purpose of the processing (obviously a Bank would nee to have more strict security measures than an online shop selling flowers). In our folder 8_Security of Processing in our EU GDPR Documentation Toolkit (https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/eu-gdpr-documentation-toolkit/ ).

You can also check out our article “How cybersecurity solutions can help with GDPR compliance” https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/blog/2017/11/27/how-cybersecurity-solutions-can-help-with-gdpr-compliance/
