Better password security for GDPR compliance

Sponsored by Specops

It has been more than a year since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect and businesses are starting to feel the impact. Recent fines issued by Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK’s data protection body, have been a wakeup call for organisations. This past July, ICO fined British Airways £183.39 million for a 2018 data breach that led to 500,000 of its customers’ personal data being collected by a fraudulent website. The following day, the ICO fined Marriott International over £99 million for a security breach during which 339 million guest records were exposed.
