John Cassidy, VP Global Sales at Ground Labs, is an expert in data security and technology.
Ground Labs is a global leader in the development of Data Security Software dedicated to making sensitive data discovery products that help organisations across Retail, Financial Services, Hospitality and Airlines prevent data loss.
Ground Labs products are currently used by more than 2,500 organisations across 80 countries to find unsecured sensitive data on their systems; securing their data helps them comply with important information security standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and the incoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
A recent Data Sec 2017 survey found that the majority of businesses in Ireland are not prepared for the upcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Although three quarters are aware of the implications of GDPR for their business, 40 per cent of those surveyed are not yet executing plans for GDPR compliance.
GDPR will come into force on May 25th 2018.
