Network Data Security News: Why 2019 needs to be the year of encryption, Google’s GDPR fine and protecting Big Data in motion…

Welcome to the latest edition of Senetas View – the data networks security newsletter from Senetas, a leading global provider of certified high-assurance and virtualised network encryption and secure file-sharing solutions.

In this issue we look at how 2018 was another poor year for breach statistics, with a 133% rise in the volume of records compromised, and discuss why 2019 needs to be the year of data encryption.

We then look at how GDPR is changing the attitude towards penalties for poor data governance after Google became the second major tech firm in a matter of months to be penalised under the regulation.

Our application focus for this edition is Big Data. We’ve published an infographic that looks at the threat landscape Big Data faces, while our Solution Paper offers guidance on choosing the right solution.
