  • is a good website if you’re looking to get your essay written for you. You can also request things like research papers or dissertations. It’s really convenient and helpful. If you’ve got something very last-minute then it can be a little risky but either way it’s probably better than anything you can throw together :).

  9. 9. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  10. 10. • GDPR is composed of 11 chapters and 99 articles: – Chapter 1 – General provisions – Chapter 2 – Principles – Chapter 3 – Rights of the data subject – Chapter 4 – Controller and processor – Chapter 5 – Transfers of personal data to third countries or international organisations – Chapter 6 – Independent supervisory authorities – Chapter 7 – Cooperation and consistency – Chapter 8 – Remedies, liability and penalties – Chapter 9 – Provisions relating to specific processing situations – Chapter 10 – Delegated acts and implementing acts – Chapter 11 – Final provisions GDPR Regulation
  11. 11. • General Data Protection Regulation to be enforced on 25 May 2018 • This regulation will impact any business, whether based in the EU or not, that holds the personal data of EU citizens. • GDPR is driven by two serious threats: – Reputational damage – Monetary fines (up to €20m max or 4% of total worldwide annual turnover, whichever is higher) • Mandatory for businesses of over 250 employees to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO). • GDPR has several rules such as ‘the right to be forgotten’ GDPR Overview
  12. 12. • 1 in 4 companies in the UK have stopped preparing for GDPR • “If you process data about individuals in the context of selling goods or services to citizens in other EU countries then you will need to comply with the GDPR, irrespective as to whether or not you the UK retains the GDPR post-Brexit.” * • 84% of financial services firms are not prepared for GDPR** The Brexit and GDPR * ** 2016 Egress article
  13. 13. How Does GDPR Affect The Mainframe?
  14. 14. • Most mainframe sites have not started to prepare for GDPR! • Main reasons are: – Belief that it only applies to countries of the European Union – Mainframe is unhackable so there’s nothing to be done – Mainframe meets all the GDPR requirements by default • Funny enough in some cases the GDPR compliance box has been ticked without the mainframe technical teams being even consulted!! Current Status
  15. 15. • How much customer data do you store on the mainframe? • What type of data you are collecting? • How much of that data relates to EU citizens or companies? • How data is processed, managed, stored and protected? • Which applications and processes use the data? • Who has got access to it? • Is the data properly classified? Do You Know?
  16. 16. Your Mainframe got breached?
  17. 17. How To Avoid ”Losing” Your Head?
  18. 18. You need to know your data, your processes, your applications; in summary you need to know your mainframe environment…
  19. 19. • 7 Steps to meet the GDPR technical requirements: – # 1 - Data Discovery & Detection: • Identify, document and classify the data • Where is it used, processed and stored? – # 2 - Access Control & Restriction: • Access to Data must be restricted • Access control of applications, processes and databases needs to be reviewed Mainframe Technical Perspective (1)
  20. 20. – # 3 - End-point-protection: • Tapes and other end-point-devices need to be controlled and protected. • Consider this: – Can the data be accessed by mobile devices? – Can the data be downloaded to the local terminal and transferred into a USB memory stick? – # 4 - Pseudonymisation and Encryption: • Data should be encrypted and anonymised both at “rest” and ”in transit” Mainframe Technical Perspective (2)
  21. 21. – # 5 - Backup and Recovery: • Think of CIA: Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability – # 6 - Anti-virus & Malware detection: • Does not apply to the mainframe (until it does) • Think of alerting and monitoring – # 7 - Vulnerability scanning and Penetration testing: • Consider undertaking these tests at a reasonable frequency to keep measuring your security effectiveness Mainframe Technical Perspective (3)
  22. 22. Review SecureMonitor Mainframe Technical - Summary
  23. 23. • Although not a direct GDPR requirement (at least not at the moment), consider Security Certifications. • It is extremely likely that approved certifications or codes-of- conduct specifically for GDPR will arrive, and it’s also highly possible that these will look for security certifications as pre-requisites (e.g. ISO 27001). Consider Security Certifications
  24. 24. Mainframe Technical Hardware
  25. 25. • Some examples of products that may help with GDPR: – IBM zSecure (or Vanguard’s equivalent) – IBM Multi-Factor Authentication for z/OS – IBM Security Identity Governance and Intelligence – RSM Exception Reporter – RSM Enterprise Connector – RSM zDetect – CA Privileged Access Manager – CA Test Data Manager – CA Data Content Discovery Mainframe Technical Software
