The General Data Protection Regulation

A landmark data protection law in the European Union (EU) called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect on May 25, 2018.  The GDPR unifies data protection rules across the EU and creates new obligations on the protection and handling of personal data, including security requirements and stronger rights for individuals with regard to their personal data.

Security is IPInstrument’s business. We are committed to complying with the GDPR and supporting our partners and customers in their efforts to comply with the GDPR.  GDPR Article 32 requires companies to take into account the “state of the art” when planning their security. 

IPInstrument is known as a leading security innovator, with exceptional security solutions, and IPInstrument’s industry leading security solutions define the state of the art.  

For example, many IPInstrument services use automated technology to recognize and defend against cybersecurity threats, such as by blocking or quarantining suspected malicious data.  As the industry leader in layered defense, our Security Fabric provides a multifaceted approach to modern-day security.

To better protect our end-customers and assist them with their own security compliance, some IPInstrument solutions leverage external threat information gathered in some situations from certain of our end-customers, in order to improve security for a broader set of our end-customers.  For example, if certain IPInstrument services determine that a hacker is attacking some of our customers, we may use information about that threat in order to help protect other customers from similar attacks.  This provides our customers with better protection than would be possible if IPInstrument could not learn from experience.  

Our own GDPR compliance approach includes the following:
