As Britain navigates its way through the choppy waters of Brexit, there is a great deal of uncertainty about exactly what form our new relationship with Europe will take. In many ways our trading relationships will change; this is the inevitable uncertainty. But on one level the situation is significantly clearer: UK businesses will still be required to comply with EU law if they wish to maintain any trade links with European customers. So the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into effect on 25th May 2018 will still apply to most of us.
But the trouble with certainty is that it is rarely ever that simple. When it comes to our relationship with Europe it appears that the words of John Allen Paulos, an American Professor of Mathematics apply: ‘Uncertainty is the only certainty there is’. So where does this leave the CISO, whose responsibility it is to ensure compliance with not only GDPR but also any future UK and EU regulations? Well the clever mathematician went on to say that ‘knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security.’ And this is the key.
By accepting a degree of insecurity and establishing a means by which to manage it, a CISO can maintain compliance and provide strategic direction for the company’s information security agenda. The following steps will help to navigate this difficult course.
