Delivering Security and Privacy Designed for Today’s Threats
by Keri LeBlanc, Marketing Director, CyberDenfenses, Inc.
Founded in 2001 by military cybersecurity veterans, CyberDefenses works closely with enterprise clients to provide battle-tested managed security services. If there is anything we’ve learned over the years, it’s that effectively protecting your organization’s critical data from increasingly capable and determined adversaries requires a combination of trained people, well-designed processes, and modern tools. That’s why CyberDefenses’ approach encompasses a full suite of services, training and advisory guidance.
In more recent times, the work of data security now extends well beyond corporate intellectual property, into the privacy demands of their customers and regulators. To strengthen regulatory compliance that spans both security and privacy, CyberDefenses has partnered with Privacy Ref. Together, CyberDefenses and Privacy Ref provide a more comprehensive suite of data privacy and security services including:
- Identification of data protection requirements
- Assessment of business operations and organization – specifically with respect to how well they meet regulatory requirements when compared to industry best practices
- Business process definition that maximizes information protection
- Application of security controls that best protect against cyber threats
- Incident response management, processes, and procedures that minimize damage and downtime
- Privacy and security team training
Our initial joint service provides guidance around the European General Data Protection Directive – a European Union (EU) law that will impact every organization offering goods and services in the EU, even if an organization has no physical presence in Europe.
Privacy Ref provides consulting and assessment services to build and improve organizational privacy programs. For more information call Privacy Ref at (888) 470-1528 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Posted on February 12, 2018 by Kelly Cheary

Most of us have been wrapped up in GDPR preparations for several months. While there are many organizations "not quite there yet", many others have made great strides towards compliance. As we continue to do assessments for clients, both GDPR and General Privacy, I have been surprised at the frequency of the gap between a privacy official describing their organization's data subjects, information collected, and business processes with the reality of what is happening.

Starting January 1, 2020, if you are a for-profit company doing business in California, you may have new data privacy compliance obligations. Specifically, California just enacted the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the country’s strictest data privacy law to date), placing new privacy mandates on certain businesses with respect to the personal information of consumers (defined as natural persons who are California residents). Many aspects of the new law smack of EU-GDPR influences, such as a new and improved (in other words, broader) definition of personal information and the inclusion of guaranteed consumer rights with respect to such personal information. If your business is already in compliance with the EU’s GDPR, the California law will be nothing new to you. For other businesses, however, you have 18 months to get with the program.
