Now, almost all the people in the EU whisper GDPR. Yes, GDPR is nothing but the General Data Protection Regulation and it is going to come into act on May, 2018. This system is totally designed to safeguard the data and other personal information of the EU customers. It is needless to mention that, these days, data theft has been happening everywhere and the business companies own no rights to use the users’ data without getting their consent, but at present, all such business companies are using the data of their customers without asking permission. In order to stop this disliking act, the GDPR has been developed and going to effect on sooner.
The Implications of GDPR compliance for Data Protection and storage infrastructure is beyond protecting the misuse of EU individuals’ data. The EU individuals need not has to worry about their misuse of personal data at all. The users’ data will be protected to the point and there will be no one accessing the users’ data without asking them whether or not to use their data. We cannot say that, the system will be protecting your data all the time. Of course, the privacy protection failure happens in a three various circumstances and we will discuss about those situations in the coming paragraphs.
Privacy Protection Failures of GDPR
With no doubts, the GDPR is going to be launched officially from May 2018 for protecting the personal data of the EU people. However, the system will fail to protect your personal data in the following three situations,
- Device Failures – Right from hard disk to data centers, many storage components will be used to store the users’ data and the device failure of such storage components will erase the personal data of the EU people. The physical failures such as hard disk crash, mother board damage and more will cause data loss.
- Security breaches – The data loss will happen owing to the forceful and poisonous attacks on IT infrastructure, which includes server down, application errors, entry of online criminals, end points, network errors and poisonous state actors. For example, the ransomware or malware attack will damage the data stored in the hard drive and demands money to return the stolen data.
- Logical or Soft failures – Of course, human errors or mistakes will cause data loss, which includes accidental data deletion, accidental data corruption owning to a bug or error in the script, unplanned deletion of the hard drive’s boot storage and overwriting of files in the course of data backup.
So, the data deletion or data loss will happen in the above mentioned three stages and the users should give their backup to recover their data from lost. The Implications of GDPR compliance for Data Protection and storage infrastructure is a safe and secured system with no doubts, but the above explained failures are the unplanned ones and you cannot avoid such things happening to an electronic storage or storage device. The lost or deleted data of the users will be recovered sooner or later.
