GDPR compliance
GDPR is the rare data-stewardship regulation that (1) caused so much panic and (2) was so in-depth and broadly encompassing that it compelled a lot of organizations to do more than "check-the-box compliance" (which is what usually happens).

Things might level out *slightly* in the next, say, 3-5 years, but it appears that all that hype was good for something.

Re: GDPR compliance
Seriously! All the angst seems to be replaced by some pretty good outcomes for those who comply, according to this new data.

New study
a new study already shows that organizations that invested in data privacy to meet GDPR guidelines suffered fewer data breaches in the past year Positive results of a regulation? This certainly rarely happens. :-))

Re: GDPR compliance
GDPR is the rare data-stewardship regulation I think one reason for that is it just not a regulation but the one that is enforced.

Re: GDPR compliance
Well, trust me, a lot of the EU DPAs weren't exactly sitting on their laurels when it came to enforcement/policing.

It's more an issue of the difference between the EU's approach to these matters and the US's approach to these matters (the latter being much more laissez-faire by comparison).

Re: GDPR compliance
@Kelly: Well, to look at the other side of things, what's the total cost of compliance in each case? And how many years down the road will the ROI be realized?

Compare the recent Google fine of fifty-something million dollars. They probably have that much in the company swear jar.

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
