Fallout: GDPR Edition

Posted by user.RZYHBOK9oJ Employee Mar 13, 2018

While the video game series by the same title is a nice diversion from reality for many of my friends and my brother-in-law (the guy will stay up into the wee hours of the morning playing this thing), the reality is that the "Fallout" that occurs from a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) violation won't be quite as pretty.


Without being preachy (there's plenty of resources on the damages that could occur for non-compliance with this EU-driven initiative), we're here to remind you to check out our The specified item was not found. group on Mimecaster Central, well ahead of the regulation's enforcement on May 25, 2018.


The group is stocked with resources on not only the regulation itself, but also how to configure Mimecast to help you meet your GDPR compliance objectives...and avoid the fallout.


Additionally, you'll be able to raise discussions with fellow Mimecasters and get all your questions answered from a staff of experts including our Chief Trust Officer at Mimecast, Marc French.


Join our Mimecaster Central GDPR group now.

Matthew Gardiner is a Senior Product Marketing Manager at Mimecast, currently focused on email security, phishing, malware, and cloud security.


A key part of our job as your email security services provider is to keep adapting to the continuously changing nature of attacks being perpetrated by the cybercriminals. They shift and we shift. We shift and they shift. 


The latest additional arrow to our threat protection services quiver is a new file inspection service that combines the security provided by URL Protect and Attachment Protect. This new capability enables our email security service to send a directly linked file to be deeply inspected before it is allowed to be downloaded to your employees' desktop, blocking off another route to email-borne malware delivery. It shows off the clear value of combining URL Protect's link re-writing with the static file analysis and sandboxing of Attachment Protect. You can read more about this capability in this Service Update


All customers with URL Protect and Attachment Protect will have access to this capability as it becomes available on your particular Mimecast grid. In addition, it will also be available as part of our Internal Email Protect service at the same time.
