Companies already paid €2,720,000,000 in GDPR fines. It takes minute to get a detailed GDPR report and prevent GDPR fines.

In today’s digital landscape, ensuring online privacy and data protection has become a top priority for businesses worldwide, driven by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If your company serves European customers, GDPR compliance is non-negotiable, irrespective of your location.

This article explores critical data segregation and demonstrates how open-source Databunker can protect corporate secrets and maintain GDPR compliance.

What is critical data segregation?

Critical data segregation is the practice of separating sensitive or critical data from other less sensitive data within a system or organization. The goal is to enhance security and minimize the risk of unauthorized access or compromise of the critical information.

Key Aspects of Critical Data Segregation:

  1. Data Classification: Understanding data sensitivity levels is crucial for devising an effective data segregation strategy.
  2. Separation of Data: Logically or physically segregating critical data ensures tight access control and prevents unintended exposure.
  3. Access Controls: Stringent access controls limit interactions with critical data to authorized personnel, reducing potential security breaches.
  4. Encryption: Implementing robust encryption adds an extra layer of protection, safeguarding critical data even in the face of unauthorized access attempts.
  5. Monitoring and Auditing: Consistent data access monitoring and audits detect anomalies, ensuring compliance with security policies.
  6. Backup and Disaster Recovery: Establishing reliable data backups and disaster recovery plans mitigate risks and ensure business continuity.
  7. Compliance and Regulations: Critical data segregation is pivotal in meeting GDPR requirements, especially for organizations with European customers.

Applying Critical Data Segregation with Databunker:

Databunker, an open-source project, offers an all-in-one solution to implement critical data segregation for your organization. Databunker can be used to store your customer personal records in secure and compliant way. It can be used to store:

  • Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
  • Personal Health Information (PHI)
  • Know Your Customer (KYC) records
  • Payment Card Industry (PCI) data

Compliance Made Simple:

After performing data classification (1) you can separate personal data (2) and store it in Databunker. Deploying Databunker effectively minimizes the impact of an attack on your existing database, thereby minimizing risks to your business.

Databunker can help you with access controls (3), encryption (4), auditing (5), and compliance (7). You can easily implement the backup and disaster recovery (6) procedure - you can backup the encrypted database used by Databunker (MySQL, PostgreSQL, RDS, Aurora, etc…).

Safe Data Handling in Breach Situations:

In case of a web app breach, customer personal data remains safe within Databunker, isolated from the main database. This isolation prevents unauthorized access to sensitive information, safeguarding user privacy.
