What is Cisco doing to be GDPR-ready? And how can we help.

Cisco are getting ready for GDPR in the following ways.

Our industry-leading data protection program includes:

Policies and Standards – Developing standards and processes to define the Personal Data lifecycle and help ensure data transparency, accuracy, accessibility, completeness, security, and consistency.

Identification, Classification and Mapping – Inventorying and mapping our data and identifying what we have, what we are doing with it, where it is, where it flows, and who has access to it. We classify data based on risk and sensitivity in context. That risk is data-led/ person-led, while we do care about avoiding fines, we believe focusing on the outcome and purpose of processing leads to a better and more holistic risk profile.

Data Risk and Organizational Maturity – Focusing on understanding risks and conducting threat modeling for unique data sets we process. Assessing the risks, strengths, and opportunities to understand maturity against industry benchmarks and, where those do not yet exist, we design the benchmark.

New ordinance for the categorization of hotels and restaurants

At its regular meeting, the government adopted a new regulation on the categorization of hotels and restaurants. The goal is to improve the quality of service in our resorts. There is a division of hotels and restaurants of two types according to the size and the services they offer. In addition, a single in-house phone number 9 is introduced, where guests at the hotel can pick up a reception. The single number will be a convenience for tourists if they have to urgently request an ambulance.
