This year’s RSA Conference in San Francisco had a lot of belligerent to cover. Cybersecurity, of course. Fending off ransomware attacks. Building confidence best practices into worker training.

But, according to CSO’s Steve Ragan, a hottest topics during a 2018 discussion were this month’s appearing GDPR deadline and blockchain, blockchain, blockchain. (In fact, the dual are mostly partial of a same conversation.)

Ragan, who attended RSA, spoke with Computerworld Executive Editor Ken Mingis about what he learned, with a special concentration on a May 25 GDPR deadline and what companies are scrambling to do to strengthen their data.

GDPR stands for General Data insurance Rule and is being rolled out in a European Union. But it also relates to U.;S. companies who do business in Europe, many of whom aren’t nonetheless prepared for a new rules. That, pronounced Ragan, is because a new manners were such a prohibited subject during RSA: companies aren’t certain what information needs to be protected, or how best to do so, or even where that information is on their network.
