Adopt robust breach detection and meet one of the key GDPR requirements

New White Paper

The GDPR is officially upon us, and we’re pleased to share the release of our latest white paper that deconstructs the specific requirements organisations must adopt in order to comply with the Article 83 and its reference to data breaches.

CounterCraft shifts the lens in this paper to provide a detailed analysis and explanation of the GDPR, Article 83, and the components that have so far been neglected in the rush to reassure users that their data will only be used with their consent and in accordance with the new regulation. This resource focuses on the need for organisations to ensure that they have robust breach detection and investigation mechanisms in place, and the way in which the CounterCraft Cyber Deception Platform can be applied to solve this need.


“You should ensure you have robust breach detection, investigation and internal reporting procedures in place. This will facilitate decision-making about whether or not you need to notify the relevant supervisory authority and the affected individuals.” Article 83, EU GDPR


CounterCraft promotes a proactive approach to risk management, using automated deception campaigns to significantly reduce the chances and impact of a breach. Data breaches are often talked about solely in the context of regulatory costs and short term damage to share prices. It is important to consider, however, the high value, indirect financial losses that are also incurred by any cyber attack, regardless of whether it makes the headlines.

The CounterCraft Cyber Deception Platform provides a sophisticated layered approach to threat intelligence, developed to keep pace with the increasingly dynamic threat landscape. It’s real time intelligence and it’s immediately actionable - eliminating the need for manual intervention to curate and connect the dots. And by design, it significantly enhances an organisation’s breach detection and investigation capabilities. Advanced functionality aside, it’s been proven to reduce security spend and improve overall security posture.

Discover how the CounterCraft Cyber Deception Platform enables businesses to:

• Identify potentially vulnerable infrastructure
• Deflect threats into synthetic environments
• Acquire targeted and actionable intelligence
• Strengthen their infrastructure against targeted attacks
• Obtain relevant and detailed reporting on attack trends
• Deploy security resources and budgets more efficiently

We can be sure that the threat landscape will continue to evolve at a rate many are struggling to keep up with. CounterCraft combines automation with an advanced modular infrastructure that responds to current threats. As a result, organisations are better positioned to improve operational efficiency, sharpen their risk strategy, and protect their data assets.
