By: Martin WhitworthResearch Director, European Security, Romain FouchereauManager, Security Appliance Program, European Systems and Infrastructure Solutions


This IDC Perspective focuses on the challenge of responding to the requirements of NIS, GDPR, and RPEC to take into account technologies and practices that are state of the art in security (SotA). It provides guidance to organizations to allow them to develop their own SotA process.

"No definitive guidance has been provided as to what constitutes 'state of the art'"," said Martin Whitworth, research director, IDC European Data Security and Privacy "This means that each firm must have their own view on what state of the art means to their organization, and be able to defend this."
