Responding to a diverse threat environment and increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, including GDPR, Adriatic Slovenica sought to structure its security processes.
As a financial services institution, Adriatic Slovenica holds sensitive customer data, including medical records, and has to comply with very stringent data privacy regulations. With GDPR on the horizon, Adriatic Slovenica realized it needed a far more structured approach to its security and operations processes, as Sandi Bižal, Security Officer for Adriatic Slovenica, explains: “In compliance with GDPR, we need to provide full audit trails for all our applications. In general, we lacked visibility into our systems. We were worried we could not easily track data access, and we would not be able to identify a security breach fast enough. The process of managing our security operations was manual and time-intensive.”
Bižal had worked with regional Micro Focus Gold Partner SRC before and engaged them on this project. SRC is an IT company specializing in digital transformation. Simon Simčič, Systems Engineer with SRC: “In a diverse threat landscape and with increasing regulatory compliance requirements, we recognized that this was not just about improving security, but about introducing structure and processes to gain full visibility of the environment.”
