What is personal data under GDPR?
- Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as a name, an identification number, location data, or online identifiers, including IP addresses and cookies
- Physical, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identifiers if they can be traced back to a specific individual
- Data for individuals in all personas—be that work, public, or private
McAfee has worked hard to be ready for the GDPR enforcement date, reviewing our products, processes, data protection policies, and security controls. We are committed to compliance with this and all applicable laws. We have enhanced processes to prepare to address effectively the particular rights of people in the EU. We have generated written guidance to help our customers understand how our products collect and use personal data, and we are prepared to answer questions from our consumer and corporate customers as well as our employees.
“The McAfee GDPR Readiness project has been a great example of how Together is power. Cross-functional teams—hundreds of people from around the company—have worked tirelessly to improve our products, processes, and documentation, and to learn more about this important new law,” said Flora Garcia, senior attorney, privacy and security, and GDPR lead for McAfee.
“One of the most important things GDPR does is require a culture of data protection. This goes hand-in-hand with McAfee’s mission to protect our customers’ critical systems and data with leading-edge cybersecurity solutions. Our internal compliance is crucial to the role our products play in helping customers comply with their obligations under GDPR, as well as other privacy and security laws.”

How can McAfee solutions help you?
At McAfee, we believe that the GDPR is a great opportunity for security professionals to work closely with other business functions to integrate data protection into the fabric of business processes. It also offers an opportunity for chief information security officers to get board-level commitment to provide appropriate investment in the security function.
McAfee technology solutions and services cover these areas of the data security lifecycle: data discovery, application security, data loss prevention, cloud data protection, and breach detection and response in the security operations environment.
