Compliant and secure websites for the Network of Greek Libraries of the National Library of Greece
The application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regarding the operation of websites is considered of vital importance, especially to organizations within the European Union. GDPR is a useful tool, which, among other requirements, mandates the adoption of privacy-by-design and advanced IT security mechanisms in place. Considering its requirements, this paper analyses their implementation with regard to applied Internet Security solutions for the websites of the Greek Libraries Network of the National Library of Greece. While the GDPR offers a minimum set of technical Internet Security means to be taken into consideration by companies and organizations Europe-wide to achieve GDPR compliance, hereby we aim to highlight the adaptation of strong and proper security mechanisms that will not only set libraries-members of the Greek Libraries Network of the National Library of Greece compliant with GDPR, but also maintain them strong and secure against most threats targeting websites to both internal and external cyber security threats.
