Co-Founder Kris Lahiri takes on new role to ensure company-wide data

BERKSHIRE, England, Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Egnyte, the leading cloud
provider of smart content collaboration and governance, today announced the
appointment of co-founder Kris Lahiri as their new Data Protection Officer
(DPO). In Lahiri's new role he will be responsible for continuously monitoring
Egnyte's regulatory compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR) and he will act as the main point of contact for the EU Commission
during any audits or reviews.

"With so much more at stake under GDPR, we believe that all organisations
should make the necessary moves to ensure complete compliance with the new
rules and regulations, including appointing a DPO," said Kris Lahiri, Data
Protection Officer and Co-Founder at Egnyte. "My team and I take tremendous
pride in implementing proper procedures and protocols to ensure Egnyte's
compliance with all regulations, not just the GDPR, and we will continue to
make sure all of the data we handle is properly managed and secured."

Under the new GDPR, which will be implemented May 25, 2018, organisations will
be held responsible for the proper handling of individuals' personal data. For
Egnyte, who manages data across all 28 EU countries, GDPR compliance is
critical to their business and customers.

Prior to Lahiri's appointment he served as Egnyte's Chief Information Security
Officer, responsible for creating and implementing global information security
strategies that protect all customers' content and users. Prior to Egnyte
Lahiri spent many years leading the design and deployment of large-scale
infrastructures for Fortune 100 customers Valdero and KPMG Consulting.

With just over six months until the GDPR is fully implemented, Egnyte also
announced today the release of their first ever eBook, A Practical Guide to
GDPR Compliance . The inaugural eBook is designed to help customers, partners
and any other affected organisations ensure they are compliant under the new
EU regulation.
