This paper examines the emergence of DNS-based data exfiltration as a growing mechanism for extracting valuable or sensitive personal data from vulnerable organizations. In particular, it examines the effect of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the level of risk organizations now face with data exfiltration and suggests that companies that do not address this could be exposed to severe consequences under the new regulations. Although GDPR is an EU regulation it impacts any organization that processes "the personal data of data subjects who are in the EU, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the (EU) or not." Thus it has global reach and significance.
