GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation

"a firewall will not fix your issues and it's not an IT thing to fix"

While securing your perimeter will greatly help, GDPR is so much more and affects every part of your business.

What is this GDPR and why should you care...

It is about protecting personal data;

"personal data is any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a home address, a photo, an email address, bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical information, or a computer’s IP address."

You will be recording this information in some way and manner so it will apply to you and the regulations are not just about losing the data but about what and how you store it and how long it is held for and used.

You need to care about this, as to not take it seriously comes at a cost. Failure to employ a strict data protection compliance regime could leave you with severe penalties of up to 4% of worldwide turnover.

We can help provide the tools and guidance to make sure you can demonstrate you care about personal data and reduce your potential liabilities.
