GDPR – What is it?

If you are in business then you will have heard of GDPR. This is a law that will affect all businesses and all need to make changes to meet the legislation. If this is news to you, act now or face a potential fine of up to *€20 Million or 4% of turnover.

It is up to you, the business owner and business manager to ensure you have taken steps to protect the data you hold. If you are unsure, we can advise and help you with the technology you use. This not just about big databases of personal details but could be as simple as an email sent to the wrong person or losing a computer that is un protected.

Malware is everywhere and a very large and constant threat comes from spoofing emails and the like. You need to be exceptionally careful or you need to buy in the tools that will help protect you. It is imperative that all staff are trained and understand your company policies on data safety.

As an IT supplier, we recommend and can supply a number of products that will go some way to protecting data. E.g. if you use Office 365 and have a protection suite such as Kaspersky or Sophos, then you will have some of the tools that help with this. You need to do more and a good place to start is to carryout an assessment.

If you haven’t yet completed a GDPR assessment, a good guide is available free of charge from Kaspersky
