GDPR is a EU legislation that has been created to regulate the data privacy protection of EU residents, which has come into effect in May 2018. It has been developed to strengthen data privacy and is the most recent development in EU legislation in modern times. Compliance with the GDPR is paramount to anyone doing business in the EU.
In addition to increasing security around data and consumer details the GDPR stipulates that in the event of a breach in security, customers must be notified within 72 hours of the breach. Everyone who plans to do business in the European Union or works within the EU should make sure that they are in compliance with the GDPR before May 2018.
You have to be aware of your current IT equipment to make sure that it is up to the required standard to protect your devices to external threats. This means that you have to identify data risks and then being able to source the correct IT technology to be able to have the adequate protection. Noncompliance will mean fines of up to 20 million euros if any breach is made.

It’s no longer adequate to limit security to firewalls. Ransomware attacks, which hold your data hostage, are increasingly prevalent and hard to avoid. We offer ways to blunt their impact.
