July 2017 – The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), will affect every organisation in Europe that handles personal data of any kind. It will also affect any company that does business in the EU. The rules are complex and fines for non-compliance are significant.
Studies have shown that organisations are not really fully aware of GDPR and what they need to do within their own organisation to comply with regulations. There are three key areas that need to be looked at in detail:
An audit of your data:
– Who has access to the data
– What kind of data does the organisation maintain
– Where is the data stored
Breech of data plan:
– Does your organisation have a plan in place that can be implemented in the case of a breech in the regulations
Have you the right technology in place:
– Encryption on laptops
– Infiltration Monitoring Technologies
– Network Analysis Tools
Talk to supportIT about how your organisation can address all the key areas and work towards complying with regulations when they come into effect in May 2018.
