GDPR is coming!

The European Global Data Protection regulation (GDPR) comes into force on the 25th May 2018.

There are many scare stories about massive fines but GDPR is a regulation concerned with protecting personal data which is an important objective in this day and age with the prevalence of Phishing, Hackers and Identity Theft.

GDPR can be seen as an opportunity to enhance your company’s data security, protect personal data and enhance customer trust.

As part of the regulation you need documented procedures around data protection and enhanced security around your IT systems to ensure that personal data is processed in a manner that ensures its security (IT).
