The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) forces businesses and organisations to implement security procedures so that data is protected for customers as well as employees. Those failing to demonstrate a good level of data security could face a fine of up to €20m or 4% global turnover (whichever is higher).
As stated in article 32 of the GDPR (Security of Processing)
“Implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk… including the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data”.

Secure Your Data to Minimise the Risk
Information about your employees or customers on any device that goes missing represents a significant risk. With the introduction of the GDPR, it’s all about reducing the risk. Encrypting sensitive data held on devices can help businesses reduce the risk of cyber attacks whilst complying with data protection law.
Discover your Assets
Under data protection regulations, if you are an IT asset manager you will be responsible for understanding:
- What devices you have
- Who has access to these devices?
- Where they are
- What data is held on them?
- Are they encrypted?
Before you can encrypt your devices, you must begin with a comprehensive discovery of hardware and software assets.
Through our technology partners, Managed Encryption can help you with asset discovery. GDPR Discovery is designed to reduce the data security risk of your organisation’s devices by identifying and compiling a comprehensive inventory of all your IT Assets.
