The General Data Protection Regulation

Secure your data before the deadline of 25th May 2018

What is the GDPR?

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a forthcoming regulation that forces EU (including the UK) businesses and organisations to implement security procedures so that data is protected for customers as well as employees. If you are not compliant by the deadline of 25th May 2018, organisations could face a fine of up to €20m or 4% global turnover (whichever is higher).

As stated in article 32 – Security of processing: “Implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk… including encryption of personal data”.

Changes are Coming! Plan Early

The GDPR deadline starts on 25th May 2018. Businesses and organisations will struggle to make their business operations comply with the GDPR by this date unless they start taking action today.

Encryption is the first step any business should take towards becoming compliant with the GDPR. Encrypting data makes it unintelligible to any unauthorised people.

These risks impose heavy fines as you are exposed to variables such as unauthorised access and stolen/loss of sensitive data.
