Are you ready for the challenge of GDPR?

Proactively protecting your Network 24 / 7 x 365.

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) seeks to create a data protection law framework across all organisations that manage, process and control data in their interaction with the EU and aims to give control of personal data back to the individual.

What is GDPR?

The reform impose strict rules on those hosting and ‘processing’ this data, anywhere in the world. The regulation presents some challenges to the accepted ways of managing data and makes clear the responsibilities of both the controllers of any data (whether corporate or individual) and the processors of any data.
It is a requirement that users:
Understand how companies use their data for sales and marketing purposes.
Are aware of their rights with regard to personal data.
Are informed of any issues in the control and management of their data (such as data breaches).
Organisations are concerned about the heavy financial penalties the Regulation can impose. However there is significant gain from those that embrace, adopt and consider how planning and early adoption of GDPR can bring market opportunity or advantage.

How can you translate GDPR into actions and values for your business. Lets help you consider what measures need to happen, against what activities and compliance's you already maintain and have.
This is probably one of the largest and impacting areas of the regulations, understanding the required changes is key.
Protecting the security of your data in the Cloud and providing an infrastructure that ensures proper user rights, choice, rectification and erasure correctly and easily is paramount.
Understanding where your data is, how its used and who is interacting with it is a primary requirement. Transparent undertaking between you and your cloud service provider is an absolute requirement.
People and Communication:

Train your people on GDPR requirements so they understand the risks of improper data use.



GDPR is a complex and far-reaching legislation, comprising many components that touch organisations in differently and at all levels. GDPR needs a strong Information Governance program and technical framework to succeed.

A comprehensive approach is required, taking all of its aspects and your organisations needs into consideration.

The assessment we provide can be a great help whether your company has already considered GDPR or is preparing to start. The assessment begins with determining the main GDPR stakeholders in your organisation per key area of attention. This is done together with the person responsible for data privacy in your organisation (you may even already have a special data privacy officer in place). These stakeholders might be: representatives of the HR department, for communication, training and personnel data; of the marketing department, for protecting your brand and your customer data; and of the IT department, for security issues. Interviews will be planned with all these people.
