General Data Protection Regulation – Taking Action
Information, particularly personal client information, is increasingly becoming recognised as a business critical asset. Despite the importance of this information, the applied security is often overlooked, resulting in the vast majority of security breaches actually coming from within the organisation.
What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation is the most significant development in data protection that Europe has seen over the past twenty years. There is a much greater emphasis on compliance following a widely held belief that business had not taken data privacy seriously enough previously. As a consequence, penalties are considerably harsher and now include small and medium businesses.
Time to Act
There has never been a more important time to ensure that best practice is in place to secure client and employee data, protect brand reputation and ensure compliance. A planned and structured approach to the inevitable changes required for both systems and user behaviour suggests that the sooner preparation is started the better.
