In a word YES! Information is now a commodity and there are at least two very good reasons why you need to protect your business data.
Cyber crime is on the increase and according to UK Government figures just under half (46%) of all businesses identified at least one breach or attack in the last year. The most common types of breaches related to staff receiving fraudulent emails (72% of those who identified a breach or attack), followed by viruses and malware (33%), people impersonating the organisation online (27%) and ransomware (17%). Breaches were often linked to human factors, highlighting the importance of staff awareness and vigilance.
European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) will become law on 25th May 2018. This important legislation strengthens the rights of individuals based in the European Union (EU) giving them greater control over their personal data and privacy. It places obligations on organisations who process or hold data to put into place strict controls. It applies to organisations established and offering services within the EU as well as those that monitor the behaviour of individuals in the EU. Enforcement of the regulation commences from May 25th, 2018. A failure to comply could mean a fine for your business or a notice requiring you to rectify matters.
If you are a sole trader or have only one or two staff then our FREE EU-GDPR Self Assessment Tool (SAT) is ideal for you. Our innovative technology will ask you a series of questions. You will then be provided with a risk rating of low, medium or high.
GDPR compliant recommendations. For a small fee we can provide you with a report detailing how you can become compliant with this important piece of legislation. Our reports are written in plain language and you are always able to contact us if there are things you do no understand. All our recommendations are based upon our experience and practical knowledge of protecting data. Please see our next page for details.
A SAT is not appropriate to cover all issues relating to Data and Information Security or for larger businesses. If you want a more in depth appraisal providing you with full coverage of risks our Business Risk Assessment (BRA) will be more appropriate to your needs. A BRA will cover a number of areas to provide you with an enhanced level of security for your business particularly relevant if you are dealing with sensitive, client data.
