GDPR, Cyber Crime And You
Posted on 19th January 2019 at 10:00
GDPR, Cyber Crime and You…
The “Great Data Evolution” is upon us, our information is out there,
Its in the cloud.
We post it.
We share it.
We tweet it.
Our willingness to use the new technology without a real understanding of doing so has some devastating consequences, Cyber Crime, Data Breaches and Non Compliance…..
The headlines keep coming
We hear them daily
We know we need to change
We promise that we will protect ourselves
Reality however is…
Although we are fully aware of the consequences and threats our ability to process real change is limited by our thoughts and attitudes:-
Lack of Understanding.
It will never happen to us.
Fear of the unknown.
It will cost too much.
The 25th of May
Despite the thoughts of many the 25th of May enforced the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) allowing an opportunity for our businesses to stand out from the crowd.
The introduction of GDPR has provided a more formalised approach to implement best practices that we should have always been doing.
With the“Great Data Evolution”, GDPR and the increase in Cyber Crime our customers are becoming more aware, they are expecting that as businesses we take care of their data and failure to do so will cause damage to our reputation, our business, our bottom line and our customer confidence.
Compliance is a Journey
Our compliance is a journey….
“We cannot be GDPR compliant we are always being GDPR compliant”
We must protect ourselves from Cyber Crime and implement policies, procedures & Appropriate Technical/Organisational measures to keep being GDPR compliant.
A final word of the highest importance...
It is very true that the consequences of our failure could be huge including the possibility of our businesses ceasing to trade however following the rules, protecting ourselves from Cyber Crime and being compliant is not difficult to implement and achieve.
Our GDPR/Cyber Compliance Training will help any business to understand, develop and implement their successful compliance journey.
