You probably already know that new GDPR data protection laws are being introduced this month. But did you know that your business could be publicly shamed if you don’t comply?
If you’re thinking that data legislation is the last thing you want to be thinking about right now, we understand. It’s certainly not the most scintillating of subjects… but you hold the key!
So, before you look away and do something else, stop!
This short educational guide has been created to help you get your head around GDPR and get it right, early and quickly.
GDPR, a brief recap…
What is GDPR? What do you have to do? And what are the potential penalties? This guide has pointers that will quickly help remind you.
So data breaches are the thing to fear…
The problem is, your staff can inadvertently be your greatest headache, and the vast majority of data breaches are caused by human error.
GDPR means that data breaches have the potential to totally destroy businesses. That’s because you can no longer sweep them under the carpet and hope nobody finds out. Now, every single breach must be reported to the Information Commissioner’s Office within 72 hours, and that information will be made public.
Here’s the good news…
The best way to stop data breaches like this happening is to take a proactive approach. Prevention is always, always better than cure. That means having robust security protocols in place and doing everything you can to keep your customers’ details safe and sound.
