Preparing For GDPR


Providing you with an expert team and knowledge to guide and prepare you through every step of the GDPR journey for complete security.

Why preparing for GDPR matters 

It brings tougher regulations for ALL organisations processing the personal records of EU citizens and considerably harsher penalties for non-compliance. 

GDPR mandates considerably tougher penalties than the DPA – organisations found in breach can expect administrative fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or $20M (£17.75m), whichever is greater.

Proving GDPR compliance 

GDPR sets out a mechanism for organisations to prove they are demonstrating compliance, such as adopting the ISO27001 information security standard which will likely be joined by new trustmarks and other standards.

The level of compliance system required will vary significantly depending on your business operation and the volume of personal data being processed. 

However, given the potential costs of non-compliance, we believe every organisation needs a minimum capability in place to prove understanding of GDPR and that effective steps are in place to monitor and prove compliance.
