GET YOUR SECURITY HOUSE IN ORDER
Before you even look at GDPR make sure you have security measures in place for the multiple IT layers within your business - including Data, Application, Endpoint, Network and Cloud.
Unless each layer is secured, it’s a cyber-attack waiting to happen, spelling damage to brand, reputation and revenues, as well as susceptibility to lawsuits.
Worst case scenario?
You are attacked and, as a direct or indirect result, you go out of business.
Best case scenario?
Not only will your business be protected from cyber-attacks … you’ll have already completed several steps towards GDPR! If you already have the essential cyber-security measures in place, then you’re on the way to being GDPR complaint. According to the National Cyber Security Centre the minimum you need to help protect against a cyber-attack is:
GLASS HALF FULL
If you already have the essential cyber-security measures in place, then you’re on the way to being GDPR complaint. According to the National Cyber Security Centre the minimum you need to help protect against a cyber-attack is:
✓ Secure your Internet connection: use a firewall
✓ Secure your devices and software: choose the most secure settings, don’t rely on manufacturers default settings
✓ Control access to your data and services: an attacker with unauthorised access to an administrative account can be far more damaging than one accessing a standard user account
✓ Protect from viruses and other malware: invest in proven software solutions
✓ Keep your devices and software up to date: look for automatic patching solutions
Also, make sure your cyber-security solutions are regularly inspected to ensure they’re correctly configured, patched, and updated. Incorrect security configuration is a major cause of security incidents.Ask us about a quick and simple Security Health Check to keep you safe from cyber attacks.
TAKE A BREACH HOLIDAY
We’re not GDPR experts but we DO know about the best cyber-security solutions!
We take a multi-layered approach and advise you on what solutions are right for your business to ensure they help minimise the risk of a breach.
We understand that people make or break a business – not just the technology or the processes.

If you do face a GDPR breach, then we can offer you the right security to ensure you can detect and report a breach within 72 hours (which is your legal obligation).
