The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will come in to force on 25th May 2018. If your business controls or processes any personal information – e.g. employee and/or customer data – you will need to comply. Failure to do so could cost you dearly, resulting in heavy fines and serious damage to the reputation of your business.
Central to GDPR compliance is making sure that the personal data your business deals with is controlled and processed securely. Businesses of all sizes are increasingly under threat from cyber attacks. If you have not put the appropriate technical measures in place to protect personal data, your business will be liable should you suffer a data breach.
Cyber Essentials is the UK Government Cyber Security standard for all businesses and organisations. Meeting the standard demonstrates that your business is taking all reasonable steps to protect the data you hold, and that you take cyber security seriously.
Node IT Solutions are holding this business briefing on GDPR and Cyber Essentials in partnership with Blackmores, specialists in Quality, Risk & Environmental Management. Mel Blackmore will be talking about GDPR and how businesses can prepare. Leigh Wood from Node IT will be taking you through the government Cyber Essentials standards and what businesses need do to qualify and pass the assessment.
