Secure, manage and control
the enterprise IT infrastructure

Data breaches can seriously damage any organisation’s reputation or ruin the brand if its intelectual property is stolen. Perimeter security and Data Leakage Protection are two of the areas most likely to need addressing. There are many other areas businesses might want to consider such as regulatory compliance drivers GDPR and PCI etc, depending on the industry sector.

IT Security can sometimes be something that the IT teams “deal with” and not really perceived as something that they might need to worry overly with, “all these issues happen to other people” might be the thought process.

We listen and respond with the most appropriate solution based on your needs now and for the future.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now applies to all UK & EU companies. The GDPR will significantly change and update the data protection regime in the UK.

Organisations that work with the personal data information of European Union residents need to overhaul business processes to avoid the risks of violating the General Data Protection Regulation.

Penalties for non-compliance could cost the organisation upwards of €20 million or 4% annual worldwide revenue, whichever is higher. It is not clear as to who will enforce this yet but as this covers very nearly every organisation trading, it is going to be hard to enforce. However, similar to Data Protection Act (DPA), it will be the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) that will be most likely auditing organisations.

What you need is a thought process to understand, identify and resolve

  • Perimeter security
  • Data leakage protection
  • Regulatory compliance drivers GDPR and PCI for example
  • Other drivers may be different depending on your sector

General Data
Protection Regulation

Organisations need to understand and comply with the new regime, not least because there will be increased penalties for non-compliance. The forthcoming GDPR stands to raise the stakes, as well as the risks, associated with the collection, transport, and storage of personal data.

Any organisation that trades with companies within the EU will be bound by GDPR. If they control personal identifiable information (PII), they need to be aware and what it means to them, and take appropriate measures to bring their policies and practices in line with this austere regulation.
