“We want to help other local businesses with our IT solutions. Recently we have been focusing on the IT element of GDPR to ensure that data is kept safe, secure and can be retrieved in the event of a loss.” Says Stuart Knott, Managing Director.
GDPR comes into force on 25th May 2018 and will apply to all businesses in the UK, regardless of Brexit. If breached, organisations can expect fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is greater). This means that preparations should be high up on the agenda for companies who are working towards compliancy.
It replaces the current Data Protection Act 1998, providing people with greater control over their own personal data. The official website describes the regulation as ‘the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years.’
Many cyber security requirements are essential for GDPR including: encryption, safeguarding systems against malicious code and making adequate backups of your company data.
PCS offer services to ensure businesses are fully equipped in both knowledge and guidance on the regulation. The IT specialists can help your business tackle cyber security and achieve the government backed, industry approved Cyber Essentials certification.
