General Data Protection Regulation

Will Your Business Be Ready For The New General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)?

On the 25th May 2018 the new GDPR came into effect, which places greater obligations on organisations to protect personal/ sensitive data.

You should ensure that you have the right security tools and processes in place to prevent loss, theft or unauthorized access to your customers’ data.

Stiff penalties for non-compliance can result in fines of up to 4% of your organisations annual turnover. Not only will you suffer financial consequences there are regulatory and reputational consequences that follow a serious data-security breach.

How Can UShred Help Your Business To Comply With The New Regulations?
