Is Your Backup GDPR Compliant?

April 11th, 2017 by Sam Cobley

GDPR Backup ThumbWith GDPR on the horizon, companies are under extreme pressure to keep an inventory of the data they handle – both in-flight and at-rest to ensure that customer and employee personal data is protected.

Businesses also need to take a much stricter approach when dealing with MSP’s as they need to ensure that potential contractors handle data privacy and cyber security in a way that is compliant to the new regulations. As an organisation, do your due diligence and question their data handling practices, how they store data, who has access, their encryption policies – essentially anything relevant to how unstructured data is handled and processed.
