On May 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation will come into effect. This regulation requires all organisations to notify their clients and stakeholders of what measures they will be implementing to comply to GDPR. A popular choice for compliance is implementing an Information Security Management System (ISMS) to ensure they protect their client’s data from possible cyber-attack. Any organisations that are found to be noncompliant will face heavy penalties and fines.
Compliance to regulations such as the EU GDPR has seen the demand for management systems in Information Security (ISO 27001) and Cyber Essentials grow as they are the best and most efficient way to show compliance to the new regulations. Organisations across all industries now partner with us to help them become compliant to EU GDPR by achieving certification which is accepted not just by Europe but on a global scale.
