Stay Cyber Safe
We recommend you start by reviewing the cyber security of your business progressing on to Cyber Essentials certification.
GDPR includes many cyber security requirements, including encryption, safeguarding systems against malicious code and making adequate backups of your company data.
Disaster Recovery and Backup
You should ensure that data is securely backed up and fully retrievable in the event of a cyber-attack.
Art. 32 GDPR Security of Processing
Article 32 of the GDPR highlights the importance of cyber security and the appropriate measures needed to safeguard information. It also covers the importance of backing up data and retrieving any lost data in a timely manner
the controller and the processor shall implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including inter alia as appropriate:
- the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data;
- the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services;
- the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident;
- a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing.
To be in a good position for the deadline there are 5 things we would advise you do:
1. Secure all the devices that are taken home and left in your offices overnight.
2. Maximise protection against threats and potential viruses.
3. Update your software and stay ahead of hackers.
4. Backup your data and run it from the cloud should a disaster strike.
5. Take some basic steps towards protecting your business and your data from internet based cyber-attacks.
