With data becoming one of the most valuable commodities in the world, estimated to be worth £169.2bn by 2025 it is an essential part of your business strategy to protect your data. One of the best ways to do this is through compliance with data protection laws and implementing good cyber security.
We know the data protection regulations can be confusing and difficult to navigate. We all remember when GDPR came in during 2018 and now the UK rules are set to change again! The Government has just finished a consultation which will see them tear up the old rules and introduce a whole new set.
What are the benefits?
In order to stay on top of the ever-changing regulations you can outsource your data protection. By using an external data protection specialist you can rely on the fact that at least one area of the business is in safe hands freeing you up to concentrate on what you do best.
You also have access to the very latest data protection knowledge, including the proposed changes to the Data Protection Laws in the UK without having to wade through pages of confusing information.
It is great value as it saves you tasking one of your employees from having to take on the responsibility which costs your resource.
The regulations also require that all employees and new employees are trained in GDPR, an outsourced specialist can do that for you.
They will also review all your existing policies and write any new ones that you need.
What happens if you have a Data Breach?
Your data protection specialist can handle everything including investigating, reporting and putting in measures to prevent it happening again.
