Your private and confidential data is exactly that – private AND confidential. Everyone storing it anywhere on or offline has a legal responsibility to protect it. And that means EVERYONE. From the smallest of online stores, to the largest of international tech companies, from that business trip hotel in Hull to Facebook to Uber to HMRC.
You’ve probably heard of GDPR – it stands for General Data Protection Regulation. Your data. Your protection.
No ifs, no buts, just a legal obligation to make sure that when your data is stored it’s stored absolutely securely. Electronically secure from criminal hacks and cyber theft and also physically secure on properly encrypted and password protected hardware such as laptops, USB sticks, external drives and even paper.
