GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
GDPR is set to replace the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, however, the sanctions for suffering a data breach and failing to comply, are a lot heftier and the consequences can be dire. Once GDPR is enforced and a business suffers a data breach, resulting in a leak of customer data, the business could be fined up to 4% of their global turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater.
In addition, the business will be required to notify the relevant supervisory authority, within 72 hours, and failing to do so will result in a fine up to 2% of their global turnover or €10 million, whichever is greater. In some cases, the data subjects affected must also be notified.

Cyber threats are on the rise and putting businesses at risk
Malware, such as ransomware and worms, are being developed at an increasing rate and are becoming more intelligent. 2 million attacks happen in the UK every 24 hours and UK government statistics found that almost half of all businesses in the UK have already suffered a cyber breach in the past year.
One of the most recent global cyber-attacks which was widely reported in the news was a variation of ransomware known as, WannaCry. The cryptoworm had serious consequences, with over 200,000 victims and infected over 300,000 computers across 150 countries, including many NHS hospitals in England and Scotland.
The UK government has produced a report stating that 76% of businesses in the UK are not prepared for a similar attack to the one suffered by the NHS. With GDPR coming into effect on the 25th of May 2018, it is important now more than ever to ensure that the right measures are in place to protect your business data and assets.
