GDPR - File Security
Have you taken the necessary steps to ensure you or your business is compliant with the EU GDPR legislation?
Are you aware of the penalties you could face for breaching these new laws?
Could you or your business afford to lose important files? If the answer is no, then it’s time to think about what steps you need to take to comply, and ensure you don’t become the latest data loss victim.
There are many ways that data loss can occur:
Accidental file erasure or overwriting.
Power failures and natural disasters such as fire or flood.
Theft through hacking.
Acts of terrorism.
We’ve all heard the stories in the media, so what steps can you take?
Ensure you have more than one backup, ideally on different types of media.
Run regular anti-virus software on your computer hardware.
Use only portable devices with software or hardware encryption.
