Find out how encryption can help mitigate risks to your business data
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on 25 May 2018, is far more extensive in scope and application than the existing Data Protection Act 1998. Small businesses need to prepare to meet the requirements of GDPR and ensure compliance.
The Innovation Factory in Belfast will host a free GDPR masterclass on Friday 18 May 2018 to highlight:
- the impact of GDPR on a business
- what is considered data under GDPR
- why you should encrypt data
- how you can protect your business from a data breach and cyber crime
The masterclass will also include a demonstration on laptop encryption and provide an opportunity to address questions on GDPR, cyber crime prevention and encryption.
Although encryption under the GDPR isn’t mandatory, it is one of the security and personal data protection measures at your disposal. You should consider it, alongside other technical and organisational safeguards, to prepare your business for the GDPR.
