Data Privacy

As per subject authority on this matter – ICO (Information Commissioner Office, UK), Data Privacy and Protection service helps organisations identify and mitigate privacy concerns. By complying to regulatory and legal requirements, businesses leverage data and streamline their processes to deliver effective results both at operational and security levels.

By not dealing with data privacy challenges correctly, organisations that collect, process or share personal data are putting themselves at risk. It is important for stakeholders to know ‘when is an organisation required to carry out a data protection impact assessment?’ or ‘whether an organisation is taking enough proactive approach to cover the blind spots of data privacy’.

New security threats and new regulations such as GDPR, DPA 2018, CCPA, data privacy is fast becoming a benchmark in how user data especially personal records are dealt with.

Key Benefits of Data Privacy Services

The nature of cybersecurity threats is one of constant evolution; growing in sophistication and changing in order to exploit new vulnerabilities and evade detection. This is why you need to perform regular security assessments to protect your network.

Our managed security services offer you a security team working for you at a fraction of cost should this be an in-house team. This would also incur expense on acquiring technology stack.

There is no magic bullet or one size fits all cybersecurity solution that will protect your network. In order to make sure you’re protected, you need continuous security assessments and up to date solutions that keep your organisation ahead of the curve.

Cybersecurity is only effective when it is proactive. By identifying weaknesses and vulnerabilities before they are exploited, you ensure the integrity of your network. Frequent security assessments also create a more efficient system, helping to prevent data loss and minimise any downtime that would affect your business and your customers.
