Organisations face unprecedented levels of cyber security threats. To heighten business risk the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will, from the 25th May 2018, give data protection supervisory authorities like the UK Information Commissioners Office the power to fine organisations that fail to adequately protect personal data up to 20 million EUR or 4% of their global annual turnover.
Our leading cyber security and data protection consultants are constantly researching and developing new ways to help organisations to thwart cyber security threats. Our global privacy experts work closely with organisations and data protection supervisory authorities to help give effect to data protection and privacy laws. Helping you to keep your data secure and confidential.
IG Smart’s EU GDPR data protection consultancy services and solutions are designed to help you ensure that your organisation is compliant with the new EU data protection regulation (EU GDPR) by the time it comes into force on the 25th May 2018.
We help you to identify the aspects of EU GDPR which apply to your organisation, conducting robust gap and risk analysis.
