In May 2018, a European privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is due to take effect. This will enforce new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyse data tied to EU residents. This means GDPR will apply to every organisation in the UK even after the UK leaves the European Union, and any organisation that is not prepared could face fines up to £20 million or 4% or annual global turnover – whichever is higher. This law applies to the public sector the same as businesses, with high profile data and security leaks including the WannaCry fresh in the public’s mind, a need for a strong and proactive approach to GDPR and security should be a priority for every organisation.
risual and Microsoft offer a host of solutions to help public sector organisations prepare for the upcoming regulations, from improving your security posture to analysing weaknesses in your processes which could lead to GDPR non-compliance. Many Microsoft technologies have security solutions built in, and cloud services like Azure, Dynamics 365 and Office 365 are already compliant with role based access and security. Join representatives from both risual and Microsoft as we discuss how to begin planning for GDPR, what business changes public sector organisations typically need to make, how to assess your readiness based on your current infrastructure and what solutions are a priority for you.
