GDPR, Compliance & Standards

The EU General Data Protection Regulation has fundamentally transformed how businesses handle personal data. Any company that does not follow these new norms faces severe fines, potentially up to €20 million or 4% of annual global revenue, depending on the severity and circumstances of the violation. In other words, GDPR compliance is not optional. 

The GDPR sets out seven key principles:

  •     Lawfulness, fairness and transparency
  •     Purpose limitation
  •     Data minimisation
  •     Accuracy
  •     Storage limitation
  •     Integrity and confidentiality (security)
  •     Accountability

By working closely with clients to fully understand the threats they face we can complete our informed risk assessment that underpins the system design. This enables them to withstand potentially complex assaults by determined adversaries.
