Manage overview

A major step in working towards General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance is ensuring you know your data. Who accesses the data you hold? Where is it held? How quickly can it be recovered? Who decides what is kept or deleted? What does sensitive data look like?

These are just some of the questions to consider before the GDPR regulations are enforced in May 2018. The answers will help you to understand your data and through this, identify the best way to manage it.

Identify sensitive data

The regulations being introduced in GDPR means that having a thorough knowledge of the data you store is more important than ever before. To secure and protect personal data, you need to know which parts are sensitive or high risk. This ensures the most appropriate security measures can be implemented to keep the data protected.

Quick data retrieval is key

Day-to-day IT tasks, such as daily backups or archiving, will become vital when GDPR is enforced. This is because there will be a greater emphasis on data retrieval. Managing personal data efficiently will facilitate a much speedier retrieval process.

We can provide wide ranging support

Being able to confidently respond to Subject Access Requests in an efficient and timely manner will also be a huge step towards GDPR readiness. Having an easy, indexed method of data retrieval and restoration will help ease your transition into GDPR compliance.
