Data security is a priority for all organisations, however, with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) it’s more important than ever to understand the significance of protecting against cyber-attacks and breaches. Having a detailed understanding of the personal data that is stored and how this is currently protected gives your organisation an opportunity to ensure it has the most appropriate system in place to defend against security incidents.
As part of the preparation for GDPR, it’s a good idea to undertake a review of your security infrastructure and plan for a cyber security incident. Understand what the response to a breach would look like, ensure the correct tools are available for analysis, and consider using an external cyber incident team who will rapidly respond if an issue does arise.
The idea of taking preventative measures against internal and external IT security threats is not a new concept to most organisations. From anti-virus to proactive threat monitoring and full data loss prevention solutions, you will probably already have a core security infrastructure in place. This may include access control, encryption, web blocking and filters, but there are additional ways to ensure access to sensitive data is controlled. Softcat can work with you to tailor a solution to meet your organisation's specific requirements.
