Sibyl from Kingston Technology came to our office to train our team in the new GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation).
It is a new regulation which aims to strengthen data protection rights for individuals within the European Union.
It replaces the 1995 directive and aims to future-proofdata protection in the EU, whilst also unifying various national laws.
The GDPR will also apply to non-EUorganisations which process data of EU residents
From 2018 onwards companies should use state-of-the art security to protect personal data.
In case of a data breach businesses will face fines of up to 4% of their annual global revenue
or €20 million (whichever is greater) and must inform their national supervisory authority.
Encryption is the best way to be safe.
Kingston encrypted products minimize the risks of moving data on USB drives and ensure your critical and sensitive data is protected.
If a USB is lost or stolen and the data on it is encrypted then this is a security breach not a data breach and may not have to be reported.
Get a small but importantitem ticked off the GDPR to-do list by investing in 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption.
She also prepared a delicious meal for our team. :-)
