Do you have a plan in place with GDPR compliance?

The loss of data can be disastrous for any business or company. Whilst data can sometimes be retrieved, this can be a costly and time-consuming process if a disaster recovery plan has not been executed.

Of course, no-one expects to lose crucial business data but it occurs all too often. Whether it’s down to human error or a targeted cyber-attack, the consequences of a data leak can be far-reaching. In addition to affecting business operations, a loss of data is likely to attract bad press.

Once publicised, any security threat could cost your business customer loyalty. As a result, revenue could be negatively affected and some businesses may struggle to recover.

By preparing for such situations, however, companies can avoid the disastrous consequences of data loss. Getting expert help when devising a disaster recovery plan and business continuity solutions, for example, can make sure that your business operations are able to continue and that data can be retrieved quickly.

Will the GDPR change your business process?

With the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) being fully enforced in just a few months, your business may need to increase network security and apply advanced threat protection to your software.

Any business which stores client or customer data is likely to be affected by the GDPR and there will be costly sanctions for companies which fail to adhere to the new regulations. Due to these increasing demands, many businesses are using managed computer services to make sure their systems are operating as they should.

As a result of the regulations, many companies are taking the opportunity to upgrade their existing software and operating systems. Many businesses are installing Microsoft Office 365 and Windows 10 to existing computers, for example.

However, any significant change to a company network or business infrastructure will need IT support. Whilst businesses should benefit from the upgrades, many will need to use outsourced advice and IT support once new programs and software have been installed.

Outsourcing your IT support requirements

By relying on managed computer services and outsourcing IT support requirements, businesses of all sizes can benefit from IT help when they need it. Often more cost-effective than hiring in-house professionals, outsourced IT support is an ideal solution for businesses across all sectors.
