As a small business owner you have to wear a lot of hats. Chances are GDPR and Cybersecurity aren't either of those hats. Our approach to GDPR is to look at it as a marketing tool. Its a way of demonstrating to your customers that you're ethical and that you're running a professional business. We interpret the regulations and requirements into what's relevant for your business. And then we help you put everything in place. You decide how much or how little you want to do, and we do the rest.
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Initiatives like Cybersecurity Awareness Month are great because they remind us to shake it up a bit. Do something different. Inject some fun into it. After all, if you don’t get buy-in from your staff and colleagues, its just a box-ticking exercise. We've put together 5 simple ideas you can action in your organisation.
The Data Protection Commission has issued a warning that from October website owners will no longer get away with offering a banner that says "OK" to all cookies. We set out the three essential steps you need to take to make sure your cookies are done right.
We're all optimists by nature and we're all busy. This doesn't bode well for dealing with our cybersecurity. With 43% of all cybercrime aimed at small business, I've been working on a solution that gives small businesses a piece of the cybersecurity pie. And it's based on my 'just one thing' principle which does away with the overwhelm and the fear factor.
" EAS contracted an excellent individual to review our data security, manuals and procedures, and GDPR compliance. The project has been very successful, our systems were all given excellent reviews but of course with various suggestions for improvements and best practice in regards actual data security, which we are implementing. So the value add has been worth all the money spent on it."
