We approach GDPR by focussing on protecting your business. If you begin with cybersecurity, GDPR naturally follows. Regardless of size every business needs to protect themselves from ransomware attacks and data breaches. We follow what's happening in the cyber security world so we can provide you with practical solutions that you can put in place to protect your business and your data.
When you engage with GDPR the aim is to protect your key business assets like your client lists and your website or social media followers. Most data breach incidents are down to people, processes and inadequate policies. These frequently involve internal users making mistakes, including the incorrect disclosure of data. We remedy this through our excellent training; by translating the regulations into something understandable; and providing solutions proportionate to your risk.
People influence security more than technology or policy, and cybercriminals know how to exploit human behaviors. Security and risk management leaders should invest in tools that increase awareness and influence behavior that supports security business objectives through computer-based training.—Gartner Report, 2019

" 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."
