Data Breach Protection
Recovery and Testing
- The ability to quickly restore data availability and access in the event of an incident
- The ability to test and assess the effectiveness of data protection plans
Third-Party ComplianceWhether it's working with a managed service provider or Disaster-as-a-Recovery (DRaaS) specialist, outsourcing is a cost-effective option for organizations that lack the resources to tackle disaster recovery in-house. According to the EU, any company that handles EU consumer data falls under the data processor category. The new regulations hold organizations and their third-party providers to the same standards. This essentially makes GDPR compliance one more qualification to consider for those looking to outside expertise for help.
Is It Too Late?The deadline for GDPR compliance has come and gone. However, it is not too late to get your proverbial house in order. Contrary to all the scary media hype, simply missing the deadline doesn't automatically mean hefty fines are coming your way. According to the UK ICO (Information Commissioner's Office), maximum fines will be a last resort and only employed in the most extreme circumstances. With that said, time is of the essence. At the end of the day, the GDPR largely re-enforces measures that should be standard in any organization that manages sensitive consumer data. There is still an opportunity to educate and train your staff on the essentials. The sooner you incorporate GDPR compliance into your disaster recovery strategy, the sooner you can relax and focus on simply running your business.
