Beginning on the 25th of May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into full effect.
Articles 39 and 47 of GDPR require companies to raise the level of security awareness of their staff. So in order to be compliant companies have to undertake training of their staff.
We’ve worked with clients across the globe to build security-training programs that educate their teams to support and safeguard their systems and data. Our Platform helps you to deliver that training in a very efficient and cost effective way.

This strengthens the rights of individuals and increases the obligations on organisations. However, if your board, senior management or staff were asked about it today, how many would be aware of it and how prepared are you?
Conversely, we understand that you may be looking for someone to help you understand and comply with the upcoming legislation. But there seems to be a small army of software and consultancy companies offering “silver bullet” solutions for compliance that seem to be too good to be true.
By the time they these organisations realize the scale of the challenge they will be forced to seek assistance from a limited pool of knowledgeable and expensive external resources. For this reason, achieving compliance in time will end up costing a lot more than they bargained for.
The cost of failing to demonstrate compliance can be far greater however. Organisations that are found to be non-compliant can be liable to fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20M, depending on which is greater.
With the growing threat of cyber risk to our data, we can particularly point to our skills and experience in cyber defenses – especially in the “Phishing” area where the human element may unfortunately result in our otherwise excellent technology defenses being defeated, persona data being compromised and a possible breach of GDPR obligations with the threat of fines.
As it stands, GDPR is set to be one of the most significant pieces of legislation of recent times: impacting cybersecurity, data privacy, and compliance requirements. Any organization within the European Union, or which markets goods and services to EU residents, will be subject to these new data administration regulations.
Ultimately, every organization that processes personal data through their IT systems will require the skills and resources to plan, prepare, and deliver on the protections outlined in the GDPR. Compliance will be more than a matter of legal and financial necessity for organizations, consumers are demanding a higher standard of governance with their data.
