Outsource Solutions asks “Is Your Business Ready for GDPR?”
Outsource Solutions are a long established Managed IT Services Provider, focused on delivering premier Customer Service to our customers, who all experience Better Business Through Better Technology.
We are delighted to have recently hosted another successful event in our Thought Leadership Programme this time covering GDPR, at Titanic Belfast on 18th Jan 2018. Our Key Speaker and recognised GDPR expert Orlagh Kelly was joined on stage by our partners from 8×8, Pure and Microsoft, who all provided practical advice and guidance on how businesses can and need to address their GDPR obligations. The positive feedback and exceptional turnout by business leaders from a diverse range of sectors (industry, legal, finance, service providers etc) underpinned the success of the event.
As a Managed IT Services Provider, Outsource considered it a basic requirement that every member of its own staff were independently GDPR trained and certified, in order that they can provide informed advice and support around the implications of GDPR on our customer’s businesses. The event allowed us and our guest speakers to spend some time explaining the importance of GDPR, what it actually means and how it will impact all businesses going forward, with living examples throughout the day of issues and remedies. It also provided us with an opportunity to highlight how with correct support and guidance technology offers solutions and assistance for businesses on their GDPR compliance journey.
With the GDPR enforcement date of 25th May 2018 fast approaching the simplest advice from Outsource is spend time understanding the impact GDPR will have on your business and plan your next steps to ensure you are fully complaint. With the introduction of new fines of up to 4% of global annual turnover or up to £17m, a breach of GDPR by your business could have significant financial and reputational consequences. Key decision makers in every organisation need to be aware of the implications and ensure policies and procedures are in place, that staff at every level are trained and that security and systems are all fully compliant.
