21 Dec GDPR compliance and Mobile Device Management
The General Protection Data Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018. This is a huge overhaul of Europe’s data protection rules. Since the rules were created in the 1990s, the amount of digital information we create, capture, and store has greatly increased. The old rules are no longer fit for purpose. The solution is the GDPR. It will change how businesses and public sector organisations can handle the information of customers. It also gives consumers greater control over the data.
Businesses face multiple challenges when deploying smart phones across their workforce. Without a successful mobile security strategy in place, your business or organisation could suffer financial, regulatory and reputational consequences that follows a serious data security breach.
