Proteus-Cyber Launches First Comprehensive Software Toolkit for GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR ) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a Regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses export of personal data outside the EU. The Regulation will apply to most organisations, worldwide, that hold personal data on any EU citizen. GDPR comes into force on the 25th May 2018.

GDPR is possibly the biggest legislative change of our time and will have huge implications for businesses that deal with personal data. The consequences of non-compliance are massive. Not only will a business be dealing with the direct financial cost of a breach in itself, severe fines of up to €20m or 4% of turnover, will be imposed. Add to that the irreparable loss of reputation and undoubted loss of clients, and the commercial enormity of GDPR starts to emerge. Businesses need to act now to ensure they are GDPR ready before the deadline.

Risk management is at the heart of GDPR and therefore systems that can’t support GDPR will fast become obsolete or expose their users to the risk of substantial fines. Proteus-Cyber’s products are ideally placed to help get organisations ready for GDPR.
