Data privacy and security are two of the most important aspects of any organisation.

Since 25 May 2018, GDPR means that companies across Europe must protect, govern and store their data securely.

GDPR is not a choice, it’s a requirement.  Should you be non-compliant there is potential for large fines of up to €20 million or 4% of total annual worldwide turnover, whichever is greater.

As a business it is essential that you have insight into your data to make more informed business and legal decisions – not only to comply with GDPR but to support your business growth goals of innovation and digital transformation.

Records management, electronic discovery, compliance, data storage, data migrations, controlling data growth, managing environment performance, disaster recovery, cost control – the list is endless and as data growth shows no signs of stopping, it's essential that you maintain full and transparent control of your environment. 


GDPR requires companies to gain increased visibility, control and have a concrete understanding of how the business is processing, storing and managing personal data. As a result of this, keeping personal information secure is central to the data protection mandate. As such, a data breach must be notified to the ICO within 72 hours.
