General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Expert Q&A

The European Union’s (EU) new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018 and most businesses will have to prepare in order to become compliant.

It aims to influence responsible data practices on a global scale and tackle the inconsistency in data protection laws across EU member states.

Cloud-Hosted Desktops

The way we work is evolving fast, and subsequently, the way we store crucial data safely is rapidly progressing. It’s more vital than ever for businesses to offer a flexible work-home environment or risk losing talented staff and money when natural causes mean employees can’t get to the office. With the flexibility and efficiency of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) office environments quickly becoming the norm, data storage has to catch up to counter the increased security concerns associated with employee-owned devices, which range from sophisticated phishing attempts to human error. Cloud-hosted desktops – Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS) – offer a solution to these issues. So what are the advantages of cloud-hosted desktops? Which cloud-hosted desktop is right for your business? Download our whitepaper now to discover how to decipher which cloud-hosted desktop service is right for you and how to make the most of your VDI or DaaS solution.


Privacy Shield: The New Data Transfer Agreement

Safe Harbour, the data protection principle set up to allow unhindered data transfer between the European Union (EU) and the United States (US), was ruled invalid in October 2015. In February 2016, Privacy Shield was announced as its replacement, implemented to offer clarity and security for businesses worried about data transfers between the European Economic Area (EEA) and the US. But there’s still confusion and ambiguity as to what Privacy Shield entails. Does Privacy Shield solve the problems highlighted by Safe Harbour’s invalidation? Can businesses trust Privacy Shield to guarantee the safety of their data overseas – or does the uncertainty and ambiguity that Safe Harbour was initially criticised for still persist? Download our whitepaper for insight into how the new agreement and upcoming EU regulations impact upon your business.
