Businesses are under an increased threat of a data breach. Data breaches are becoming an increasingly common occurrence and current regulations require each business to be able to demonstrate they have taken every possible step to keep their data secure, conform to GDPR compliance and followed the necessary processes within their ISO accreditations.
Data breaches can impact a business in a variety of ways.
It is vital to assess your risk exposure regarding the security of personal data.
What is Data Protection?
Data protection is all about constructing a plan to protect information, in accordance with GDPR compliance at a minimum. Data privacy includes protecting data while also maintaining availability and integrity of the data interest and information shared with a person entering your organizations site, systems or CRM.
Best practices involve data controllers creating a data security strategy of some sort, designed to benefit users and the organization. Utilizing protection is a must for any organization that collects or handles sensitive data from people in any way. The definition of data protection is pretty clear. We are responsible for preventing the loss of data in any amount should some sort of incident occur.

Assessing Your Risk Exposure Regarding The Security of Personal Data

With a greater understanding of current vulnerabilities, businesses are able to create policies to mitigate against potentially damaging data breach.
A Cleartec Discovery Audit is a great way to start.
Data Protection and Compliance: What You Need to Know
Data protection and data privacy are often terms that are used interchangeably. However, they are really two separate terms.
Data protection is all about the policies and ensuring a data controller and a strategy is in place to protect the private data. Data privacy puts actions into place to ensure that the privacy of personal data is accounted for. Try not to mistake the two, even though they work closely together.
When considering data protective stances, there are guidelines for the UK set about by European Parliament (EU), as well as guidelines for the United States that have been placed as regulations. Data protection officers have a big role under the GDPR rulings to protect personal data with a minimum for compliance standards.
