Data growth and compliance
Data is growing at an unprecedented rate with more data being created in the last two years than in the rest of history. Organisations now also have to protect more data from external sources such as mobile networks and cloud infrastructure.
Organisations have to comply with state legislation in addition to industry regulations.
Penalties for non-compliance
Data protection, sovereignty and security is more important than ever. Harsher penalties can now be given for the most serious data breaches. Some organisations are now having to employ data protection officers just to keep up with changes in legislation. How confident are you, if asked, that you would be able to locate all the data you hold on a customer or an employee?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is a piece of legislation that took effect in May 2018 and aims to update and strengthen data protection laws across Europe, as well as improving an individual’s rights when it comes to personal data.
In the UK, the organisation responsible for ensuring organisations and individuals are compliant with the GDPR is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). All data breaches must be reported to the ICO and will be investigated by them before any action is taken or penalty for non-compliance given.

Do you know where your data is?
As data grows and becomes decentralised it can be an almost impossible task to keep track of what it is and where it sits, creating compliance challenges for organisations.
To solve these challenges organisations need the ability to centralise data and quickly and easily analyse it, deleting or archiving outdated data; automating this process can present efficiency savings and reduce the risk of human error.
