COVID-19 SERVICE UPDATE

During these challenging times, we send you and your families our best wishes.

Having supported Macs for over 30 years it has taught us that Mac issues do not respect lockdowns or global pandemics, they just happen regardless.

At Dejac we are determined to maintain our high standards of support to the Mac business community whilst abiding by the UK government’s social distancing guidelines. This can be achieved in several ways including helpdesk Mac support, remote consultancy and doorstep collections for repairs.

Please get in touch if there is any Mac issue you would like us to address on 01494 809551 or [email protected]

GDPR...What is it...?...and why you should know about it.

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. It is new EU legislation that the UK will adopt (regardless of Brexit) on the 25th May 2018. I have just spent a week doing a foundation course and exam on the subject so I feel much more qualified to talk about it now than a fortnight ago.

GDPR is going to be the biggest shake-up in data protection legislation for over 20 years and every business and organisation (regardless of size) throughout Europe will have to become compliant or potentially face large fines. It gives great power to the individual over what happens to any "personal data" companies may hold on them. The EU defines personal data as "any information relating to an identifiable person". This could be as little as a name and a postal address or even a picture! Essentially, if you have such data somewhere within your organisation, you have to demonstrate that you are gathering, storing and erasing it both responsibly and securely. But shouldn't you be doing that anyway? 

GDPR compliance even for a small company will not be achieved in a weekend and with fines up to a maximum of 4% of turnover (not profit), it is much more sensible and cost-effective to comply.

Further reading (and there is plenty of it) can found on the Information Commissioners Office website. Or you could just Google "GDPR" and surprise yourself why you haven't heard of this impending legislation.

Dejac can explain the scope of the new legislation to your business, secure your network and help rationalise your data.  So if you are ready to start your journey towards GDPR compliance then please drop me a line.
