Cyber Security for SMEs and the impact of GDPR

With less than two years left before GDPR becomes legal legislation, we will talk you through the cyber security implications of what’s ahead and how to get prepared as a business.

This session will help SMEs understand the different cyber security strategies available and how to leverage them to get ahead of the curve.

Quorum Cyber

In March 2016, IT services and consultancy company Quorum Network Resources Ltd created Quorum Cyber, a dedicated security company, offering end-to-end cyber security solutions.

Quorum Cyber was created to protect and defend our customers against threats such as phishing, hacking, malware, ransomware and other types of cyber-crime.

We offer a portfolio of services including strategic consulting, cyber managed services, penetration testing and a collection of outsourced SME specialist solutions.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the EU. It also addresses export of personal data outside the EU. The primary objectives of the GDPR are to give citizens back the control of their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. When the GDPR takes effect it will replace the data protection directive from 1995.

Perhaps confusingly for some, there is a new directive as well as a new regulation; it will apply to police procedures, which will continue to vary from one Member State to the other.

Please register now to avoid disappointment!

We hope you can make it.
