GDPR-compliant file transfers

Soon GDPR-compliant file transfers will be an essential process in your business. Find out why it should be one of your first steps towards GDPR compliance, and how to put it into place.



The 25th May 2018 is creeping up on us and we all know what that means: GDPR comes into full effect, with no grace period.

As we speak, Data Protection Officers (DPOs) across the globe are busy reviewing a whole range of systems in preparation: Call systems, anti-virus systems, data classification and data loss prevention systems and many more.

We believe that reviewing your data transfer and file sharing processes and systems should be one of your first actions. Systems are quick to implement, address several GDPR requirements simultaneously and demonstrate a positive step towards compliance.

We’ve recently published a White Paper, GDPR-compliant data transfer and file sharing. It’s written by our experts who’ve delved into the GDPR requirements and established exactly what that means for data transfer and file sharing.

It’s an essential read for anyone who’s responsible for their organisation’s compliance and covers the following topics:
