2018 is the year of GDPR which comes into force on May 25th. GDPR is data protection for the digital age and all businesses need to be compliant before May 2018.

SpiderGroup, in our role as data processor for many of you, are committed to being GDPR complaint way before the deadline. We are investing in training for our staff and will be making available updated policies and terms in due course.

Over the coming months, you can expect to see more from us in regard to GDPR!

Are you prepared?

Over the past two years, we have been helping customers to take advantage of all that Office 365 can offer. As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we can help you adapt Office 365 to your business requirements which is especially relevant now. If you haven't yet made the leap, now is the time as Office 365 includes features which can ease your journey to GDPR compliance:

Intune

Microsoft's Intune service allows you to easily apply compliance policies to PCs and mobile devices. This provides you the confidence that company data is completely secure, wherever it’s used, and you retain the control.

Two factor authentication

Enabling two factor authentication for device logins adds an essential layer of security to your accounts, protecting data from the most common types of attacks. Deploying this across your workforce will reduce the risk of data breaches.

Data Loss Prevention

Easily apply policies to your data, preventing critical personal data from getting into the wrong hands.

We can assist you with any additional protection you'd like in place, either under the role of your IT provider or under our obligations as a data processor. If you have any specific concerns, questions or require copies of any of our policies please don't hesitate to ask.
