Cyber and Data Security and GDPR:
what you should do

The enforcement of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) means that your business can be fined up to €20m or 4% of your turnover (whichever is the greater) for breaches of your customers’ data. Here’s what you need to do now:

  • Appoint a senior manager with some expertise to take responsibility for your cyber and data security and draw up an information security policy
  • Make sure you understand your obligations to notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) within 72 hours (and, in some instances, the individuals affected) of personal data breaches
  • Consider whether the confidential data you hold should be pseudonymised and encrypted

What to do if you suffer a cyber attack:
Towergate Insurance Brokers 3-step checklist

  1. Log and monitor any suspicious activity This can help to inform you as soon as a breach happens, giving you a chance to respond quickly and limit potential damage. It’s also useful to have a trail of activity carried out by the hacker.
  2. Regularly back up your data This will make it easier to access data – reducing downtime – in the event of a breach. But be aware that there’s a risk that you may restore the same vulnerabilities which caused the breach in the first place – consult a specialist on how to mitigate this risk.
  3. Inform your cyber insurance provider If you don’t have cyber insurance, Towergate Insurance Brokers can create a policy tailored to your needs that provides cover for a range of different cyber-attack scenarios.
