GDPR IT Support

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, which came into effect in the UK from May 2018 (and Brexit will have no effect on this). It replaced the existing UK Data Protection Act 1998.

GDPR has changed the way all UK companies store and manage their business and personal data including employee data with the intent of strengthening and unifying data protection for all individuals. It gives people more control over how their personal data is used, and it provides businesses with a simpler, clearer legal environment in which to operate.

The Information Commissioners office (ICO) now has the ability to issue much larger fines for data breaches and non-compliance than under the DPA which is spurring many companies into action. But we believe GDPR should be seen as a great opportunity to get your organisations data and processes in order by following best practice.


Complying with GDPR

Organisations need to start by understanding their own data – what data they have, how they are storing it, how they use the data, and why they are keeping it and in turn carry out a risk assessment on that data. Data includes information you hold about your staff, your clients or service users and potentially, data that you might store on behalf of clients through services that you provide to them. Once this review is complete, you should update your internal information security policies to ensure you are taking appropriate steps to protect the information, and are using it in a way that wouldn’t be a surprise to the individuals concerned.

GDPR & Data Breaches

It is important to remember however, that GDPR is not just about making sure you’re only storing information legitimately, it’s also about ensuring that data you hold is properly protected. The ICO is unlikely to be issuing fines to SMEs that have sent an email to someone that believes they have opted out of a mailing list, but they are issuing fines to organisations that lose data in a data breach.

Our GDPR IT Support Services

GDPR compliance should be considered in the context of IT security and Cyber Essentials. Our experts are on hand to help you understand the practical steps you should take to ensure you are well protected. Our GDPR IT support services can include:

Cyber Essentials Certification

Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed scheme created to guide businesses on how to best protect themselves against ongoing cyber threats. The objective of Cyber Essentials is to verify that your business has implemented the necessary security controls required by the scheme to protect your business against common and sophisticated forms of cyber-attacks. Two levels of certification can be achieved – Level 1 and Level 2.

Technology is important, but a human firewall is also an integral part of your organisation’s IT security. If your employees haven’t had the appropriate training, you are leaving your organisation vulnerable to data breaches. At ramsac, we offer comprehensive training to all levels of your business. Training is interactive and includes board level briefings, end user training workshops and online learning portals.



We can provide a comprehensive audit of your organisation’s current IT, looking where there are opportunities for improvement as well as highlighting any vulnerabilities. An audit will identify key risk areas and review hardware, virus protection, anti-malware protection, external connections and more. We analyse your processes, infrastructure and communication with staff to provide you with a list of actions.
