GDPR changing data management
British Airways system failure over the Bank Holiday weekend probably affected more people than the "Wannacry" hack did.
It will have more compensatory implications due to the number of people affected, the delays in restoring the computer backup systems was not helped due to the IT support being outsourced to India, consequently the backup and restoration systems not being able to restore operations as quickly as any traveller stuck for hours waiting for a flight would like.
The implications in one year's time is much more salient - GDPR is changing how data protection, data storage, data preservation, data wiping and disaster recovery will be handled for years to come. If there is a "data breach" then the fines are already significant but after June 2018 they become commercially concerning as global companies can be fined up to 4% of global turnover.
What our customers say about us
A 1TB hard drive failure with many valued photographs led me to R3. Very impressed with their calm professional approach, rapid courier collection and excellent ongoing email updates with full data recovery. Price? Well, what price memories? Highly recommended.
