Data security is a key issue for all data processors and its not going to get any easier. The new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) come into force on 25th May 2018. This is very far reaching and gives data subjects many rights which data controllers and data processors need to deliver on request. Simplisys is in the process of writing briefing papers on the impact of the GDPR on organisations running service management solutions.
