With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25th May 2018, there are a number of ways we can support you on your compliance journey. We can deliver actionable insight that allows you to comply with the data protection regulations.
The General Data Protection Regulation is a piece of legislation, set out by the EU, to protect individuals’ rights when it comes to data protection. It applies to all EU member states, EU residents and visitors to the EU so regardless of where your guests are from, the regulation applies to them. This also includes UK individuals and businesses because the legislation comes into force on 25th May 2018, before the Brexit date – and will remain in place after Brexit.
We offer a number of services that assist hotels in becoming GDPR compliant, and these include:
Security patch management – we know systems and hardware used by hoteliers can vary due to budget and requirements, so security patch management is a vital part of maintaining watertight security practices. Using multiple systems to deliver the service your guests expect increases the risk of a vulnerability becoming exposed. This service ensures that all security patches are carried out, across a variety of devices, and monitoring and reporting is also included.
Security protection – A secure infrastructure reduces the likelihood of a successful threat infiltrating your IT systems. Considering the number of guests who visit your hotel, the plethora of devices they may have with them and their varying security measures, ensuring that the best security protocols are being followed cannot be overlooked. This service also includes regular monitoring and reporting.
Risk Intelligence Reporting – Data is held everywhere, from your reception to your housekeeping staff. You need to know exactly where your data is and how it’s stored, so our risk intelligence service scours your IT infrastructure to ensure that you have a complete overview of these locations. It includes downloaded files, as well as local folders and files.
However, GDPR is about more than simply knowing where your data is and having a stronger hold of your IT systems. We can also review your organisational data management processes and establish compliant file and permissions structures – especially useful if you have a high turnover or seasonal staff – giving you greater transparency across your entire hotel.
