GDPR: Bigger data breach fines on the horizon for SMEs

August 04, 2017

Take note:

Helen Barge, owner of Leamington-based Risk Evolves, warns that the regulation could also see larger firms seeking a share of the cost of the fines incurred after a breach, because the law will widen to hold every organisation in the supply chain responsible.

“If you are a small company supplying a larger business and you have access to or are provided with information about their clients or employees, you need to think very carefully about how you protect that data,” she says, noting that SMEs sometimes overlook critical parts of cyber security.
