Whether you are undergoing a refresh, relocating offices or beginning your journey to the cloud, you will need to ensure that your data is dealt with securely and for this, you will need to ensure that you engage with a reliable data processor. With so many companies claiming to be experts in IT disposal it is difficult to know who you can trust. To make sure you receive the IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) service that you and your data deserve, we’ve put together four key questions to ask your ITAD provider, to ensure you choose a reliable ITAD company.
There are a number of new and updated regulations coming into place in 2018, leading many businesses to seriously reconsider their approach to data security and how they manage sensitive data. We have heard plenty about the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) that will replace the current Data Protection Act, but there is another 2018 regulation that firms in the financial services industry must also consider: the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II). The new regulation will come into place as early as 3rd January 2018, meaning that businesses in this industry must act as soon as possible to ensure that they are compliant.
EOL IT Services Ltd are delighted to announce becoming a Crown Commercial Supplier after being awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Technology Services 2 Framework – RM3804.
With an estimated £3bn of IT investment over the next four years expected to be spent through the agreement, it links public sector bodies with suppliers that can provide specialist IT services.
Designed to service the smallest of IT needs (from replacing and managing a small desktop computer estate to the replacement of larger and more critical central government systems at the Government’s Official, Secret and Top Secret security classifications), CCS is estimating that the framework will help public bodies save more than £180 million over four years – money that can be spent on delivering frontline services.
When the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in May 2018 it will transform the way that any organisation has to look after personal data. Increasingly however, we are finding organisations are “GDPR-ed” out – exhausted and already switched off by the mountain of information out there. So, why is it important and how can you get your house in order?
GDPR matters – So what is the GDPR?
It is a new EU regulation governing how organisations should store, handle and protect anyone’s personal data.
EOL is delighted to announce that it has appointed Steve Inglessis as Commercial Director.
