GDPR & Data Protection
Government Departments, Corporations including banks and Individuals interact with each other every day. When users log onto social media, online banking or shop online there is more than the personal touch to your interaction, there is a digital footprint.
Recent data loss, recent misuse of data and data breaches are all too common nowadays. Scam phonecalls, phishing emails and hacking social media has become very familiar trends for those wishing to clone an individual’s data and use it for fraud.
Online crime and fraud is becoming increasingly noticeable and is brought about by our very own data.
What is an example of a Data Breach?
When you purchase an item in a shop and they ask you if they can email you the receipt, they are collecting your personal data. What happens later is that you receive emails from the shop with the latest offers. When this is done without your permission, it is against the law.
