Backup and Disaster Recovery in a GDPR World
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to further the protections around the privacy and integrity of personal data of EU citizens. One of the key changes implemented by the law enhances the rights of the data subjects, which includes a data subject having access to their personal data, requesting that it be ported, and restricting the processing of such data. The MSP armed with a proper managed backup and recovery solution is better prepared to meet the challenge of honouring these data subject requests.
Fortunately, most MSPs already prioritise daily and incremental backups and have a fair understanding about how to execute a business continuity plan. Even if there weren’t compliance or security concerns to consider, having your standard services contract include robust hybrid cloud backup simply makes a lot of sense.
