Keeping you current with security, data protection and GDPR

Implementing best practice in information security and compliance for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is often seen as a headache and a “grudge purchase”, but SMEs are facing the same threat landscape as larger organisations – but without their budget.

Getting the right information for your business can be a challenging exercise of navigating legislation, regulation and conflicting advice.  We have a range of offerings to help protect, grow and optimise your business.

Through one to one consultations, we can identify the areas of your business that are causing concerns and advice actions to rectify.  At PAAC IT we will always try to understand underlying causes of the issues, and work alongside you to make the best decisions for the business.

 

  • GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018

    We have developed a series of templates, workbooks and training courses to make compliance with the regulations affordable and straight forward.

    Implementing the new General Data Protection Regulations to comply with the new Data Protection Act is a legal responsibility on all of us (businesses and non-profits). But how do you achieve this without consuming and inordinate amount of time and cost? We have spent many painful hours pouring over the regulations and the new Act, attending other training seminars and exchanging views via online GDPR forums - so you dont have to. We have distilled the requirements down into a clear set of actions together with templates and training to help you on your way.

    "What a productive and informative GDPR training course. I found it invaluable to ensure my company is compliant. I would not have been able to produce all the documentation, inform my staff or have the knowledge to process future data with out the help of Richard and Eddie". Lara - The Stove House Ltd

    GDPR
  • Training

    Equipping your staff with the knowledge they need to keep your systems and data safe is vitally important - and a legal requirement under the GDPR.
    72% of companies where the security policy was poorly understood had staff related security breaches and 50% of the worst breaches in the year were caused by inadvertent human error – both of which underline the importance of staff training.

    "Thank you for coming into the office on the 2nd & 3rd of July and presenting ‘The new Era of Data Protection’. We have had very positive feedback from members of staff and the course was a real eye opener for them.  All said that you managed to make very boring subject interesting. You will be our first port of call should there be any updates to legislation in the future Thank you again". Martin Robert, Managing Director, Lawrence Stringer, Director and Neil Stevenson, Director, GTA Civils.

Jane Nightingale
"On moving house we required help of PAAC to coordinate a tablet, PC and laptop with new security and email addresses and to ensure transfer of old contact details etc. Some of this work was undertaken by Darren in the Midhurst shop and some at our new address. Darren was professional and helpful with successful results. PAAC also followed up with care to ensure that all was well. "
A satisfied customer
"I have been dealing with PAAC IT, mostly in their Midhurst Office, but also in Haslemere, for the past three or four years. They clearly understand Macs and have given me good advice, and sorted out various issues for me. Things did go wrong with the network wireless adapters I had bought from them, but they were quick to ensure they were checked and replaced without a problem, and they followed up with me a month later to ensure all was OK. That’s good customer service!"

"I have been using the services of PAAC IT for over two years. During this time I have found the staff to be courteous, understanding, and very efficient. I have received first class service on each and every occasion – from keeping my ancient computer running, to advising and supplying a suitable replacement when it eventually crashed. All my transactions have been with the team in the Haslemere shop where Richard, Mark, Darren and Oliver have addressed my computer difficulties with great patience and kindness. To them I am eternally grateful."
