How to Survive Against Increasing Regulatory Compliance & Industry Standards

UK Top 4 Compliance Regulations

General Data Protection Regulation
The General Data Protection Regulation
Undoubtedly, the most famous of them all. The GDPR came into force on May 25th of 2018 and affects almost all organisations in a European member state, including the UK.

The major focus of this regulation was to harmonise Europe’s fragmented and localised data protection legislation and increase the accountability for processing data subject’s personal data.
NIS Directive
Network & Information Systems (NIS) Directive
Over shadowed by its larger and more controversial European legislative cousing (the GDPR), the NIS directive hasn’t really arrived with the fanfare that it deserved.

Targeted toward two distinct camps, the fundamental purpose for the directive is to ensure that those services and their providers upon which we are heavily reliant on, such as energy, water and now internet services, are resilient against cyber-attacks.
Minimum Security Standards
Minimum Security Standards
June of 2018 saw the release of the Minimum Cybersecurity Standard from the UKs National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC). A minimum standard of security which is to be achieved by all government departments, organisations, bodies and contractors, without exception.

The standard has been broken down into 10 parts and grouped into five sections.
Cyber Essentials
Cyber Essentials

Open to both public and private organisations, the Cyber Essentials programme is seen a minimum-security level which all organisations in the UK should achieve. Your customers, suppliers and partners can be secure in the knowledge that your IT network meets an accepted definition of “secure”.
