GDPR is coming into power in a month and it is high time make sure you use a GDPR-compliant backup for your Office 365.
From article 32 of GDPR derives the need to use a GDPR-compliant backup to have “the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services”
and “the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident” (source)
From this, we can see that organisations are held responsible for their ability to recover lost personal data that they hold in a timely manner. In order to remain compliant, they must have the necessary backup and disaster recovery strategies in place and actively take the time to regularly test the integrity and the effectiveness of the solution. Otherwise, your organisation could be looking to face heavy fines for failing to protect the data that you hold and monitor. This is the harsh reality that we are now living in, and we are now seeing more and more organisations falling victim to sophisticated ransomware and cyber attacks because they do not have the necessary backup and disaster recovery solutions in place. So, you have decided to outsource your backup and disaster recovery solution, that’s great, but you are only part of the way to becoming compliant. Now you need to ensure that your chosen provider is also following GDPR compliance. (source)
