At BCQ Group, we are committed to ensuring you and your customer’s data is handled in a professional and secure manner at each stage of the process – from initial enquiry through to end product and delivery.
That commitment has seen BCQ Group achieve and retain the ISO27001 IT Security Standard since 2009, demonstrating year on year continuous development and investment in this area.
As you are probably aware, May 2018 will see the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) to the UK requiring tighter regulations and unprecedented penalties (up to 4% of global turnover together with Director accountability and liability) to every aspect of how data is managed from collection, processing and storage of that data.
To help our customers ensure they get their data to us in the most secure method, BCQ strongly recommend Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). SFTP ensures that your customer data is encrypted at the point it is transferred, providing maximum security and compliance to GDPR, reducing the risk of breaches and subsequent penalties.
We have created a simple SFTP User Guide to help you get set and ahead of the game – just follow this link!
