How do you know if your messaging solution is fit for the 21st century and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)? If for no other reason than the potential fines, compliance matters.
Historically, email systems just did email and that was good enough. With the new regulations there is significant onus on the owners and processors of data to ensure that it is only used properly and that it is not leaked. Traditional email systems, such as those based around web servers, typically do not cut the mustard. They send out emails with no guarantee that they came from a legitimate sender and can be read by anyone. Perfect for scammers and data leaks.

Of course, within any system the weakest link in security is the users. Here is a link to our GDPR master class https://bit.ly/GDPR-MC. In the master class you will find out about many of the requirements of the GDPR and how they will affect your organisation.
