After a considerable period of preparation, we’re pleased to announce that Miromedia are now Cyber Essentials Certified, and GDPR approved via the IASME Consortium Government standard.
The importance of ensuring Miromedia as an agency is run in compliance with the new data protection laws is paramount, both to us and to our clients. We genuinely welcome the General Data Protection Regulation in its capacity to force us all to be more aware and responsible with data online, and whilst as a set of rules it can be prohibiting in terms of marketing, we do feel it will do us all some good in the long run.
So what have we been doing?
It all started with a Risk Audit. And well, one thing led to another and before we knew it we were writing policies and procedures left right and centre, updating data storage systems and ensuring the team are all on the same page to ensure we’re consistent in the way we work with clients and their data. After all, our clients are the reason we’re here, and the reason we love what we do. Whilst data is important to us all personally, at Miromedia it’s critical we manage data professionally. We recently completed the UK government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme, which focuses on the most essential technical security controls, alongside the IASME risk-based approach to making sure data protection is at the heart of everything we do.
