What you need to know about data security and your business ahead of January 2020
Businesses across the UK may be at risk after January 2020, including a number of TSG customers.
In this webinar, TSG’s security specialist Grant Campbell will cover the actions your business must take in the next few months to mitigate the risks posed by remaining on unsupported Microsoft systems.
This information is absolutely essential to your business and, if you’ve taken no action to update your outdated Microsoft systems or you’re unsure what to do, you can’t afford to miss this webinar.
With the massive surge of cyber-attacks in 2019 – businesses are experiencing more attempted hacks and breaches than ever before – you need to know this vital information to keep your business and data safe.
If you don’t take action before your Microsoft systems become unsupported, your business could become more vulnerable to the ever-increasing cyberthreat landscape. In addition to the risk of losing your data or access to your vital systems, you could even be fined under the GDPR for negligence.
Official statement from the Information Commissioner’s Office
“Failure to patch known vulnerabilities is a factor that the ICO takes into account when determining whether a breach of the seventh principle of the Data Protection Act is serious enough to warrant a civil monetary penalty.”
- Nigel Houlden, Head of Technology Policy, ICO
Official statement from the National Cyber Security Centre
“Exploitation of known vulnerabilities in software remains the greatest cause of security incidents. Patching — the process of applying updates from software developers, hardware suppliers and vendors, to either enhance functionality or to improve security — is one of the most important things you can do to mitigate vulnerabilities.”

Additionally, if you choose to take no action to protect your business and you fall victim to a cyber-attack or a critical system failure, this is likely to lead to charges for any rectification work that may be required as a result.
