centre and managed service provider, The Bunker, has introduced a
new colocation service which will help businesses become compliant in
the run up to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into
force and beyond.
This GDPR-ready colocation is the first solution in The GDPR Service Suite from The Bunker – a suite of contractually-backed pay-as-you-go services designed to address specific articles and technical measures within GDPR.
As part of the colocation solution, The Bunker will guarantee compliance with specific articles of the GDPR, including the security of processing, meeting the responsibilities of the data protection officer, the transfer of personal data to third-parties and more.
Some of the company’s capabilities that make this solution possible include its ISO 2700I accredited and ultra-secure ex-military facilities, a 24/7 service desk, strict adherence to codes of conduct and auditable assurance which allows site visits and offers full transparency of its services to external auditors.
Businesses opting for this service will also benefit from additional GDPR consultancy from the wider Cyberfort Group, which has been formed to bring together leaders in the field of data security to create a genuine end-to-end security proposition.
Phil Bindley, managing director at The Bunker said: “The messaging around GDPR over the past year has focussed too much on scaremongering and whether businesses will be ready in time for the May deadline. Organisations should view GDPR as an opportunity and facilitator for business growth rather than a barrier, and in order for this to happen, it’s important that any technological solutions have compliance inbuilt from the onset from suppliers that really understand the new regulation.
“We don’t compromise when it comes to industry standards, so providing a suite of services designed to specifically address certain articles of GDPR was the obvious next step in order to assist our customers with their compliance journey.”
