As GDPR nears its implementation date - May 25, 2018 - many organisations are still struggling to understand the impact of this far reaching regulation. While every organisations' explicit needs differ, specific requirements (facilitating a DSAR, identifying Personally Identifiable Information, supporting remediation activities) will need to be performed by all organisations subject to the GDPR. 100% of E.U. organisations of all types and sizes will need to conform to the new regulation. Analysts report approximately 80% of worldwide organisations with relational business activities in Europe, will also have to conform to the regulation.

Strong commitment to information security, gains Caretower Cyber Essentials accreditation
Caretower is pleased to have been awarded the Cyber Essentials certification. The certification, which is part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Program, demonstrates Caretower’s commitment to cyber security, ability to safeguard customer information, and reinforces our capabilities as a managed security services provider.
Launched by the UK Government in 2014, the Cyber Essentials scheme is focused on providing organisations with clarity on what essential security controls they need to have in place to reduce the risk posed by threats on the Internet. The scheme addresses five key controls that, when implemented correctly according to the government, could prevent around 80% of cyber attacks.
Caretower was awarded the accreditation after meeting the standards of an independent assessment against the five security controls. Achieving certification also helps in addressing compliance requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which requires that organisations should implement appropriate technical controls to ensure the security of personal data.
Commenting on the accreditation, Phydos Neophytou, Managing Director at Caretower said ‘’We are delighted to have received this certification as it is a testament to our commitment to best practice in safeguarding of data and information, and provides our customers and partners with further confidence in working with us.’’

Important Volume Licensing Update from Microsoft
We wanted to give you advance notification of some important changes to Microsoft software and cloud pricing coming in January 2017.
Microsoft has announced that from January 1, 2017, they will be increasing British pound pricing to harmonise prices for enterprise software and cloud services within the EU/EFTA region. Microsoft periodically assess the impact of local pricing of their products and services to ensure there is reasonable alignment across the region and this change is an outcome of this assessment. These changes are similar to the recent harmonisation adjustments to pricing in Norwegian krone and Swiss franc that were made in April 2016.
Starting January, British pound prices for on-premises enterprise software will increase by 13% to realign close to euro levels. Most enterprise cloud prices in British pounds will increase by 22% to realign close to euro levels. Even after this adjustment, customers across the region buying in British pound will still find Microsoft cloud offerings highly competitive. For indirect sales where Microsoft products are sold through resellers, final prices and currency of sale will continue to be determined by resellers. In the EU/EFTA region, partners will continue to have access to prevailing prices in euro, Norwegian krone, Swiss franc, Swedish krona, and Danish krone, along with revised prices in British pounds.
For business customers, these changes will not affect existing orders under annuity volume licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection. For example, customers with Enterprise Agreements have price protection on previously ordered enterprise software and cloud services, and will not experience a price change during the term of their agreement. Similarly, business customers with cloud commitment subscriptions such as Office 365 also receive price protection during their subscription term, which is normally twelve months from the start of paid subscription.
Prices for new product additions under existing volume licensing agreements and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the price list at the time of order. This pricing change will not apply to consumer software or consumer cloud services.
For more information, or to discuss further, please contact your account manager.
