Case Study: Kettering Borough Council
Ensuring GDPR compliance with datAshur flash drives from iStorage
To effectively provide services to local businesses and residents, Kettering Borough Council need to collect sensitive and confidential personal data. Collecting such data can place local authorities in a vulnerable position, as GDPR regulations must be met to ensure personal data is securely stored and protected in case of a cyber-attack or employee error resulting in data loss.
Protecting sensitive data
Kettering Borough Council operate within the County of Northamptonshire region and are dedicated in offering residential support for over 100,000 constituents. The services that Kettering Borough Council offer residents include leisure services, business rates, housing, and planning.
Kettering Borough Council turned to iStorage to find an ideal solution which would enable the council to effectively store their constituents’ personal data securely, enabling them to fulfil their promise to protect the needs of their constituents as well as meeting vital GDPR regulation laws.
