It should be remembered that one of the biggest risks to an organisation of a data breach is an employee accidentally, or maliciously, sending the personal data outside the organisation. This could be an email to the wrong person or by using an external memory device, e.g. USB stick, which then gets lost or stolen.
The first step to organisational security is achieved by training your staff. The GDPR mandates that all employees are given general awareness training every year and those that handle personal data on a regular basis, e.g. HR, Payroll, Sales, Marketing and Customer Service personnel, should have more in depth training bi-annually.
