Mike Ross rolls out Wizuda to HSSCU as Data Protection is ranked amongst their top business priorities.

Wizuda's Compliant Data Transfer rolls out to the HSSCU


Wizuda are delighted to announce that the Health Services Staffs Credit Union (HSSCU) have rolled out Wizuda’s Compliant File Share (CFS) solution across their organisation.

An article by the Irish Tech News said: “Wizuda’s CFS solution gives the HSSCU maximum assurance that all its file transfers are being handled compliantly, both internally for employees and externally for clients. Anonymising and pseudonymising personal identifiers are now essential to protect the anonymity of the data subjects.”

Wizuda Commercial Director Mike Ross (pictured left with HSSCU General Manager Catherine Byrne) spoke on how businesses are vulnerable to cyber-attacks and data breaches due to the security of email: “The implementation of our CFS solution, is a significant step for the HSSCU in its journey to becoming data compliant. It demonstrates an understanding on their part of the seriousness of GDPR and data compliance, and our strong, easy to use solutions mean they are in safe hands. As many companies know, email is inherently insecure by nature, leaving businesses more vulnerable to a cyber-attack or a data breach. This partnership means that, as well as secure data transfer, we will be providing a vital reporting layer in line with the overall GDPR culture of accountability, enabling full demonstration of compliant processes.”

Data protection is at the top of the list in terms of priorities for businesses, with the deadline of GDPR on May 25th 2018 rapidly approaching, and fines of €20 million or 4% of global turnover looming.

the challenge - wizuda case studies

The board of a multinational medical device organisation required a secure, cloud-based solution which facilitated virtual board member collaboration on key documents in preparation for monthly board meetings.

The documentation was regularly of a highly commercially sensitive nature, largely relating to ongoing clinical trials, and as such demanded a secure and encrypted platform which could be implemented without the engagement of internal IT resources.

Key challenges that need to be  considered:

  • Geographically dispersed stakeholders
  • Highly commercially sensitive documentation
  • No internal IT involvement
  • Multiple stakeholders required to collaborate on
    single documents

Wizuda MFT gave them a centralised view of all their file transfer activities and a network overview of the data flows. IT now had instantly available reporting and could provide geographic maps and network overviews to senior management of all file transfer activities in the organisation. These could also be categorised in ways that made sense for the business from a priorities perspective. Wizuda’s unique ‘Health Check’ dashboard with automated monitoring and alerts, allowed them to manage all transfer operations proactively and ensured they were always on top of any issues.

From a GDPR compliance perspective, transfers could be linked to Data Protection Impact Assessments were required and data could be anonymised as part of the transfer process. Wizuda MFT enabled them to apply the latest security protocols for file transfers and encrypt data at rest and in transit. Passing cyber-security and GDPR compliance audits became a lot easier.
