Wizuda Commercial Director Mike Ross with StubbsGazette Managing Director James Treacy

Wizuda Commercial Director Mike Ross with StubbsGazette Managing Director James TreacyWe are delighted to announce the addition of StubbsGazette to our customer portfolio, providing them with our Compliant File Share (CFS) solution to enable highly sensitive, personally identifiable financial data to be shared compliantly in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation. The CFS solution will make up part of StubbsGazette’s existing ID Verification, Anti-Fraud, Credit Checking, and Debt Collection product suite.

StubbsGazette has been a market leader in business information, credit referencing, compliance, debt recovery and associated software solutions in Ireland since 2008. By implementing our innovative CFS solution, clients can be entirely confident in the company’s data protection credentials which is essential to the maintenance of the organisation’s respected commercial reputation and success.

The fast approaching GDPR strongly encourages the use of practices such as conducting impact assessments, implementing data retention policies, data minimisation and using anonymisation and pseudonymisation to protect the anonymity of the data subjects. Our CFS solution includes such features amongst its compliance suite helping to simplify the path to GDPR compliance in the data transfer space.

One of the key aspects to implementing GDPR compliant file sharing policies according to James Treacy, Managing Director, StubbsGazette was to avoid any negative impact on productivity: “Wizuda seamlessly integrates with our existing technologies and has empowered compliant file sharing behaviour without compromising the efficiency of our day to day business operations or those of our clients. We see the roll out of Wizuda as a significant part of our overall GDPR compliance programme. Wizuda helped advise us on the key parameters and policies needed to protect key data under GDPR and how to map out an audit trail to ensure compliance.” Speaking about the partnership, Mike Ross, Commercial Director, Wizuda, said: “StubbsGazette are taking their obligations as a data processor and data controller seriously and the implementation of our strong, easy to use solution reinforces to both their customers and employees, the priority they place on data protection. Email attachments are inherently insecure and replacing this method of file sharing with Wizuda’s Compliant File Share software is an important step in being able to demonstrate GDPR compliant processes are in place.”

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.
