Expert Report: When is a keyboard not just a keyboard? When it’s CHERRY!

With CHERRY you really can have the pick of the bunch…

“But a keyboard is a keyboard – they’re all the same – and as long as it works, I don’t care!”. 

This is a very common statement to hear from customers, but it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Yes, when a key is pressed, letters come out on the screen, but the way that the keyboard feels and the technology is used makes each product completely different.
With 50 years’ experience in making keyboards, CHERRY does know a thing or two about what makes a good keyboard and which keyboards suit different industries. However, keyboards are also very personal devices and what is good for one user, may not be for another.

Expert Report: How GDPR Affects Your Paper Documents

During May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect throughout the EU and will replace the UK’s current Data Protection Act.

The GDPR will have a major impact on the way data is managed and steps should be taken to prepare immediately. The clock is ticking with only 12 months left to meet the May 2018 deadline.

The consequences of failing to adhere to the GDPR are significant – Data protection regulators will have the powers to impose fines up to €20,000,000 or 4% of the total worldwide annual turnover, so it’s never been more important to put robust standards and procedures in place. According to a UK government 2015 information security breaches survey, “90% of large organisations and 74% of SMEs reported a security breach, leading to an estimated total of £1.4bn in regulatory fines.” This means that if data breaches remain at 2015 levels, the fines paid to the European regulator could see a near 90-fold increase, from £1.4bn in 2015 to £122bn, the PCI SSC calculated, based on the maximum fine of 4% of global turnover. GDPR focus is often placed on cyber security threats, server hacks, database vulnerabilities and data stored on and transmitted between servers and networks. Often though, paper documents, paper records and files are being severely overlooked. These however should be ignored at your peril.
