London – 23 May, 2017. Arkivum Ltd., a leading provider of long-term data safeguarding and data usability solutions, has announced its service has gone live on the UK public sector procurement framework G-Cloud 9. The new version of G-Cloud, the UK Government-sponsored Digital Marketplace, is intended to improve transparency and make it easier for public sector organisations to procure a wide variety of services.
Daniel Hickmore, Arkivum’s Vice President, Health, Life Sciences and Pharma, said: “The availability of the Arkivum 6 service on G-Cloud enables easy access to our modular solutions for long-term data safeguarding. We want to give UK public sector organisations a flexible alternative to the DIY approach, for those seeking to build in privacy by design and to provide 100% guaranteed data integrity – while avoiding costly dependencies on major vendors.”
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becoming EU law in May 2018, the advent of stricter regulations around personal data is imminent. Organisations of all sizes will now be accountable for the personal data they hold, process, or entrust to third parties. Public sector procurement frameworks like G-Cloud will help UK firms to meet GDPR and other new regulatory requirements across industries. From Financial Services, Healthcare, Pharma and Life Sciences, to diverse institutions such as libraries and museums, compliance with regulatory requirements and internal best practices concerning archived data has become a major technical challenge.
Designed with today’s compliance and data governance standards in mind, Arkivum 6 delivers six key elements for the proper long-term management of your critical data:
