GDPR Logo

So, you are sitting in your office trying to get caught up on your never-ending pile of work and all of a sudden you get an official looking email from Google letting you know about their new GDPR policies. The first thing you think to yourself is, "What is GDPR and how does it affect me?". Well, that is a mighty good question, one that many American companies are going to be asking of themselves over the next few weeks as we get closer to May 25th, the official deadline for GDPR compliancy. Read on so that we can help you to navigate the murky waters of the GDPR, what it means to you, and who is affected by it.

What is the GDPR?

In an effort to help citizens of the EU, new data privacy and protection regulations are going to be enforced through the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The goal of the GDPR is to strengthen and unify data protection for citizens of the EU, whether they visit a EU based website or a website based abroad.

Hacking up 180% in 2015

Google announced Monday that they saw a “huge number of websites being hacked – a 180% increase compared to the previous year”.

They also saw an increase in sites with lower quality content, also called “thin-content”.

To address these issues Google used search updates to remove a number of hacked spam sites in search results.

Heartbleed bug

We have been fielding a lot of calls today about the Heartbleed bug and wanted to send out as much information that we have at this time so that you can determine if your account may have an issue. 

Most of our clients don't rely on SSL and since this was an SSL vulnerability they will not be affected as far as their website is concerned.

Last weekend we had the opportunity to go to Joomla Day Atlanta.  Held on the Georgia Tech Campus, the one day event had over 150 attendees.  Steve Burge, Director of OS Training, did an outstanding job in coordinating the effort. It was nice to be able to interact with developers who are heavily involved in Joomla.
