Have any of you put measures in place for invoices and pay roll information, sent to you by your clients, to be password protected or encrypted in any way?
I receive all my information this way and I'm worried this will not be secure enough from 25th May.
Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
You can password protect Excel, PDF files before you send to client. If you agree a password between you and the client, then send via email the password protected file, that way if any one intercepts it, they can't open the attachment.
Payslips, well if you use a good Payroll Package, the payslips can be emailed directly from the payroll package to the employee. Better still a lot of the modern payroll packages allow the employee a login, they can then retrieve their payslips from the package directly, hence avoiding email all together.
A lot is made of GDPR (hype for the money makers), but if you use common sense you won't go too far wrong.
