Start your business right!

Everything you didn’t know you needed to know about starting a business with an online presence. 

Are you about to launch a new business, or recently launched a business?    With many changes in laws concerning privacy and data collection,  whether your are actually selling products online, or you are building an online presence, there are lots of things you need to do which you might not even be aware of.

Fines for non compliance for small business can be substantial – Minimise risk by knowing what action you need to take now.

If you collect data on your site, if you work in financial or health sectors in particular you may need to comply with additional regulation

Even if you have had a website for years you may not be aware of potential exposure to risk.
