Client Background:
Taylor Lewis is one of the most respected and reliable Quantity Surveying and Construction Consultancy firms in the South West. They have earned their reputation with both private and public sector clients, through professionalism, commitment and flexibility.

With extensive experience in a wide range of construction projects, Taylor Lewis excels at giving its clients best value. The company is also proud that it continues to serve many of its original local clients, as it has done for 25 years.

With the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), Taylor Lewis were looking for a way to ensure all their data was encrypted and stored securely. The business has worked closely with IT Champion since 2016 and they approached us to review their current data security strategy and recommend improvements that would assist the business with GDPR compliance.

An IT Champion engineer worked with key stakeholders at Taylor Lewis to investigate how the business currently stored their data. Following the investigation, IT Champion recommended that Taylor Lewis upgrade the operating systems of their PC’s from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and to utilise the built-in encryption tool BitLocker.

IT Champion arranged a suitable date to deploy the upgrades with Taylor Lewis, as the project would create disruption to the business. Two engineers attended site for a full day to upgrade and encrypt all devices. Taylor Lewis users now need to enter a BitLocker pin on their workstations before the operating system boots up, safeguarding their data and complying with GDPR guidelines.

“IT Champion are an excellent organisation and have supported us well for a number of years. They are proactive, efficient and take the time to fully understand the needs of our business. Their recommendations on Cyber security have led to a number of well-considered improvements that protect our systems while avoiding any disruption to day to day working.”
