In the popular opinion on Christian holidays, Christmas may take the entire spotlight with its joyful, pervasive celebrations commencing months before. But make no mistake: for millions of Poles, Easter is the most momentous time of a year. And while non-religious people may only notice it is upon them when seeing seasonal chocolates in their local stores, chances are their Polish neighbours have already started the preparations to what will become an uncanny, three-day springtime feast.

They are cunning, ruthless and have only one goal, to gain access to sensitive data on the corporate network. Today it’s not only personal data but also image and video files (for example, industrial surveillance cameras footage) that hackers are looking for. Will the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation convince businesses to increase spending on network data protection? What should they keep in mind and pay attention to?
