If your systems hold data about any EU citizen, there needs to be a valid legal basis for processing personally identifiable informaion. Systems have to protect the rights of data subjects, Privacy notices must be adequate. Security of data and backups needs to be clearly documented and privacy and data protection should be by design. To my mind this rules out a lot of current cloud solution providers. It rules out backups being convenently dumped in cloud storage (unless encrypted). It rules out using dropbox or google cloud storage or AWS or icloud to store personally identifiable information. It is important therefore to act on GDPR now. Even if one EU citizen uses your product or service the product or service must comply with GDPR.

macOS Sierra with macOS Server deployment

What we have are a very particular set of macOS and Unix skills, skills we have acquired over a very long career. Skills that mean we can customise macOS Server as required to host secure websites, email, and continuous integration and virtual servers without breaking the simplicity of the system. One small business client has been running macOS Server for years inside their HQ in order to ensure the security of the data they work with. It is so reliable that they don’t need their own IT department. It is backed up automatically using Time Machine. Because it is based on macOS it is kept up to date with security issues and best practice.
