Free Quick Scan in preparation for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

There are less than 85 days before the GDPR comes into effect on May 25th 2018 in all of the European Union and European Economic Area. Through the GDPR, Data Protection Authorities can impose severe penalties on organizations that suffer a data breach resulting in the unauthorized access of personal data.

  As a follow up to our recent “GDPR: What? Why? and How?” session at the Swedish Chamber and Young Professionals Entrepreneurs Café in February, we’re continuing to help organizations prepare for the GDPR. We are offering a free ‘Quick Scan’ of your internet-facing systems – often the easiest way into your IT environment for hackers. This Quick Scan is a non-intrusive security analysis of your website or application performed remotely by one of our security specialists. This implies a basic black-box penetration test without causing damage or heavy load to the target. Subsequently, a short report will reveal any vulnerabilities found with advice on how to resolve the vulnerability in anticipation of compliance with the GDPR. Simply register by sending us your full name, telephone number and the URL of your organization’s website to and our team will contact you.   Happy GDPR from the team at Base!   Base Cyber Security T:   +318 5303 1267 Follow us

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce congraulates Mercuri Urval to their 50th Anniversary and welcome you to read Mr. Hagafors letter to Mercuri Urval Clients and Candidates on this occation below.

  Dear Clients and Candidates Fifty years have passed since Mercuri Urval was founded. Today we stand strong as a leading global Executive Search, Professional Recruitment and Talent Advisory firm, with 70 teams spanning the world to ensure that our company, employees and clients prosper in the future. And as the ownership of Mercuri Urval is transferred to an independent foundation, we know that Mercuri Urval will remain a long-standing, strong and independent company, ready to serve you, our clients and candidates, for the next 50 years, wherever in the world you need us. This letter marks our celebration year. In our industry, turning fifty is a tremendous milestone. But instead of looking back at the past we will dedicate the coming year’s celebrations to the future of our company, our clients and our candidates. As part of this year of celebration, we are launching a new initiative ‘The Successful Executive’. In a series of practical articles and interviews, we will share our insights and expertise on how you can achieve the extraordinary. Because extraordinary people have always been – and always will be – the essence of Mercuri Urval. Ever since we were founded, our mission has been to help leaders become more successful and deliver the best possible results for their organisation. In the next fifty years we want to build on our existing strengths. We firmly intend that our ability to advise our clients will remain unrivalled. Continually strengthening Mercuri Urval’s unique competence in finding, selecting and developing the right executives and professionals that fulfil clients’ needs is at the heart of our plans. When we say “Extraordinary Results. It’s all about people.” it is not just a strap line; it’s a deeply held conviction. I feel truly privileged to be a part of Mercuri Urval’s journey. This year our teams will celebrate together Mercuri Urval’s exceptional history, accelerate the development of our company and continue to strive for excellence. I sincerely hope that you will join us in our celebration and that you find our upcoming series of articles focused on how to be an even more successful executive interesting and valuable.
