As you may or may not know, there have been significant changes to the regulations and restrictions on how websites track and handle a visitor's personal data. Recently, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect on May 25th, 2018, has implemented a series of laws that cover this for European based businesses. Because there is the possibility that someone from Europe may visit your site, we must also comply with the GDPR.
To further support you and your bussiness’ preparation towards compliance, we wanted to give you an update regarding the new tools and features we’re building to support the GDPR.

What is the Heartbleed vulnerability?
On April 7th, a significant vulnerability was found in OpenSSL which is a library used to encrypt connections for the majority of websites on the internet. The Heartbleed bug as it's been coined would allow an attacker to read the keys that protect communication of a vulnerable server. This is a significant bug which has had website companies all over globe racing to update their systems.
What has Fitz Designz done about this?
Security always takes top priority for us and a severe vulnerability in a 3rd party library prompts us to drop everything and respond to protect the security of our clients.
To summarise our actions:
The bug was resolved promptly on all Fitz Designz' sites and we don't have any indication that the attack has been used against our systems.
