re: What kinds of problems have arisen specifically?

Our databases are protected, but they aren't adequately encrypted. We've been trying to move to encrypted servers for over a year and they've just been saying "We can't afford it". We've even said that moving to AWS would only be slightly more expensive (Only an extra few grand) and everything would be fine.

They said they'll consider it, and as soon as our Auditor started kicking everything into gear for GDPR, they finally realised that we a lot of systems aren't compliant and we can be fined massively. We are taking it incredibly seriously, but we should have dealt with this at least a year ago.

I believe we're still holding onto hope for an extension at this rate.

But if they listened to the developers...
