Data protection regulations

Ensuring compliance with data protection laws including the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) is incredibly important for any sports organization or NGB. Should the worst happen, and your organization experiences a data breach or security incident, the consequences can be significant if you don’t have a plan in place or do not comply with regulations.

This includes data protection regulations such as GPDR.

Browser Security

When using sport management software like the Sport:80 Platform, accessing the solution from a supported and up to date web browser is an important part of ensuring high levels of security. Unsupported or outdated web browsers provide greater potential risks to security as they are much more easily compromised. Solutions like the Sport:80 Platform will prompt users if they are using an outdated or unsupported web browser and prevent them from accessing the software until they download an up-to-date version.

You can benefit from high standards of data protection, such as password creation standards

If password security is a worry – a good sports management software company will enable you to enforce strict password creation standards to promote strong security standards. Solutions such as the Sport:80 Platform also ask members for regular password resets.

Additionally, features such as two-factor authentication allow your members to utilize two-factor authentication for additional security when signing into the platform, further strengthening security.

Securely share data throughout your network

Software such as the Sport:80 Platform allows you to securely share data throughout your network. For example, you can connect the Sport:80 Platform with your website, apps, and other web services. You can also share real-time information from the Platform with your website for event calendars, club listings, coach finders & a variety of others.

Sports management software also allows you to improve your members’ online experience and give them the ability to use the same login details to access your web services and apps.
