An Essential Guide to Freelancing in the Digital Economy
“As a digital freelancer you are likely to be more susceptible to data and security issues than an employee of a company, so you need to stay ahead of the game”
For digital freelancers across the industry, it’s important to consider the essential steps needed to be successful in a competitive industry. In this article, founder of Taploy Janthana Kaenprakhamroy suggests the six essential steps you should take to ensure digital freelancing triumphs in the modern day, including mastering GDPR, finding the perfect insurance for your needs and improving your networking skills.
When working as a digital freelancer, it is important not to underestimate the importance of obtaining the right insurance for your brand to remain protected at all times.
With Taploy, you can get on-demand insurance cover – whenever you want it – within two minutes, with a full range of commercial insurance products to choose from. The ability to customise insurance to the specific needs of your business subsequently means you only pay insurance when it is required. With that in mind, a large proportion of worry involved in commercial risks is removed.
Taploy provides an essential part of the growth in the sharing economy, with its flexible insurance products and simple customer interface that removes the intimidating complexities of the whole process.
The recent implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – which replaced the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC – means it is increasingly important for digital freelancers to remain stringently compliant.
As a digital freelancer you are likely to be more susceptible to issues than an employee, therefore having the right insurance in place will ensure protection from a lawsuit if a data breach were to occur as a result of work on your personal systems.
There are an array of important steps you can take as a digital freelancer to ensure your safety in this topic, including an in-depth review of your current data-store and data management, a software and device audit, encryption of devices such as phones and laptops- mailing list reviews and updates on your privacy policies.
Now more than ever, it is essential to have the right technology to keep you up-to-date with and ahead of the competition.
