In order to keep your data safe we recommend that:

1.A commercial SSL certificate is installed to provide HTTPS encryption.
If a commercial SSL certificate is not installed, then all communications with the website could easily be intercepted, including the login usernames and passwords.
2.The uploaded documents are stored on an encrypted drive.
Documents and thumbnails need to be stored encrypted. They can be configured to be on any drive including the default C: drive, but the designated drive should be encrypted to meet EU GDPR regulations, for example using BitLocker encryption.
3.The Skyline databases is moved to your own SQL server.
This should be a dedicated server with fail-over protection and backup strategies in place. The databases can be left on the Skyline server but they should be backed up by the customer.
4.The Skyline databases are accessed using an account that you have full control over.
You can choose to keep the existing Database Authentication (but change the default password at least) or switch to Windows authentication using a domain account that you control.
