Compliance

If you’re still not sure you’re up-to-date and prepared for your responsibilities under the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 and Data Protection Act 2018 we can help you.

We have already helped e-commerce companies, SME’s and startups unpick what the regulations mean specifically for their business and develop and implement successful action plans to help them reach compliance.

We offer support in the following areas:

  • Defining personal and special category data
  • Handeling personal and special category data

If you need or want to elect a Data Protection Officer, but either don’t hold those skills internally or don’t need a permanent staff member, outsourcing the role is a cost effective solution.

We can provide your Leadership Team with the advice and support you need to comply with relevant privacy regulations and legislation; to inform and uphold the rights of data subjects and ensure an appropriate risk-based system of controls over all personal data processed by the business.

This is a wide ranging service that includes:

  • Advising on when and how to carry out automated testing or manual security testing

As experienced information security standards and policy writers we can review your current information security policies, or help you develop new ones. 

We have already developed internal policies for a number of companies to help them underpin how they mange their data protection and information security requirements.
