HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
The first step is to conduct a GDPR audit, or GAP analysis - if you have not commissioned one previously.
The purpose of this is to understand the culture of data privacy within your organisation and how personal data flows around it – how it comes in, how and where it moves internally and how and why it leaves the organisation – when sent to your customers, clients, or suppliers.
During our time on site, we will identify how compliant the organisation is in relation to the previous Data Protection Act 1998 and what changes you must implement to meet the requirements of the GDPR.
Although the principles of the GDPR are very similar to the previous Data Protection Act 1998, the legislation now means companies must demonstrate their compliance upon demand from clients, customers and the Supervisory Authorities (Information Commissioners’ Office).
While there are other features, it is this demonstrable element of compliance that is the biggest task as it requires the creation of policies and procedures that accurately reflect the processes you have in-house.
The report we deliver off the back of the audit will highlight all areas of concern – in traffic light format to ensure the priority areas are identified and addressed swiftly.
Our professional team provide on-going support at a level to suit your budget to ensure all areas of concern are rectified with maximum efficiency – but without cutting corners. We pride ourselves on the quality of our work – and implementing a programme of data privacy is not a tick-box exercise. It must be embraced from the Board Room and filtered down.
