Managing DPA / GDPR compliance is hard. Have you got the time or the knowledge?

Managing your own Data Protection compliance requires a great deal of specialised knowledge and a substantial amount of time. Reading all the relevant information on the Information Commissioner’s Office website is almost a full time job in itself.  (And you have your own ‘day job’ of course!)

We can help you with this, whether it is for a one-off project or on an ongoing basis.  For small and medium sized businesses this is likely to be a much more cost-effective approach than sourcing a full-time employee. Some of our clients only require a single consultation in order to check their plans for compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the DPA. Other clients need, more, regular guidance on their progress toward their compliance.

It is essential to monitor changes to legislation and the impact these have on business procedures. We always advise clients to go beyond compliance to best practice; invariably best practice becomes legal compliance. Companies are still getting it wrong!

How we help you with Data Protection compliance …

Data Protection Policy / Privacy Notices

We can help you create a Data Protection Policy or a Privacy Notice that is adapted to your needs and the way you do things.  This will explain how you comply with Data Protection legislation and best practice.  It will be invaluable to staff and can be used to reassure clients.  This should be written by you – with guidance from us – this way you take ownership of it, it will fit in with your way of working and it will not be an expensive outlay for you or your business. We can also help you with Data Protection Training.
