GDPR has huge implications for any business that handles personal data. It impacts everything from strategic decision making and governance through to marketing and customer communications.
Complying with GDPR (implemented in the UK through the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA)) is an ongoing responsibility many firms find challenging.
We’ve been working, and continue to work, with many companies concerned about how an inadvertent data breach could affect them, companies who’ve struggled to implement GDPR across their businesses.
We provide a range of GDPR support services including:
We offer both initial and refresher training for decision-makers and operational staff. We’ll help you understand what GDPR responsibilities look like for your senior staff, and how they should be allocated and managed. We’ll take your operational staff through GDPR’s implications for their day-to-day activities, providing practical role-specific advice and guidance.
Data mapping review
We can help allay any concerns you may have about the robustness of your data mapping processes, providing advice and support around key questions such as:
- What data do you gather, hold, and process?
- How much of it falls into special categories of data (formerly known as sensitive data)?
- Who accesses it, and in which locations?
- Where and how is it held?
- What is it used for?
- Where did it come from, and what permissions do you have to use it?
- How recent is it, and how accurate?
We’ve developed a GDPR toolkit which can be tailored to reflect your firm’s processes.
Our GDPR toolkit covers essentials like:
- DPA policy and supporting processes and registers for:
– Right of access
– Right to rectification
– Right to erasure
– Right to restriction of processing
– Right to object
- Client privacy notice
- Template marketing consent
- Template just in time notice.
If you’re looking for an independent evaluation of data arrangements you’ve already put in place, we can carry out a thorough post-implementation assessment. We’ll visit you on-site to verify that your processes satisfy GDPR requirements. In the process, we can highlight any areas where your arrangements could benefit from strengthening.
