GDPR

GDPR has massive 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 that many firms find challenging.

We’ve been working – and continue to work – with many companies who are concerned about how inadvertent data breaches could affect them, and who’ve struggled to implement GDPR.

We provide a range of support services including:

GDPR training

We offer initial and refresher training, for decision-makers and for 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 the 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 over 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 what locations?
  • Where and how is it held?
  • What do you use it for?
  • Where did it come from – and what permissions do you have to use it?
  • How recent is it – and how accurate?

GDPR toolkit

We’ve developed a special GDPR toolkit that firms can tailor to their own processes.

Our GDPR toolkit covers essential items 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

Post-implementation assessment

We carry out post-implementation assessments for firms looking for an independent evaluation of data arrangements they’ve already put in place. We’ll visit you on site to make sure your processes satisfy GDPR requirements. We can also highlight where your arrangements could benefit from strengthening.
