Everyone might be talking about GDPR, but that doesn’t mean they’re making any sense. We have specialist GDPR practitioners who are here to cut through the jargon and to help you put the law into practice in a way that’s clear, understandable and logical.
Why GDPR Matters
Yes, it’s important to make sure your company is GDPR-compliant if you want to avoid a hefty fine, but it’s also a great opportunity to assess your data processes and build trust in your brand.
Our team will act as your translators and make sure you understand exactly what’s required of your business, what your options are and what they all mean, practically speaking, for your day-to-day operations.
We offer a bespoke service, which involves compiling a report on your business and advising you of all the different options available to you, as well as giving you our advice on the best way forward.
Once we’ve got your instructions, our certified Microsoft engineers will be on the case. They’ll create a streamlined system that’s suited to your business needs and that can make sure you’re not just compliant but also confident and efficient.
We’ll assign your company a dedicated Data Protection Officer who will handle your company’s interactions with regulatory and government bodies such as the ICO. They’ll also be responsible for assessments, team training, reporting and data requests.
