Being investigated by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is not something any business would want to experience.
As if a data breach weren’t already stressful enough, it means having to respond to a torrent of questions from the regulator. A tough call for anyone.
Over the years, we’ve supported many clients through ICO investigations. Helping you respond to those difficult questions, and talking to the ICO’s enforcement officers on your behalf, means we can take a burden off your shoulders and could also secure a more positive outcome for you.
Remember, there are strict rules over how much time you have in which to investigate any potential breach, and over whether or not to report any breach you do identify.
So don’t fall foul of the ICO: fines can be significant, and the reputational damage (not least through press reporting and even appearing on the ICO website) can be very painful. Instead, call in the experts – we know what to do, when and how.
