WHAT WE DO
Since 2011, our expert consultants have been helping organisations across the UK to do the right thing when it comes to data protection – whether that’s achieving compliance with the law or managing any data breach rapidly and effectively.
WHO IS IT FOR?
We know that GDPR and data protection are complex fields. But by calling us in, you can save yourselves a great deal of time, confusion and money. We can help you minimise your risks and even benefit from remaining fully compliant. Just give us a call and we can help you stay on the right side of the law!
WHAT’S THE BENEFIT
We’ll be happy to provide the complete service or you can choose from a menu of services including data protection advice, audits, policies, training and other support. Our clients include anyone from small businesses to charities, trades unions, public-sector organisations and large corporates.
It’s a minefield, but we can help
We can help you to pick you way through what can seem like a minefield — in other words, your responsibilities under a range of complex data laws and regulations, including the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.
You might be surprised to hear what some of those responsibilities are, yet the fines for breach can be devastating for your organisation, its reputation, and you personally. Fines can reach £20 million or 4% of your global turnover.
The ICO and the law
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the official arbiter of the rights of individuals regarding their personal information. It upholds information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.
The GDPR and Data Protection Act apply to every business and in fact anyone who processes personal data. If you do, you must comply with:
- EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- Data Protection Act 2018
- Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003
- ePrivacy Regulation
- CCTV code of practice 2008
- The CAP code (and the many regulations surrounding the advertising and marketing of your business)
- Computer Misuse Act 1990
Good business sense
You may feel that compliance with data laws and regulations is a painful burden, but we genuinely believe that good data protection can benefit your organisation, because:
- It can bring significant, tangible benefits which far outweigh the effort and costs involved in complying with the Data Protection Act, GDPR and other laws
- The alternative – ignoring privacy and leaving personal data inadequately protected – leaves you wide open to very serious financial, operational and reputational risks.
Our consultants can help your organisation to minimise its risk and to benefit from compliance. Just give us a call and we’ll tell you how!
