Data Protection, Information & Cyber Security
The biggest shake-up in data protection & privacy law for over 20 years...
  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new law that came into effect on May 25th 2018.
  • It replaced the UK Data Protection Act and impacts all businesses in relation to the personal data of staff, customers and suppliers.
  • Compliance is not a choice, and fines can extend up to 20 Million Euro.

On-site GDPR Compliance Assessment
Introduction

Since our very first project over two decades ago now (a membership management system for a bingo and social club) we have always seen data protection and information security as key core requirements. We believe that robust privacy and security measures are vital to the success and longevity of any software, system or solution.

Over the years we found an increasing number of our customers also asking for advice and support with their company's overall privacy and security requirements / obligations, not just that of their IT or software.

So very early on we decided to branch this out as a second offering which could be utilised alongside or separate from our bespoke IT solutions.

Whether it is your requirements and obligations in relation to data protection law, cyber security best practices, or staff awareness and training, we have a range of products and services that can help.

On-Site GDPR Compliance Assessment Let us help get you 80% of the way

The GDPR applies to any personal information and data you collect, use and store for UK and EU citizens, including not only that of customers, but also employees and suppliers. Lots of business activity will fall under the scope of the GDPR including CRM's, marketing / accounts / back office systems, marketing and sales communications, contact lists / databases, customer and supplier contracts, website forms / newsletter signups, even users just browsing your website will likely be included due to IP addresses now being deemed personal data.

The introduction of any law or regulation can often be a daunting task and as such often gets pushed down the to-do list. But it's vital you don't let this happen, especially now that your users, customers, clients and suppliers have the legal right to claim compensation for damages caused by infringing their "rights".

Our GDPR Compliance Assessment sits in-between the free online "checklists" (which don't really give you any tangible advice) and the "full-fat" consultancy services (which are very expensive - often costing £1000's / day - and are overkill for most businesses). It is an on-site, "hands-on" product tailored to your specific business and processes.

See What's Included
What's Included in 4 easy steps
  • On-site Session

    We come to your premises at a time to suit you.

    First, we present an "introduction to the GDPR" providing you with a high-level overview of what the GDPR is all about, how it differs from the current "Data Protection Act" it's replacing, and what it means for businesses. This can be valuable for any number of staff to sit in on to introduce them to the GDPR, increase their overall understanding, and improve awareness of their responsibilities when it comes to day-to-day activities.

    This is also a great time for you to ask any questions related to your specific business activities or ask us to elaborate on any particulate point (or requirement) of the GDPR for clarification. We don't run this presentation like a formal training session but more like a structured collaboration. We are not "on the clock" so there are no time limits meaning this part of the service essentially becomes a kind of free high-level consultancy session as well as a presentation.

    Second, we have a question and answer session which covers all aspects of the GDPR and its requirements. It includes most areas of general business activity and allows us to gauge your current level of compliance in all areas of the GDPR. The more information you can provide us here, the more accurate and detailed your assessment report will be - so having managers / heads of departments / key staff on hand to answer any relevant questions will help.

    This on-site session normally takes about half a day and if your time allows we are happy to stay a little longer to answer any further specific questions you may have.

    1
  • Assessment Report

    After our on-site session we come back to base and asses the information we gathered. This is where we do all the heavy lifting and produce your GDPR Compliance Assessment Report.

    The report contains a summary of your overall GDPR compliance in graphical form, and details of how well you fair in key "real-world" categories such as board & planning, employees & staff, policy & procedure, data processing, data sharing & transfer and cyber security.

    Each category is fully explained, and includes a "Specific Changes" section detailing key changes you should make to improve your compliance in that area. The report also includes any high-level "quick win" changes you can make straightaway to boost your compliance, and any high risk areas that need immediate attention.

    Finally, the report contains lots of useful reference material including facts and information about the GDPR and a "jargon buster" detailing key GDPR terminology.

    It is an extensive report that can be utilised by departments and key staff, and can be used indefinitely as a clear, concise reference document for general GDPR information.

    2
  • Template Documentation

    Having documented procedures for your staff to follow and well-structured policy to notify customers and suppliers, forms the foundation of any GDPR compliance project. So, alongside the GDPR Compliance Assessment Report we also provide you with key template documentation vital to demonstrating your compliance with the GDPR (avoiding the costly exercise of starting these from scratch yourself).

    You would normally have to pay for these separately but we include them for free as part of our assessment. Our extensive template document pack includes:

    • Data Protection Policy & Procedures
    • Information Security Policy
    • Data Retention & Erasure Policy
    • Data Breach Policy & Procedures
    • Subject Access Request Procedures
    • Privacy Notice Template
    • GDPR Compliance Statement Template
    • Notification Letter Template for Existing Processors
    • Controller Processor Agreement Template

    These documents can either be customised directly to use in your business, or they can be used to cross-reference your current documentation to ensure it covers all areas under the new GDPR requirements.

    3
  • Follow Up

    The GDPR Compliance Assessment is perfect as either an introduction / kick-start to GDPR compliance or as a professional opinion to assess your ongoing compliance efforts, and make sure nothing has been overlooked.

    So, to ensure it has achieved one of the above objectives, soon after receiving your report and template documentation we like to arrange a follow up phone call to discuss them. This is the perfect opportunity for us to answer any questions you may have for example, further clarification on any of the sections / categories, or any of our recommendations.

    4
...and that's it, you're now well on your way to being GDPR compliant.

It is also worth mentioning that this report will actually form part of your required GDPR compliance documentation by demonstrating and proving your overall "awareness" of the GDPR, and acknowledgement of the implied GDPR "accountability" principle.
