Cyber Security Audits and Certification

The way in which you look after and use corporate information can mean the difference between success and failure for your business. Get it right and you’ll grow your customer-base. Get it wrong and the risks and penalties can stop you in your tracks.

Cyber Essentials Certification shows both the regulator – the ICO and your customers that you take the security of their data seriously.

ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that your business has systems in place to protect corporate information and data, whether this is online or offline. By gaining ISO 27001, customer and stakeholder confidence is increased and your company’s reputation is improved, allowing you to stand out amongst competitors.

GDPR Compliance Audit & Assessment

An assessment and production of a GAP Analysis with a risk evaluation and clear action plan to achieve and ensure ongoing compliance. Writing of Policies and procedures, Data Flow Mapping, Record of Processing Activity (ROPA), and Data Privacy Impact Assessments (DPIA).


Training Courses and Conference Briefings

In-house training for anyone from senior managers to front-line staff.  This can cover anything from the basics of Data Protection for an organisation embarking on a review of its practice, to the practical implementation of policies and procedures at the end of the process.

Data Protection Officer (DPO) Support Service

The GDPR specifies that the following types of organisation must appoint a DPO:

Public authorities, except for courts acting in their judicial capacity;

Organisations whose core operations require regular and systematic monitoring of individuals on a large scale; and

Organisations whose core activities consist of processing special categories of persona data (special categories include data revealing ethnic origin, political opinions or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, data concerning health, or data concerning an individual’s sex life or orientation).

Most of the time, Data Protection is straightforward, and largely a matter of common sense.  Occasionally, however, you hit a problem.  You could research the answer yourself, but often you need to move quickly, with the reassurance that you haven’t missed anything.  That’s where my support service comes in.
