How effective are you in handling Personal data breaches ?

Interim Management

“Data is the pollution problem of the information age, and protecting privacy is the environmental challenge”.

Bruce Schneier

GDPR Compliant? Ask yourself this question:

Can your organisation demonstrate that good data protection is a cornerstone of your business policy and practices?

If your answer is not a resounding YES then you are leaving your organisation open to enforcement action that can damage both public reputation and bank balance. But there’s a carrot here as well as a stick: get data protection right, and you can see a real business benefit.”

Privacy has largely been a matter of law and policy. Security has largely been a matter of technology and policy. Now, that’s all changing.

Our team of experienced data protection experts can help your organisation with a variety of best-practice solutions, from evaluating your GDPR compliance position and developing a remediation roadmap through to information security and risk management. Whether you are an SME or a multinational, your obligations to protect personal data privacy and security remain.
