Data protection is a key component for all businesses, no matter their size, and ensuring your business complies with the many laws and regulations is vital.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications (PECR) impose the greatest changes in data protection law for 20 years. We can help ensure sure your charity continues to comply, as well as providing expert advice on data protection, freedom of information, confidentiality, and privacy.
Helping businesses comply with data protection requirements
There are likely to be key areas which if tackled first will greatly reduce the risk. Our approach is based on assessing the greatest risks and targeting those by providing you with the documentation required to demonstrate compliance.
We defend organisations facing claims from individuals and investigations by the Information Commissioner’s Office. As a result, we understand how to deal with the contentious aspects of data protection.
