The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will require organisations to refocus their efforts around the way they process both employee and customer personal data. The EU legislation, which was adopted on April 14th, 2016, provides organisations with a 2-year grace period before it comes enforceable from 25th May 2018.
How can we help?Organisations are at different stages in their data protection 'readiness' journey. Some have yet to consider their approach or assess their personal data landscape, while others have already defined their programme or framework and have begun implementation.
Comms-care has partnered with Xcina Consulting, specialists in the provision of high quality risk, technology, assurance and advisory services, to offer a comprehensive GDPR approach for assisting organisations in adopting a GDPR defensible position.
Xcina Consulting can support organisations at every stage of their journey, including:
- Gap analysis
- Data mapping exercise
- GDPR programme review/audit
- Implementing a robust framework
- Leading a programme of remediation efforts
- Conduct training & awareness to staff at all levels
All such services can be provided under the banner of a Virtual Data Protection Officer (vDPO).
Additionally, for complex engagements and to provide an organisation with greater peace of mind and value add, a Barrister (Queen's Counsel) may provide advisory and oversight.
