Can you give me a quote for making us GDPR compliant?

All clients are at different stages of their journey. Some have a full suite of effective governance documents, all their training in place and systems that just need a tweak here and there to get them refreshed and revitalised.

Other organisations may have been in business for many years and are growing rapidly – but have never considered data protection beyond a few information security controls.

Wherever you are on your journey, from start-ups to well-established organisations, we can definitely find a suitable package to get you where you want to be. 

How can we work together?

Below are some of our example services and prices. Whatever you need, we will have a package to suit your needs. 

Gap Analysis / Audit

From £900 + VAT

Find the gaps in your privacy policies and procedures.

Get an action plan to become compliant.

Show that you’re proactive and care about data protection.

Each business is different, with varying data processes and numbers of employees, and at different stages of implementation and understanding. Therefore, when carrying out a gap analysis, we’ll look at the scope of what compliance means for your business.
Then we’ll evaluate:

  •  Your key documents.
  •  Staff awareness of data protection policies and procedures.
  • Your current privacy processes.
  • Governance framework and documents.
  • Staff training and awareness.
  • How well you’re able to facilitate the rights of your data subjects.
  • Your 3rd party supplier processes and contracts.
  • Your Privacy Notices 
  • Your website tech and marketing practices.

This can all be done remotely or at your office.

We’ll provide a comprehensive report highlighting any issues, showing you the full picture of where you are at the moment and where you need to be – so you’ll know what you need to do to fill in the gaps!

Data Protection Officer as a Service (DPOaaS)

From £500 + VAT / month

Reduce your costs and increase your compliance by outsourcing your Data Protection Officer.

Some businesses, such as public authorities or those involved in specific processing activities, must appoint a DPO. Even if not required by regulations, hiring a DPO can be good practice if your business handles large amounts of personal data.

Your DPO must be able to carry out their duties completely independently and with no conflicts of interest. They also need to have extensive knowledge of the regulation and all its complexities.

However, it doesn’t always warrant a full-time role, so outsourcing it to us can be a cost-effective option.
You’ll get the benefits and peace of mind of an independent, GDPR expert working for you, with lower costs and less strain on your business.

  • Independent information and advice regarding risk.
  • Assistance with DPIAs and LIAs.
  • Assistance with Rights requests.
  • Liaison with the ICO where needed.
  • Attendance at board/trustee meetings.
  • Compliance monitoring and reporting.
  • Policy adherence checks.
  • Staff training.
  • Breach and incident support and advice.

Had a nasty surprise?

We also support clients in their hour of need. Perhaps you’ve had a letter from the ICO or other regulator, or don’t quite know how to handle the Subject Access Request you’ve just had from an ex-employee.

If this is you, and you need to get solid advice from people who have ‘been there done that’, get in touch and we’ll discuss how we can help.
