Data Protection & Compliance
Your data is likely to be one of your business’ most valuable assets. How you process this data is important not only to ensure that you maintain the trust of your customers, clients, suppliers and the public, but to reduce the risk of regulatory scrutiny by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and in the worst case, your business’ exposure to large fines.
At ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW, we provide a fixed fee quote up front so you can budget with confidence when we work together on one or more of our three unique offerings:
- Data Protection and Privacy Report: Following a detailed “fact finding” discussion with one of our data protection and privacy experts, we will provide you with a Report with sets out the law, how it applies to your business, where there are gaps in your processes, procedures and documents and what steps you should take to become GDPR compliant.
- Privacy & Data Protection Compliance Pack: Complete drafting and update of all contractual documents and internal and external facing policies required to make your business “GDPR” compliant.
- Pay as you go ‘My DPO’: The Data Protection Officer, or DPO, is your expert data protection and privacy advisor, ready to work with you on everything from assessing compliance to facing the ICO in the event of a data security breach or investigation. Our experts have extensive data protection knowledge as well as being commercially astute. As your business’ DPO, we will give a balanced perspective to help your business navigate through the huge amount of information that continues to be released and thrive in the current regulatory environment. This scheme assigns you one of our data protection and privacy experts as your business’ “DPO” and allows you to seek advice and guidance on legal matters at any time on an ad hoc basis. All work carried out under the scheme is done at a reduced hourly rate.
At ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW, our experts will use their commercial, litigation, employment and regulatory knowledge and experience to provide you with a full service offering in respect of all your data protection and privacy requirements. Whether your business requires assistance with auditing its data flows, drafting contractual documentation or policies, information security, data subject engagement, marketing strategies or responding to regulatory communications and investigations, ACUMEN BUSINESS LAW should be your first port of call. We understand business and will guide you to identify those items relevant to how you operate.
