Data Protection and the treatment of Personal Data is core to many business operations. 

 

The EU's General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) changed the compliance landscape significantly and Brexit will not make anyone's life easier. Dealing with data protection efficiently requires more than an understanding of the law-it requires an interest in the use of personal data in business.

I have over 14 years' experience dealing with data protection issues, in the context of complex transactions as well as in relation to stand-alone compliance issues.  I can help you with the following:

  • GDPR Compliance:

    • I have run several compliance projects for businesses, starting with data audits and ending with drafting policy documents and acting as a virtual DPO.

    • I will engage with your business to understand the personal data flow and manage the compliance project with the aim of empowering your business.

    • I can help with all ancillary collateral and processes (e.g. impact assessments, subject access requests, deletion requests, international data transfers and the implications of Brexit).

    • I have deep experience in data protection compliance for SaaS software businesses and will help you navigate through multiple contract layers, processing activities, support resolution and marketing queries.

    • If compliance is a never-ending journey, my aim is to ensure that you know which way to go...

  • Data Processing Agreements

    • Have you been sent one and don't know whether it is appropriate for your business and processes? 

    • How do you ensure that your suppliers sign up to data protection terms without a long-winded negotiation?

  • Standard Contractual Clauses

    • Do you need them or not? If so, how do you put them in place?   

  • I want to do "x" with personal data...can I do that? ​

    • I will help you understand the scope of your rights in relation to personal data and how you can extend that scope legitimately. ​
