The Problem

You need to assess whether your business is compliant with its Data Protection obligations.

Related challenges include:

  • you are already incredibly busy with your normal duties and don’t have time to conduct a compliance audit
  • external legal counsel are too expensive to be of viable assistance
  • you are not a data protection expert
  • you are not sure exactly what you should be looking to assess
  • your team has very little spare capacity to take on a new initiative
  • GDPR has resulted in greater compliance obligations on companies worldwide
  • the board are very anxious that this gets done quickly and comprehensively

If only there was a way to get this done well, quickly and cost effectively, and without you having to sacrifice all of your upcoming evenings and weekends…
