Why is Data protection so important?

We quickly realised that since the inception of GDPR back in 2018, the data protection landscape would change quite rapidly, hence creating our own in-house Data Protection team to assist local businesses with such vital issues.

We fully appreciate and understand how daunting a task it can be to remain compliant. Let’s face it, it’s a crucial part of your business and one wrong move could result in untold misadventures within your business.

Whilst you may not have the need for a full-time DPO (Data Protection Officer), it is a role which requires experience and specialist data protection expertise. You can use our services as you see fit, to set you on the right path, or to be there for the full journey. It’s up to you.
