GDPR Data Protection, Electronic and Privacy Law Consulting for SMEs in Cork, Ireland

Use data ethically with peace of mind.

Ireland is growing and so is your business.  More customers for you means more data to use and analyse or simply to care for and store on behalf of your clients.  A growing business might also mean more e-commerce, marketing campaigns, and cloud storage and operations. Let me simplify GDPR data protection, electronic and privacy law requirements for you and help you to prepare your business for legal compliance in Ireland, the UK, EU and the rest of the Global Village.

Based in Cork, Ireland, I offer Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Law services that include:

  1. GDPR Data Protection Consulting, Electronic Law consulting, Privacy Law consulting and ICT Strategy consulting with a data ethics and cybersecurity focus in short bursts, month-to-month or longer contracts.
  2. SME external audits where I supply you with a compliance benchmark report that includes a risk-ranked gap analysis and prioritised actionable steps in alignment with the Irish Data Protection Commission requirements and ENISA recommendations for smaller businesses.
  3. Training and workshops that can be customised to your needs, presented in person or online to bring you and your staff up to speed with data protection law, electronic law and privacy law requirements.
  4. Support for your data protection officer and compliance team in the form of ad-hoc or retainer-based consulting.
  5. Review of your data protection law policies, procedures, privacy statements, templates and other documents.
  6. Review of your marketing strategies to ensure alignment with electronic privacy law requirements.

Why choose me to be your data protection, electronic and privacy law partner?

My clients find that having these matters dealt with by a specialist not only gives them peace of mind, but saves time and takes a huge burden away from them.  My professional background has roots in South African Constitutional Rights Litigation and Electronic Contract Law. South African data protection and privacy law is primarily governed by the Constitutional right to privacy and the POPI Act which when read together are nearly identical to the GDPR. I am a member of the Association of Data Protection Offices, the Irish Computer Society and the Business Analyst Association of Ireland.  I have worked with businesses ranging from small start-ups to multi-nationals who require compliance and other data related consulting in a local and global context. I understand the SME landscape and especially the fact that you as a business owner do not have time to waste.  Drop me a line today as I would love to be a support to your business.
