We are your ‘Ten Steps to Privacy and GDPR Compliance’.

Do you need to rapidly achieve demonstrable data protection compliance?  We are GDPR compliance subject-matter experts for Irish and UK based businesses.  We help you to meet your compliance obligations through active engagement, robust documentation, and privacy by design practices.

Our Services

We help you operationalise privacy from a management consultancy perspective using adapted versions of the NIST Privacy and Cybersecurity frameworks to guide your progress.  We identify and solve your complex business, organisational and operational problems and define and improve processes in the privacy, data protection, and cyber security context.  Every client has a unique starting point and is at a different stage of maturity.  We have examples below of the different types of services we include as part of your consulting package.

Is it time for an expert GDPR review of your business?

You need a GDPR Snapshot done!

  • In-Meeting Advice
  • Gap Analysis
  • Key Findings
  • Risk Ratings
  • Prioritised Action Plan
  • Presentation Delivery of Report

If you are unsure of your position, we start with a GDPR Snapshot to understand your data protection and cyber security gaps, a ‘GDPR gap analysis’ if you will.  This service helps to show you the way forward to attain compliance.

With your key stakeholders, we review your data landscape at a high level.  We prepare a detailed report with risk ratings of key findings presented to you with guidance on remediating high-risk issues.

Our GDPR Snapshot service is usually delivered over a billed time of 3 to 5 days, over an actual time of three to five weeks.  Our current daily rate, dependent on complexity and travel, ranges from €950 to €1,250 (travel dependent) per day, plus VAT.

Our Clients

We work with businesses in Ireland and Europe that operate in highly regulated spaces and that need to pay particular attention to data protection, privacy, and cyber security.  We also work with businesses in Ireland that typically have 100 to 250+ employees that need to operationalise privacy in demonstrable ways.  We spend typically one to three years with each client as they grow in maturity.  Our aim for our clients is to contextualise compliance requirements, embed good practice, and hand over to internal teams to continue operations as we exit.

Our Process

Get in touch via email and we will book you in for an introductory, no obligations, free call to discuss your requirements.  If we both feel we are a good fit, we will help you to identify your privacy, data protection, or cyber security priority.  We will prepare a detailed brief and quote for the services required, alongside approximated dates for identified milestones alongside our usual terms and conditions.  We include generalised examples of similar projects for you as a reference.
