GDPR in a Box™ – GDPR consultancy services

GDPR in a Box™ is a cost-effective, simple way for an organisation to comply and maintain compliance with the General Data Protection Regulations. Our structured approach catalogues your data sets and identifies how the GDPR applies. One of our experienced GDPR consultants will analyse the measures that your organisation currently has in place and identify any gaps or potential risks. Backed by our in-house legal team, our GDPR consultants will design and implement the bespoke, necessary controls to ensure that you achieve and maintain GDPR compliance.

Our GDPR consultant services

GDPR audit

Our experienced, professional GDPR consultants will review and assess the data protection controls and measures your organisation already has in place. We assess each stage of your organisation’s data handling, including how data is collected, stored and process. We then review how measures meet the six principles of data protection and the operational effectiveness of data roles, including data processors and data controllers.

Our GDPR audit services support our wider GDPR gap analysis support for organisations developing or updating GDPR compliance processes.

GDPR Compliance Fix

Our GDPR in a Box™ packages efficiently solve GDPR issues and ensure your organisation meets GDPR compliance, avoiding the risk of data breaches, fines and reputational damage.

Full GDPR Compliance Fix

Our Full Compliance Fix package uses GDPR in a Box™ framework and template materials. An Ascentor consultant will carry out the complete GDPR compliance project with assistance from you. Our legal team then reviews all relevant data legal notices and documents to ensure suitability and compliance.

This package is suited to organisations with limited internal GDPR resources or who want to quickly and effectively achieve compliance.

Assisted GDPR Compliance Fix

Our Assisted Compliance Fix package provides your organisation with the GDPR in a Box™ framework and template materials. Through remote training and advice, our consultants can support the in-house implementation of compliance processes. Our legal team can optionally support with a GDPR document review, including legal notices.

This package is suited to organisations with in-house resources or with a limited budget.

GDPR in a Box™ Compliance Fix packages have a fixed cost for simple, assured compliance.

GDPR Gap Analysis

Our GDPR Gap Analysis service is designed for organisations that need a rigorous and comprehensive foundation for an in-house GDPR compliance project. Suitable for organisations nearing the end of an in-house GDPR and data protection project, it fills the need for a GDPR consultant to review compliance and highlight any gaps in data protection.

Using the GDPR in a Box™ approach and backed by our legal team, we review existing personal data protection arrangements and determine exactly what you need to do to comply.

Included in our GDPR Gap Analysis process is:

  • Prepare – we catalogue the different data sets that you hold and the various locations and methods used to access that data.
  • Identify – we use our proprietary Activ Comply legal compliance software to determine what is required of your organisation’s data sets in order to be GDPR compliant.
  • Analyse – we compare the requirements of the GDPR to your organisation’s pre-existing data set controls to identify any gaps.

We provide a comprehensive GDPR compliance report that sets out your current compliance level, highlights any gaps, and provides an action plan to address GDPR compliance issues.

The GDPR in a Box™ Gap Analysis service is provided at a fixed cost with no hidden extras.

Ongoing GDPR Compliance

To ensure continued GDPR compliance, data processing operations require regular auditing.

Our GDPR consultants offer a bespoke annual GDPR health check, keeping data protection processes and controls effective and potential gaps and risks are identified and mitigated with the appropriate controls.

For larger organisations that undertake significant data collection, processing and storage activities, a Data Protection Officer will need to be appointed. Our GDPR consultants can save your organisation time and money by supporting it as a fully externalised Data Protection Officer. Our GDPR experts will record data processing activities, undertake formal data security audits, and investigate and mitigate data protection breaches.

Our ongoing GDPR Compliance service is a bespoke offering, tailored to your organisation’s needs. We ensure your business remains compliant with data regulations, from annual GDPR health checks to full outsourced Data Protection Officer services.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does GDPR stand for?

GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is a set of regulations introduced as part of the Data Protection Act 2018. It mandates that organizations must have secure data processing systems and consider the reasons and methods of their data collection and usage. Additionally, it grants individuals the right to access, modify, and delete the personal data held about them.

What is GDPR?

GDPR is the legal and regulatory framework that governs how organizations collect, process, store, and utilize personal data. The regulations apply to any information that can be used to identify an individual, referred to as the ‘data subject.’ It imposes strict requirements on the use of this personal data, including the need for explicit consent from the individual and the individual’s rights to access, modify, and delete their personal information.

GDPR covers all forms of personal data, including paper-based documents like employee records and customer information, as well as digital data such as email marketing data and CCTV footage. Businesses that fail to comply with GDPR regulations face significant penalties.

Who does GDPR apply to?

GDPR applies to all organizations, regardless of whether they are business or non-household entities, that collect and process personal data for any reason. Personal data is information that enables the identification of individuals, including email addresses, phone numbers, date of birth or social media profiles, for customers, employees, and suppliers.

Why is GDPR important?

The Data Protection Act 2018 modernized data protection laws, changing how organizations handle personal data. It aims to ensure that individuals’ data is treated responsibly and fairly, and that organizations have a legitimate reason for collecting, processing, and storing it. The act requires individuals to provide consent for the use of their personal information and allows them to request that their data not be used.

What is a GDPR breach?

A GDPR breach occurs when personal data is used outside of the General Data Protection Regulations. This can include data theft, such as hackers stealing personal information from a website to organisational failures such as insufficiently secure data storage.

Any data breaches must legally be reported to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) by the organisation. The breach should be investigated, inspire immediate action, and affected individuals notified. If a data breach was to occur, organisations can face significant fines.
