For businesses large and small, the need to address data protection and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) vulnerabilities have never been more pressing. From May 2018, the GDPR will sanction fines for breaches of either 4% of your business’s global turnover or up to €20million – whichever is greater. This could have very serious consequences for your business; our specialist solicitors can help.

We regularly assist businesses of all sizes with data protection and GDPR issues. Our team will not only provide a comprehensive assessment, inventory and mapping of your data and audit your business but support you in all aspects related to data protection. To discuss your specific needs and concerns with an expert practitioner who can help, call us today on 0151 659 1070 or complete our online enquiry form and we will get back to you right away.

Data impact and privacy assessments

We will spend time with your business to go through your requirements to ensure compliance with the regulations. Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) assist your business to identify the most compliant ways to fulfil its data protection obligations and meet individuals’ expectations of privacy.  They are integral to an organisation’s approach to privacy. The GDPR sets out those circumstances in which it is mandatory for a DPIA to be carried out.
