Data Protection is about more than just the GDPR

When determining the potential impact that data protection could have on your organisation, it is important to remember that there is more to consider than just the GDPR.

iSTORM can help you to navigate and understand the additional regulations and supporting standards which are relevant to your business and can help you map out what your journey to compliance looks like.

We are firm believers in engaging on an operational level, working with marketing, data, finance and procurement, as well as traditional key stakeholders in compliance and legal.

An effective data protection compliance framework is a cultural and business issue, not just a compliance one.

GDPR Audit & Assurance solutions

At iSTORM, our audit and assurance solutions are tailored to your business.

We can help you to understand what processing is being carried out, what personal data is involved and whether the processing is compliant with internal policies and the regulatory requirements of the GDPR, Data Protection Act and PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations).

Marketing support (Electronic and Direct mail)

When dealing with electronic or digital marketing there is more to consider than just the GDPR.

If your business engages in electronic marketing activities then consideration also needs to be given to the  Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation (PECR) as well as industry best practices.

iSTORM has a wealth of experience in dealing with the complexities of producing effective marketing campaigns and can help you create campaigns which meet your commercial desires, while ensuring you stay in line with the law.

GDPR Gap Analysis and maturity reviews

A Gap Analysis is a great way to identify key areas of risk in relation to GDPR and data protection compliance.

Our targeted gap analysis will focus on what’s important for your organisation with the output allowing us to determine what your compliance journey will look like, and how much further assistance you may require.

If you already have good data protection framework in place then our maturity reviews can give you reassurance that everything is still compliant.

Processes, systems and controls change over time, a maturity review allows your organisation to reflect on what is already in place and helps to identify key areas for remediation. 

iSTORM Outsourced DPO solution

The role of a Data Protection Officer is an independent one.

The DPO can be called upon by the business and individuals alike, be they a customer, an employee or even a member of the public who wants to know if their data is being processed and why.

An experienced DPO can advise a business on how to collect, manage and process personal data fairly and lawfully while ensuring they achieve the right balance between the business needs and the rights and freedoms of its customers and employees.

iSTORM offers a fully managed outsourced DPO Solution which allows an organisation to meet their regulatory and commercial requirements without the need for a permanent in-house resource.

Our DPO Service is tailored to your business needs, with support starting from as little as 1 day per month. For more information on how our specialist DPO team can support your organisation, contact us today.
