Actively engaged in providing EU data protection compliance support for fifteen years, our consultants have garnered significant experience with the EU Directive and its successor regulation, the GDPR.  Our team has hands-on experience in the planning and execution of PIAs (Privacy Impact Assessments) and PRAs (Privacy Risk Assessments) and the design of programs to fully implement GDPR compliance.  Once "on the ground" in your compliance team, our experienced consultants integrate rapidly and quickly assess your GDPR compliance risk in order to design, implement and document a robust compliance program.

 

Our Mission

Our consultants provide "best of breed" compliance guidance in any of the jurisdictions in which we will assist you; however, we do not field expensive local attorneys.  Rather we supply practical privacy compliance solutions based on fifteen years of broad experience guiding on EU Data Protection regulations and work within your budget to achieve the greatest scope of GDPR compliance as rapidly as possible.  By first conducting a high level data mapping and data inventory exercise, we quickly pinpoint the data streams with the greatest compliance risk.  We can then partner with your compliance team in the design of a systematic compliance program to address your GDPR exposure.
