GDPR and Data Protection
Effective Solutions for GDPR and Data Protection
Compliance with the GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 is fundamental for all businesses and, in particular, those which are regulated as a breach will not only create interest from the Information Commissioner’s Officer (ICO) but also their regulator.
The impact of breaches can be significant, and avoiding breaches comes from ongoing maintenance of policies and reviews of their implementation.
Well documented processes and procedures are critical for a business to ensure compliance and, importantly, to be able to respond quickly in the event of a breach or investigation.
Our services for GDPR and Data Protection Compliance include:
- Policy drafting and maintenance
- General Terms and Conditions and Contracts
- Website policies and documentation
- Breach advice and guidance
- Register management
- Training for Data Protection Officers and Staff
- Independent auditing
- ICO breach reporting
- Subject Access Request responses and management
The GDPR and Data Protection Act requires constant management and our support will ensure that internal officers have additional support to ensure a business is compliant and remains compliant.

Data Protection: Policies, Controls and Procedures
The Data Protection Act 2018 and The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) affects all businesses.
Having policies and procedures in place to protect the data of those you hold information on is not just essential – it is a legal requirement. Failure to adhere to the legislative requirements can render businesses liable for sanctions by their regulator or result in significant fines.
We work with businesses to implement an effective set of data protection policies and procedures that ensure the business has created the correct environment to manage, control and protect data.
Not every business can stop a determined data thief from taking data from its systems. The industry is littered with examples of complex systems being accessed by ‘hackers’ and data being stolen. However, if your business is exposed to data theft or data loss, the focus will turn to the policies and procedures you had and have in place to protect the data you hold.
If your business has not followed the necessary requirements of your regulators, negative legal consequences will follow.
AML & Compliance works with existing businesses to review their current approach to data protection. We aim to enhance this, where necessary, and assist start-up businesses or those which have not fully considered the impact of data protection. Our focus is to ensure that all the businesses we work with understand and comply with the requirements of the legislation and therefore protect the data they hold. We ensure the businesses we work with have proportionate and sensible policies to actively demonstrate the efforts taken to control and protect data.
