Our services

The EU General Data Protection Regulation ‘GDPR’) comes into force on 25 May 2018, marks a drastic change in the European data protection regime.

It places a heavier burden on organisations to put in place the appropriate organisational and technical measures to ensure compliance. The GDPR is all about accountability and transparency and ensuring your data protection strategy is properly documented and maintained. At Eurocomply we understand the important role personal data has for your business and we offer a wide range of consultancy services to support you on your GDPR journey.

  • Data Inventory/ Data Mapping
  • Gap Analysis
  • Data Protection Impact Assessments
  • Data Protection Officer Services
  • Data Protection Programme
  • Privacy by design
  • Sector specific advisory
  • Training & Seminars
  • Data Inventory/ Data Mapping

    The GDPR introduces comprehensive recordkeeping obligations on controllers. Prior to conducting a gap-analysis it is important to have a thorough understanding of what data your organisation processes. Understanding how data flows in and out of your business is important for two reasons. Firstly for your own internal compliance and secondly, to ensure compliance across your company’s data supply chain. Creating an inventory of exactly what data you hold will help you get clarity. Furthermore, this must be done on an ongoing basis to ensure the legal obligations of Article 30 GDPR are being met. At any given time you should be able to identify the 5 W's as regards the personal data you hold: Who, What, When, Why, Where. Conducting a data inventory with Eurocomply can help you get a clear understanding of your business functions and activities which then results in a meaningful and truthful map of all your data.

  • Gap Analysis

    The goal of the Eurocomply GDPR Gap Analysis is to do a general assessment of the level of compliance and provide actionable steps that your company can undertake in order to become compliant, reduce risk, and improve how personal data is handled. Depending on your business needs Eurocomply can offer a number of different of analyses. If you’re an SME we recommend starting with the Eurocomply 3-Day assessment to kick-start the compliance journey. For organisations that require a deeper, more comprehensive, assessment we offer customised plans to suit your needs.

  • Data Protection Impact Assessments

    The GDPR makes it mandatory to conduct a data protection impact assessment (DPIA) for certain processing activities that are likely to result in a ‘high risk’ to individuals whose data is being processed. DPIAs are a tool which can help identify the most effective way to comply with your data protection obligations and meet individuals’ expectations of privacy. An effective DPIA will allow you to identify and fix problems at an early stage, reducing the associated costs and damage to reputation which might otherwise occur. DPIAs are an integral part of taking a privacy by design approach which Eurocomply can support you with.

  • Data Protection Officer Services

    Your business may not require a full-time DPO. At Eurocomply we offer DPO as a service. In practice this means that for a set fee per month, depending on the number of hours required, you can engage one of our consultants to act as a DPO for your organisation and answer any data protection queries you may have.

  • Data Protection Programme

    Eurocomply can support your business with the creation of a GDPR implementation programme and ongoing data protection strategy. This includes developing processes to deal with Data Subject Rights (Access requests), Data Protection Impact Assessments, Policy review, Data Breach Policy and procedures etc.

  • Privacy by design

    The GDPR makes it mandatory to implement the principles of privacy by design and default. We offer advisory services and workshops to make sure your development team knows how to meet this new requirement. We are pragmatists and will help educate your staff with actionable steps and refer to resources to further educate them.

  • Sector specific advisory

    Our experienced consultants can support you in dealing with data protection issues specific to your business. Compliance is rarely a one-size-fits-all exercise. Life Sciences, Gaming, Financial Services, Insurance all face a number of industry specific challenges when it comes to GDPR.

  • Training & Seminars

Testimonials

  • It has been a great pleasure to have recently worked with Emerald in a professional capacity, as she is working with my company to prepare us for GDPR compliance. My team has been impressed with Emerald’s ability to bring life to a mundane topic. More importantly, her communication skills and expert knowledge, combined with practical business acumen has made this daunting task relatively easy.

    Mary Byrne
    CEO Statistical Solutions
  • Emerald was great to work with. She was very patient and accommodating of our various requirements and delivered an excellent presentation for our clients who are primarily based in Canada. She not only tailored her GDPR Masterclass presentation to the needs of our clients but was also flexible and knowledgeable enough to adapt the content even during delivery to reflect what other speakers had already mentioned. Given her in-depth knowledge of the topic, and her outstanding delivery of the Masterclass webinar, we would most definitely work with Emerald again should the opportunity arise.
