Data and Cyber Security

We’ll help your information security and data protection teams communicate and collaborate so you can protect personal data in digital environments.

Data protection and information security teams typically house different skills sets, working processes and knowledge banks.

It’s essential these two teams work together so personal data is not only protected, but a Data Protection by Design and Default approach is properly embedded into your organisation.

We can help your organisation bridge the gap and improve the way these crucial individuals collaborate when protecting your personal data and responding to incidents.

Our services include:

We can help define your data security requirements with reference to the regulatory environment, local and international standards, industry best practice and your organisation’s unique requirements.

We’ll then help you plan, develop, document and execute these policies and procedures.

We can also provide specific data security support through our data auditing and data tracking services. Our sister company, IT Governance, can additionally implement, audit and test ISO 27001.

We can identify your organisational data requirements and translate these into actionable plans that ensure the consistency, accuracy, integrity and confidentiality of your data is maintained as it is collected, used, stored, modified or erased by the organisation.

We can also help map, assess, visualise and control your data risk.

We offer a range of bespoke and off-the-shelf training courses. Topics include:

Our approach to data protection and cybersecurity

 If you want to have confidence in your data, you need to ensure it is protected effectively. This stems from having trust in your risk assessments and controls.

In order to achieve this, information security and data protection teams must be able to communicate and work together successfully, and this is achieved through a mutual understanding of each team’s the key priorities.
