“Camilla is a very knowledgeable professional allied to a great ability to ‘get things done’. I have very much appreciated her words of wisdom and can-do approach’.
Kai Winterbottom, Data Protection Officer, Aldermore Bank
“DQM GRC initially conducted a GDPR readiness review which highlighted a number of areas the team at Pearson needed to work on to be ready for GDPR. Since the review they have been supporting us on site with our data mapping and Records of Processing in order to ensure we are compliant to our Article 30 obligations. We have found their team to be supportive and helpful which has enabled us to move forward with our overall GDPR plan.”
Stephen McCartney, EU Director of Privacy, Pearson
“Comic Relief has been supported by DQM GRC with a variety of GDPR initiatives. Most recently they ran a workshop to help us with our data mapping and Article 30 compliance and the software tools that could support this, as well as a breach response workshop which the team found valuable and engaging. I have already recommended their services to colleagues in the not for profit sector many times.”
Liz Curry, Business Planning and Process Manager, Comic Relief
