We work closely with you to identify and develop practical and pragmatic solutions.


Our Assurance Services include

Data Protection Health Checks

We provide a targeted Data Protection Health Check service to support all types of organisations and businesses. Our Health Checks provide a structured and informative review of compliance with GDPR and local data protection legislation using a tried-and-tested set of tools tailored to individual business needs.

They focus on both business and IT requirements, looking at what personal information is held and processed and what data protection risks exist, and deliver a bespoke report and plan to allow your business to move towards compliance and ensure you maintain compliance. We deliver three levels of health checks:

  1. Rapid Review
  2. Risk-based Health Check
  3. Full Data Protection Audit


Business Continuity Plan – Gap Analysis and Assessment

Based on ISO 22301, we conduct a detailed gap analysis and assessment of your Business Continuity Plan. Our analysis will enable you to develop an effective business continuity management plan against an internationally recognised standard. We work closely with you to identify weaknesses and areas of concern, manage or minimise your organisational risk, and improve your resilience. Our BCP Analysis and Assessment work will:

  • Provide confirmation of business continuity scope
  • Identify legal, regulatory and contractual obligations
  • Identify gaps in your current plan against ISO 22301
  • Identify risks in your current plan
  • Provide a framework for the remediation of gaps and management of identified risks
