Businesses are increasingly reliant on valuable and high-quality data.
Protecting both internal and client data is the cornerstone of an efficient, proactive and compliant organisation.
Since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in 2018, Ocorian’s compliance specialist subsidiaries, Newgate and Platinum Compliance, have been assisting clients globally with implementing clear and practical frameworks to help identify and manage risks to data protection.
Our wide experience across compliance, financial crime, risk monitoring and technology make us the ideal data protection services partner – we understand not only the internal workings of firms in this space, but also the inherent and emerging risks in the sector itself.
A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a process to help you identify and minimise the data protection risks of a project. You must conduct a DPIA for projects that are likely to result in a high risk to individuals’ data. We can assist.
Having assessed your data protection systems, policies and processes, we can work on improving the areas in need of attention.
We assist with the registration and reporting to the relevant Data Protection Commissioners. This includes drafting and oversight of GDPR manuals, EU model clause agreements, safe harbour arrangements, privacy notices and GDPR assistance.
The rules governing data management and handling can be complex and may require clients to dispose of older data. Our experts can quickly identify where you may be keeping data beyond the legal limit.
We understand that each business will have unique needs, so our flexible pricing model scales up or down to meet your requirements.
