The GDPR Accountability Principle (Article 5(2)), makes preparation and compliance a board issue. This requires a strategic approach to enable governing bodies to strategically align Data protection and GDPR across your organisation. This starts with GDPR Organisational Discovery, a short but strategic assessment of your compliance and the development of a high-level roadmap to compliance. We have vast experience to support your needs in this discovery phase.

Most organisations will conduct a Data Protection Impact Assessment(s) (DPIAs). This can be a daunting task, OSP can provide a methodology, training and consultancy to help you carry out one or more DPIAs. Our method is to take a contextual risk based approach using the Data Protection impact assessment (DPIA) process as the starting point to develop a comprehensive and tailored solution that will work for you.

The development of measures to address the risks and to demonstrate compliance, or Risk Treatment Plan will be focused on providing a capability, that allows you to Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond & Recover Personal data. All of these measures are in accordance with best practice for Data Protection & security by design and by default, within the guidance from the ICO and National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

The Risk Treatment Plan which will be developed will include the provision of some standard policies and procedures which can be configured to your company as a set of recommendations for security measures.
