Data protection compliance is an ongoing obligation and all businesses are required to comply not only with the Data Protection Act 2018 but also with UK GDPR.
Significant changes have taken place since the introduction of the UK GDPR in 2018, including Brexit and changing methods of facilitating cross border data transfers. Data protection will inevitably continue to become more complex and subject to ongoing changes.
All businesses need to understand their obligations and be aware of the ongoing need to ensure data is being handled and protected correctly across the business. It is therefore now advisable for reviews of what was put in place to be carried out to ensure that your organisation remains compliant.
Where data is concerned, taking a proactive, ‘prevention is better than cure’, approach will stand your business in good stead. This is why we are currently encouraging clients to discuss their data protection requirements and compliance sooner rather than later.

WHY CHOOSE US FOR YOUR DATA PROTECTION SUPPORT?
In most cases, whatever your current issues we’ll have come across them before. We’ll also talk about them in layman’s language not jargon. Our aim is to ensure that we take away as much of the data protection compliance burden as you want us to, in a cost-effective way, leaving you free to concentrate on your core business.
Our data protection lawyers are specialists in this field and have been advising on data protection issues for many years. Both Matthew Cole and Emma Loveday-Hill hold the CIPP/E (Certified Information Privacy Professional Europe) qualification. Emma also holds the IAPP CIPM (Certified Information Privacy Manager) accreditation. Matthew has a particular specialisation in acting for businesses in the BioTech sector.
Our combined practical experience and understanding of the law enables us to offer both practical solutions and legal advice while ensuring that there is continuity between the two. This is not always the case with other data protection providers.
HOW CAN PRETTYS HELP ON AN ONGOING BASIS?
Some of the businesses who seek our support have long-established data protection teams headed by a Data Protection Officer (DPO) or Data Protection Manager and just want us to update them about changes, offer proactive advice regarding new projects involving different types or treatments of data and offer support for data breaches.
Others have data protection responsibilities sitting within Human Resources or another function, and no one dedicated to it as a full-time role. Therefore they want us take on the role of their DPO and provide full support.
We meet these differing needs by tailoring our service to suit the circumstances – this may result in a regular monthly retainer, a fixed-price project, or ad hoc advice on traditional hourly rate.
We are happy to work with you in whatever way you wish but the most sensible starting point for clients who haven’t used our data protection service before is a conversation with one of our specialists. Call us on 01473 232121 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your requirements and we will be happy to discuss your data protection needs with no obligation.
