Data Privacy Training

GDPR and clinical regulatory compliance are everyone’s responsibility. It needs a team approach. Responsible organisations train their management and clinical teams in data privacy and protection, empowering them to play their part. It is also an opportunity to demonstrate the organisation’s commitment to carefully handling all personal data.

Data Protection Impact Assessment

A Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) is a process to help you systematically analyse, identify, and minimise the data protection risks of a particular project or plan. A DPIA is required under the GDPR any time you begin a new project that involves a high risk to other people’s personal information and is mandatory for processing health-related data.

Data Mapping

GDPR requires businesses to handle personal data lawfully, fairly and securely. To be able to do this, it is essential to understand the lifecycle of the personal data you process – what, why, where, when and how personal data is used by your organisation. This process is known as Data Mapping.

Mandatory Documentation

Creating, updating or reviewing data protection documentation can be challenging, especially as the content is industry-specific and legal. Without GDPR knowledge or experience, handling mandatory documentation can be a minefield. Let our data protection specialists with a keen eye for detail ensure your documents demonstrate GDPR compliance.

Cross-Border Transfers

International data transfers are now the norm rather than the exception. However, the additional steps required to transfer data under EU/UK data protection law, including complex Transfer Impact Assessments (TIAs) and the confusion around suitable transfer tools, can lead research projects to be delayed or cancelled. We can provide up-to-date information and advice on GDPR compliant cross-border transfers and the Standard Contractual Clauses.

Technical and Organisational Measures (TOM)

Technical and Organisational Measures (TOMs) are the functions, processes, controls, systems and procedures used to protect and secure the personal information you collect, process and store. You must demonstrate that you have integrated data protection into every aspect of your processing activities by having appropriate TOMs in place to achieve GDPR compliance.
