The Challenge

With the introduction of GDPR, data protection rules have been significantly tightened and you can no longer afford to do nothing and risk a data breach. You don’t want to risk falling foul of the regulations and landing in trouble with the Information Commissioner. However, most accountants and businesses lack the resources, expertise and knowledge on data protection, not to mention the time to review existing processes and to establish new, complicated ones. 

The Solution

IRIS GDPR Advisor guides you through the process of compliance, making the task easier to understand and simpler to complete. A range of tools, document templates, processes and planning guides are available. With access to technical support, including a comprehensive, regularly updated FAQ page, the process is made as smooth as possible. Completed templates can be uploaded to the secure portal for safe storage.

We don’t have the resources to employ a full-time data support officer; we have no time or inclination to become experts in data protection either – it’s not our core business. The relationship we have with The Data Support Agency is similar to our accountants, bookkeepers and HR specialists. We outsource all of these functions to get the most cost-effective access to the expertise we need to run our business. With GDPR, I see data support as another area where we need outside help."             Resonates SLM Ltd
