We will map the personal data in your Organisation or Legal Practice

The vast majority of organisations have not adequately mapped all of their personal data.

As such, they are non-compliant with Article 30 the GDPR. (There's an excerpt from Article 30 at the bottom of this page.)

Irrespective of the size of your organisation: You must know precisely what personal data you hold or process, why you are processing it, who has access to it, how long you’re going to keep it, and what measures you have in place to protect it.

Also, handing breaches, dealing with Data Subject Access Requests and issuing Privacy Notices is far easier when your data has been comprehensively mapped.

So, just how big is this? What personal data might a small ‘typical’ high street legal Practice process?

In fact, the scale of the challenge (and for many, the non-compliance) is huge; as is the risk.

The Information Asset Register below records the personal data, in a manner compliant with Article 30 of the GDPR,  of a small legal Practice.
