General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The current Data Protection Act 1998 was superseded by the EU GDPR on the May 25th 2018, requiring organisations to have far more robust data protection measures in place. At Eastside Primetimers we recognise the importance of good data governance, and we offer a comprehensive data management audit service to help an organisation become fully compliant with the GDPR, and mitigate the risk of a data breach.

In April 2017 the Information Commissioner’s Office fined 11 charities a total of £138,000 for data breaches. Earlier, in 2012, a charity was fined £200,000. In addition to the serious financial consequences, adverse PR resulting from a data breach can impact on donor support.

The Service

Our GDPR compliance service consists of 3 discrete phases:

  • Phase 1: comprehensive data, systems, and procedures audit with report and recommendations
  • Phase 2: development of a workable project plan for implementation of the recommended changes
  • Phase 3: management of the implementation project

Providence Row“We are a homelessness charity in East London and we recently brought in Eastside Primetimers consultant Mike Griffin to support us to update our data protection policies and procedures so they are in line with the new regulation (GDPR). We have greatly appreciated Mike’s knowledge and expertise on the subject, but also his ability to articulate recommendations in a clear, concise way. He takes the time to understand the organisation and provides very practical and pragmatic advice. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eastside Primetimers to any other organisation looking for data protection consultancy” Nicola Robson, Marketing Manager
Wave Leisure Trust“We want to be the best we can be and lead the way on key aspects within our sector, such as GDPR compliance. The Wave Team is positive about the required changes we have identified for compliance and by utilising the professional GDPR services of Eastside Primetimers, I have no doubt that we will successfully reach our objectives” Duncan Kerr, CEO
