About The GDPR Guys
The GDPR Guys are a team of highly experienced Risk and Compliance practitioners. We work with large and small firms to achieve compliance with the GDPR and other associated privacy regulations. We have clients in over 90 countries and have successfully helped in excess of 400 companies with their GDPR journeys.
Compliance with the law is a necessity for every business, big or small. However, it is critically important to ensure the cost of compliance is inline with both the probability of risks occurring and potential impact those risks have on the business. Our approach is to ensure we create a solution that is proportionate to the risks. Rather than suggest you enter into a costly project to become fully compliant and address every conceivable risk, we take a view that understanding the risks allows you establish a position of defensibility. This allows us to keep costs down while ensuring we have addressed the most significant risks to your business while also assuring your staff, customers and suppliers that their data is properly protected while under your control.
