INFORMATION GOVERNANCE.

We offer specialist advice in data protection, freedom of information and information sharing. 

Data and the protection of information

Despite being a small so called 'high street practice', we are fortunate to employ Pauline Mainwaring, an expert in the niche area of information governance.

 

We can provide pragmatic advice on all aspects of data protection, freedom of information, information sharing, data processing and information management for commercial businesses and the public sector.

We will work with clients to provide solutions that fit harmoniously with their internal processes and culture in order to enhance and develop existing compliance.

Compliance with information law requirements can be seen as an unnecessary distraction from the everyday business of an organisation. But compliance with the Data Protection Act (DPA) makes good business sense and brings efficiency in time and costs.

 

Poor compliance can be a source of significant risk to reputation and customer confidence. It can also result in prosecution, civil claims and enforcement action including the imposition of monetary penalties. Developments in proposed legislation and in Court decisions mean data protection and information security compliance are, and will remain, key business priorities – full compliance with the DPA now will put UK businesses in the best place as the law in this area unfolds and develops.

Public Sector Organisations face challenges and operate in an environment subject to continuous scrutiny.

We help clients understand their obligations, implement appropriate systems for compliance and manage specific challenges as they arise from time to time.

We are able to work with small, medium and large private and public bodies and will provide well informed, but practical advice, in connection with all areas of data protection and information management.

 

We offer a bespoke service at extremely competitive prices.
