At Sapphire Consulting Group, we are privacy professionals.
Data protection is not a tick-box exercise. It requires an understanding of the principles of data protection and the rights of the data subject and how they work with your business. It requires thinking about your data processing and your data subject on a daily basis — how are you going to reduce the risk of a data breach? A good data protection audit requires conversations and information. A good data protection training session requires an engaging presenter with a deep knowledge of data protection law and who can explain the law with practical examples.
We are privacy professionals and balance compliance with commercial practicalities. We can offer practical solutions to your data protection issues and help you to achieve a sensible, workable balance between the needs of your organisation and the demands of the GDPR. We can help you to comply with the law while also showing you how it can genuinely help your organisation.
At Sapphire Consulting Group, we have a team ready to help you with your GDPR preparations. In addition to data protection, our team is skilled in a number of other areas, including employment law, business law, education, marketing, pharmaceuticals, shipping and off-shore oil and gas. We are a growing team — if you are interested in joining us, please get in touch.
