  • Sensitive Data - What is sensitive data and what measures are businesses expected to take to protect it.

  • Policies - What policies, privacy notices and procedures a business requires vis-a-vis privacy regulatory compliance.

  • Data Mapping - To comply with Article 30 GDPR businesses need to maintain data process and asset inventories identifying owners, purpose, legitimate basis, security, technical and operational attributes and associated risks. We will talk you through what you need to do in practical terms.
