The UK has a different data protection framework to the EU, and is considering overhauling aspects of the UK GDPR. Any company that trades between the UK and the EU now have to consider two data protection regimes, the EU’s and the UK’s.
Based in both the UK and Ireland, we help clients navigate the data protection and compliance risks of continuing to supply goods and services to the UK or EU market post Brexit.
SME Comply have been great for us. We handle some sensitive data and complex data flows and Gary has worked with us patiently and intelligently to make sure we are compliant in a post-Brexit world, and one in which the GDPR goalposts are continually moving. We have adopted a range of his templates and adapted several more, and whilst we have yet to take advantage of all that is on offer, knowing it is there to call upon has been a significant weight off our minds. Our work with SME Comply has also changed our relationship with several of our clients. We have some extremely discerning clients and we have always been proactive in seeking proper data protection for client data and this has sometimes been challenging for clients (not all of whom are as focused on this topic as they need to be); what has changed is the clarity with which we are now able to make the case and propose an approach, which helps both parties reach good agreements more easily. Highly recommended (but don’t all rush at once – we still need their help!)
