IMG has been working in data protection for over 20 years and have experienced data privacy consultants, industry proven methodologies and have supported a number of organisations and industries in complying with applicable privacy requirements. We have individuals with leading privacy experience and certifications such as the Chartered Information Privacy Professional / Europe (CIPP/E), Chartered Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) and Data Protection Practitioner as well as certifications in the new General Data Protection Regulation. We pride ourselves on acting as a trusted advisor for our clients and being able to interpret privacy legislation and ensure it is practically implemented into our clients’ business operations.
Our approach to compliance is no different to other information security standards or regulatory requirements.
The basic principles are:
- A clearly defined strategy.
- Organisational wide controls.
- Processes and procedures (one of which will be the continual reassessment of the effectiveness of the data privacy/ protection programme).
IMG is an advocate of Secure by Design, and Data Privacy needs to be embedded into the full lifecycle of projects from planning and design through to the management and governance of the build and run phases.
