GDPR Advisory Visits

What is a GDPR Advisory Visit?

The aim of an Advisory Visit is to give practical advice to organisations on how to improve data protection practice. It normally involves a visit from us to you of up to 3 hours and a short follow up report which we will send to you and which summarises what you should do next

What are the benefits of a GDPR Advisory Visit?

You will benefit from our knowledge and experience to identify what you are doing well and what you need to improve and receive practical recommendations and suggestions to put things right.

How do we conduct a GDPR Advisory Visit?

We will give you an information sheet before the visit to explain what you can expect. We will also ask you to fill out a short questionnaire which we will review with you during our visit.

We will use the visit to understand what policies and procedures you have in place and how they can be improved. The visit will also be flexible enough to provide an opportunity for you to ask questions.

Within seven days of the visit, we will send you a short report which will summarise what we have discussed, and provide you with practical advice.
