In our blogs we make clear the need for all businesses to consider how they manage personal data within their organisations. One of the concerns for smaller businesses is that this can become expensive and time consuming. The other concern is, of course, the need to be compliant with the relevant regulations. Balancing these requirements in a small or micro business can be difficult.
CSRB are pleased to announce a new data protection support package for micro businesses, SMEs, and sole traders. This data protection support package will involve a low time investment for the business owner (less than 30 minutes per month), and brings affordable, certified personal data protection advice and UK GDPR support into reach.
The data protection support package will deliver everything needed to demonstrate accountability with UK GDPR, over a phased delivery timeframe of twelve months.
A monthly fixed price subscription, supports cashflow, and spreads the investment over a longer period. The investment has been kept deliberately low due to the support package being delivered online, in line with our eco values. Sustainable data protection support one might say!
From the outside personal data protection can appear to be a complex subject with lots of different routes to achieving the right protection for you and your business. Thus, our support package starts with a one-hour online workshop that gives an overview of UK GDPR and what your responsibilities are. During this session we set out a roadmap of the journey to compliance.
A subsequent individual thirty minute 1:1 session guides you through registration with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office), the industry regulator, a vital legal step on your privacy path.
CSRB then delivers five key policies or procedures required for UK GDPR accountability regarding demonstrating compliance. CSRB delivers these one at a time, every six weeks, to avoid overwhelm.
To help with your understanding, a fifteen minute online 1:1 session is arranged, with a certified data protection practitioner. The practitioner presents each of the key policies/procedures, bringing the document to life and emphasising how this will be a business growth document within your business. Any questions can be answered at this point.
How often has a supplier provided something for your business, and left you to interpret it, or it has gone into a virtual filing cabinet, never to be seen or understood again?
So, your total time commitment required, to achieve UK GDPR compliance is under three hours spread across the whole year. CSRB does everything else!
We even provide an additional annual two hours of certified advice and support within the package, to provide peace of mind that you have everything covered.
As compliance with UK privacy laws is always evolving rather than standing still, CSRB offers continued support in the second or later years. CSRB delivers this in the form of policy/procedure reviews, a one-hour online workshop to keep you up to date with the latest UK privacy requirements for business owners. Increased additional support hours can again be called off across the year.
The other concern surrounding personal data protection support being a financial headache has also been addressed. CSRB does not want cashflow to be a barrier to compliance or opportunity. To that end we have positioned the course at an introductory price of £95 + VAT per month for the first 12 months and a second-year price of £45 per month + VAT.
