Supply Chain Review

Our supply chain review service identifies data protection and information security compliance risks and gaps within your organisation’s supply chain of data processing and sharing arrangements.

Supply Chain Management Overview

As soon as you transfer personal data to a third party, you take on a compliance and information security risk that you need to ensure is adequately managed.

Supplier assurance

It is vital your company take steps to comply with GDPR as the GDPR legislation has led to increased penalties and the prospect of compensation for personal data breaches. These risks have naturally led to increased litigation in data supply chains where the blame for personal data breaches and security failings is pinned on the weakest link. You should undertake a supply chain review to ensure this is not your organisation.

You need to ensure that the processors you appoint and their sub-processors that you approve are reliable and safe to be trusted with your data. Our supply chain review service can provide that assurance. Getting it wrong can be costly.

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    We have been receiving complaints over the last few weeks from people who have received unsolicited direct marketing calls from a company called The Protection People.  We should like to point out that we are Data Protection People and have nothing to do with those calls.

    We have been advising those people who have contacted us that they should make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) using this link https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/nuisance-calls-and-messages/spam-texts-and-nuisance-calls/.  It would be helpful to the ICO if you knew the number that called you, the date and time of the call and what the call seemed to be about.

    You might also want to register your phone number with the telephone preference service (TPS), a national suppression service which should cut down calls of this nature as it is not lawful to make unsolicited direct marketing calls to numbers registered on the TPS.  You can register your number here https://www.tpsonline.org.uk/register.

    We know that these kind of calls can be distressing and intrusive and you have our sympathy.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss it with us otherwise we’d encourage you to report it to the ICO as notifying them of this kind of practice enables them to investigate and take enforcement action where necessary.  You can see the action that has been taken by the ICO here https://ico.org.uk/action-weve-taken/enforcement/.
