SCS Group is skilled at operationalising the GDPR, balancing sufficient and perfect privacy to make it work for your business.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the 1995 EU directive (Directive 95/46/EC ) and was introduced in May 2016 with full enforcement due in May 2018.
To meet the needs of this changing landscape we provide a range of GDPR services across the privacy lifecycle.
Our privacy services cover all elements of the lifecycle
GDPR awareness – workshops of variable length covering the key changes coming with GDPR. Delivered to all key stakeholders across the business, including marketing, IT, HR, finance, security, operations, etc.

GDPR Compliance audit for cloud
Cloud service providers that process personal data will face significant scrutiny during this coming year, given that their customers are potentially liable for any breach of the regulation.
Not only do you need to be fully aware of the cloud services being used within your organisation, but you also need to understand the services your employees are using too.
Personal data is often found in emails and unstructured content such as documents that are stored in cloud services and not monitored by IT departments.
Ahead of GDPR coming into force in 2018, companies must implement measures to give them visibility of these cloud services and bring them under their control, to ensure compliance.
