General Data Protection Regulation.

Find out how we can help you below.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the toughest privacy and security law in the world. Drafted and passed by the European Union (EU), it imposes obligations onto organisations anywhere they collect Personally Identifiable Information (PII), also refered to as Personal Data, related to EU residents. The regulation became effective on May 25, 2018. The GDPR imposes harsh fines against those who breach its privacy and security standards, with penalties reaching into millions of euros.

As a qualified and experienced GDPR consultant, Sohrab can help you achieve and maintain compliance and sustainability with a professional and cost-effective strategy.

He undertakes independent audit of your compliance environment with the objective to assess the current state of the regulation's readiness across your organisation's processes against the requirements as defined by the GDPR. The project approach is based on three key phases:


Perform GDPR gap assessment and data mapping.

Develop remediation strategy and action plan.

Implementation and sustainability.


The gap assessments have been designed to work around your schedule with the aim to minimise disruption to your employees.

Upon completion of the gap assessment, you will be provided with a compliance report that gives you detailed information on what needs to be actioned, prioritised and the steps that you should take to remedy any gaps. The report will contain recommendations as well as an activity list, on steps needed to ensure compliance.

Once the findings have been reviewed and agreed, implementation will commence on all agreed recommendations from the remediation and action plan.

Let Sohrab help you achieve and maintain GDPR compliance.
