Leading Irish University – Provision of GDPR Services and Legal Research
Leading Irish University: Provision of GDPR Services and Legal Research
Leading Edge Group was engaged to lead this client towards GDPR compliance across its various schools, departments and administrative units.
The objectives of the project were to:
- Provide the DPO and team with niche training and knowledge that has ties to data protection (protected disclosures)
- Provide clarity around the legal basis for holding data assets
- Create a process for identifying ‘gaps’ in compliance and producing a remedial plan, plus the creation of Article 30 records (records of processing activities). It was important that this process could be replicated as it allows the College to continue with this necessary work after we had finished our assignment.
In addition, our expert legal researcher has conducted comprehensive research into the intricacies of the legal basis for holding personal data by the College. From this research, we created a ‘Plain English’ guidebook for the College to act as a reference document going forward.
