SPECIALISING IN BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION AND GDPR
Southwood Management Solutions is a boutique management consulting firm located in London, specialising in business transformation and GDPR compliance. We are a small team of seasoned professionals who selectively engage with clients ready to challenge the status quo and reshape their business to build sustainable competitive advantage.
WHY CHOOSE US?
We take a pragmatic approach to transformation. We believe that in the end, all of our work boils down to people, process and systems.
Understanding the connectivity between these three pillars is critical for the successful execution of any strategy.
Our key focus in all engagements is to identify and remove any underlying cultural and structural constraints that impede our mission.
At Southwood, we listen, observe and work to understand the subtext of our clients culture in addition to their stated business needs. Using this approach we are able to produce sustainable change that lasts long after our contract engagements are complete.
What is GDPR?
General Data Protection Regulation is an EU data protection regulation, which introduced a series of ‘data subject’ rights in 2018 to ensure that all EU residents have control over their personal data.
Even if you are an organisation operating outside of the EU, the GDPR still provides the gold standard of data protection legislation which your EU based clients will expect you to adhere to.
These rights include being able to obtain easily accessible information in plain language about the use of personal data and the personal data itself, ordering the alteration or deletion of incorrect personal data, the ability to restrict or object to the processing of personal data and more.
Why do I need to comply?
Any EU companies that do not comply with the new regulations and suffer data breaches will be subject to massive fines of up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 million, whichever is greater.
Companies operating outside of the EU will face massive reputational damage and great financial loss as customers lose faith and migrate to a rival who can protect their sensitive data.
Therefore, in the face of this potential financial penalty, and considering the risk to your reputation that non-compliance holds, GDPR compliance is essential. The easiest and surest way of doing this is by employing the help of a GDPR consultancy firm, like Southwood.
What will we do?
We’ll assess your business’s IT systems and procedures, measuring it against the demands of these new data protection requirements and work alongside you as an extension of your business to fill in the gaps.
From helping you to review and assess your existing systems through to improving your cybersecurity systems and IT infrastructure, we’ll put together a bespoke action plan and be with you every step of the way.
