Having comprehensive and user friendly policies to guide employees in relation to how your organization expects them to behave is a crucial aspect of any compliance programme. In the absence of such policies and training programmes, organisations cannot expect their employees to know what is expected. Nor can they enforce compliance.
Merrion Data Consultants has extensive experience in drafting and reviewing a broad range of policies which are essential to ensure the proper and secure handling of personal information. These include:-
- Data Protection Policies;
- Marketing Policies;
- Bring Your Own Devices Policies;
- Social Media Policies;
- IT Security Policies;
- Home-working Policies;
- CCTV Policies;
- Policies covering the handling of Subject Access Requests and other requests for information; and
- Policies governing the sharing of personal information.
We at Merrion Data Consultants understand that if such policies are to be effective, they must reflect the culture of the organization seeking to enforce them and be user friendly. We will work with you to understand your business, the culture you wish to promote and how your employees work. We will then use this information to draft policies which fit those requirements.
If you already have policies in place but would like to evaluate them in order to check that they are up to date and comprehensive, we would be pleased to support you in that process also.
