Data Protection Handbook - VWV Law Firm

Data Protection Handbook

Policies, Procedures, the VWV Data Protection Handbook and Our Other Services

In addition to the training and subject access request support, we have developed a number of data protection products.

Data Protection Handbook

For GDPR it is not sufficient to be compliant, organisations must also be able to 'demonstrate' that compliance as well. We have developed a data protection handbook that contains the key documents for data protection compliance.

The documents contained in the handbook fall into four categories:

  • Privacy notices.
  • Documents for all staff, such as an information security policy that provides staff with practical guidance on subjects such as how to handle paper and electronic records securely, using personal devices for work, working from home, the use of email and encryption.
  • Documents for those with a specific data protection compliance role such as a data breach policy.
  • A template data processing contract for use with suppliers that handle personal data on your behalf (such as a payroll provider) plus a supplier compliance checklist.

The documents we provide are detailed and sector specific. Our privacy notices identify specifically which lawful bases should be used for different purposes rather than leaving it to you to 'fill in the blanks.'

The documents are also available to purchase individually rather than as part of the handbook.

Data Protection Helpline

We offer a service where for a fixed price we will provide telephone advice of up to one hour on an unlimited number of data protection related matters. This is for clients with need for regular support on data protection matters.

Other Data Protection Services

  • Policy review - We would review your data protection policies and identify any areas of non-compliance.
  • Audits - We offer a range of data protection audit services, including site visits.

If you would like to access any of our data protection services, please contact Andrew Gallie on 0117 314 5623.
