Using all information gathered, our engineer produced an easy to read, comprehensive report, highlighting threats with practical recommendations for improvement.

The findings of the report were then discussed in a post-assessment consultation at the Fentons office. We explained the vulnerabilities in a non-jargon way and agreed an IT project plan to help GDPR compliancy.

A fixed fee project plan with roadmap was approved, and work began within 2 weeks;

On successful completion of the project, the client decided to complete the government backed Cyber Essentials Certification. With Fentons’ guidance the self-assessment was submitted and passed first time.

The Outcome

The client is now speaking with industry experts to ensure all internal polices and procedures comply with the new GDPR framework.

As a result, the client now feels confident that they can demonstrate compliance with the new standards. Technical and organisational measures were put in place to ensure an appropriate level of security to meet the risks.
