Our experts will ensure that your documentation is a true reflection of how your business operates and where it is not, we will support you in drafting one that is.
There is now a lawful requirement to carry out a DPIA when you carry out a new process or modify an existing process. A DPIA allows you to asses all the potential risks within your project or process. It demonstrates that you have taken responsibility to consider the rights and freedoms of individuals.

Just like you need to ensure personal information is kept private and secure, you have a duty to ensure anyone you share this information with also guarantees the same level of privacy and security. On top of this, you must also carry out due diligence to satisfy the data protection requirements that are actually in place. This can be a lengthy and complex process.
Omaira will work with you to understand your business relationship with these third parties and support you to put in place third party contracts/data sharing agreements/updating contract addendums that are appropriate and cover the legal requirements. As part of this service, we can also audit the third party so that you can be sure, and demonstrate to the regulator, that your third parties have the adequate safeguards and protection in place.
This is your map, get it wrong and you will be lost!
One of the first steps to take on your journey to meeting the requirements of the relevant data protection laws is to identify what type of data is being processed (collected, stored, used, shared, etc.) within your organisation and the legal basis for it. This can be a daunting task but one that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Here at Omaira, we have systems in place to make things easy for you, saving you time and resources. Using our method will help your organisation adhere to data protection principles and gain the trust of your clients that their information is processed with good data protection practice in mind.
We can provide you with a way of recording all your processing activities in a clear and concise structure that will enable your organisation to meet data protection principles, as well as demonstrate your control over the information you process. We can also review and validate any process maps you already have in place or help you create new ones to streamline the processes within your organisation.
Audits are a key element to understanding how your organisation is performing in relation to data protection obligations and subsequently, identifying areas of concern. Although it may seem daunting opening up your organisation to scrutiny, it is an excellent opportunity to see what areas are complying with the relevant data protection laws and, more importantly, where you need to focus your time and resources to get things right.
We have a team of specialist that can conduct a tailored data protection audit of your organisation within a budget that suits you and provides you with a detailed but easy to read report presenting your position against the data protection scope. We will work with you to ensure you understand any recommendations we make and provide practical advice.
Appointing Omaira to conduct data protection audits will go a long way to demonstrate your organisation’s efforts to comply with its legal duties. On top of this, we provide a number of other services which complement the data protection audit.
The word ‘breach’ can strike fear and panic to any organisation. Under current data protection laws, a breach is the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data. So, there are quite a few instances where something can go wrong.
But, when a breach occurs, what is more important is how you manage that breach and what actions you and your business take. We can help you put in place the necessary processes and mechanisms to effectively and efficiently identify a breach, take steps to mitigate any potential harm and adopt a fluid system so you can learn from it.
Although experiencing a breach can be damaging to your organisational reputation, having a strong data breach management procedure will help build confidence and trust for your organisation.
If a data breach has already occurred within your organisation, get in touch with us as soon as possible and let us help you manage it the correct way.
With the increased use of technology within businesses, comes an increased level of risk to protecting valuable intellectual property and business information against theft, damage or misuse. Cyber-attacks can cause major disruption, as well as legal and reputational consequences, to any type of organisation. Therefore, it is essential to have a successful cyber security strategy that is proactive and adopts the right frameworks.
Omaira can help businesses develop cyber security resilience with a wide range of services to protect themselves from threats of both internal and external attacks. Our cyber security experts will take your compliance to another level. They can take you through the gaps in your security and provide penetration tests to understand weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
Complying with the data protection laws is not an option, it is a legal requirement. On top of this, having good data protection practices is in your interest as it will help gain and maintain the trust and confidence of your customers, clients and employees, and thus contribute to future business procurement.
We can provide you with an all in one package, dealing with every aspect necessary to be compliant with the relevant data protection laws that govern your organisation. But don’t worry, if we feel you are already complying in certain areas we will tell you, and provide a plan to further develop your compliance programme.
