Data Due Diligence

In line with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act)  and other domestic and global data protection regulations being introduced, The Trust Bridge (TTB) runs an audit service for organizations who are undertaking any due diligence on a 3rd party organization. (Investment, M&A, Supply Chain)

TTB will report on the status of any 3rd party organization to ensure either that it is aligned with these regulations or report where there are current and potential problem areas and recommend remedial action.  Where required, we work with the client to implement the necessary changes to operations and procedures to comply with governmental regulations.

Nominated European Representative Service

While the GDPR is a European regulation, many organizations outside of Europe will be unaware that they are required to appoint a Nominated European Representative under certain conditions, e.g. if they are doing business with EU citizens.

The Trust Bridge can offer a Nominated European Representative Service (a legal requirement under GDPR Article 27) as well as a UK Representative office

Value to ECIA Members

By undertaking the Data Protection Alignment process, any organization achieves a co-ordinated multi pronged approach to GDPR and CCPA which accelerates alignment to the new global data protection requirements. With a clear plan, progress monitoring, subsequent review and evidence based decisions can be made to deliver best practice and compliance readiness.

The process will help reduce the length of time a specialist resource is needed and gives you the ability to review and modify action plans/ roadmaps and delivery throughout the process, while identifying new risks and potential mitigation.

The Alignment process will achieve Board level understanding of the opportunities and challenges inherent in the new regulations,  enabling development of a strategic plan and roadmap to deliver focus,  direction and compliance with GDPR / CCPA governance and accountability.

It will provide an agreed direction for legacy data, current data and future proofing capabilities ensuring alignment with  laws and will demonstrate to the regulator that you are investing in activity and taking tangible steps towards full compliance.

The assessment reports will present a clear picture of the current position relating to the data held, how it is handled and managed, and the data flowing through the wider supply chain.
