Why do small businesses need data protection support?

As a micro or small business, we have enough to juggle with our being our own business development, marketing, finance, HR, and Operations departments, and trying to make sure we do all the relevant compliance that goes with that. That is before we add data protection.

We don’t need to tell you it is a legal requirement. We have all heard of GDPR, the Data Protection Act and possibly even the Privacy Electronic Communication Regulation, and as someone who has read it all, we understand entirely why businesses struggle to implement it. It is a maze or like walking in a treacle. Why do small businesses need data protection support?

Micro and small businesses already have a lot on their plates, from managing business development, marketing, finance, HR, and operations to ensuring compliance with various regulations. Adding data protection to the mix only complicates things further.

Like with HR and accounting, we can’t always do things in-house. Due to the complex and constantly evolving nature of data protection laws, we encourage small businesses to consider seeking external data protection support.

External support can help these businesses remain compliant with regulations, navigate the complexities of data protection, reduce the risk of data breaches, and free up internal resources to focus on essential business activities. Leveraging external expertise can enable small businesses to protect sensitive data, build trust with customers, and avoid potential legal and financial consequences associated with non-compliance.

Who do we support?

We’re a small business, too, specialising in enabling small businesses to implement and BENEFIT data protection and compliance in their business.

We primarily support small growing businesses with 5 to 100 staff who are seeking assistance with data protection and compliance. Our ideal client is one who may lack the time, energy, and expertise to navigate the complexities of data protection and is looking for guidance on where to begin. Our goal is to provide accessible and practical solutions for businesses that recognize the importance of data protection but may be unsure of how to effectively implement it within their organisation.

We love supporting solopeneurs too, and we understand that there is usually only a (very) small budget for data protection.

How data and compliance can help your business?

Think of your business as a well oiled machine, that came with the original instructions. You know how it works, so don’t need the instructions.  You have ‘filed’ them.

Overtime, the ‘machine’ has multiple add-ons installed. As a result, it the machine is ‘chugging along’, and it is time to upgrade to this super ‘machine’. It streamlines everything, comes with how-to use it guides and has all the latest safety features to meet legal requirements.

It is a no-brainer! The upgrade will allow the machine to do so much more, faster and more efficiently, AND will pay for itself in no time. You see the safety features and manual and you know they aren’t there to slow you down, but allow you to grow and do more. 

And that is what we do as a data protection and business consultant. We help you improve your machine – trade it up, without add-ons.  We look at what you use, how you use it, whether are there duplications, are you using it to its max. Then work with you to streamline systems and hopefully, save money.

As a growing business, it is essential to get processes written down in a simple straightforward way, for your team to follow. When starting out, you know how everything works. Unfortunately, new team members don’t and it can take time to go through how to do things. Time you could be spending with clients and growing your business. Putting things in place help reduce that time. Plus, if someone else needs to cover, it is all in place for them to take over. 

Information and data is like a fuel to your machine. You need it to make it run. No matter what you do, you have information and data – it powers the business. Having the right processes in place for data protection, again, streamlines processes, can save time when individuals ask for their data as you know where it is, and reduce risk of incidents and breaches and make things run smoother. And the biggest cause of a data incident is human error. 

Let us support you to get the best out your ‘business machine’ and reduce it breaking down.  Compliance does not slow you down, but allow you to grow and build your business on a solid foundation.
