Faringdon, UK, 5th September 2017- Leading cyber security and compliance solutions provider, Core to Cloud, is delighted to announce that it has entered into a new partnership with Data Protection People Limited to further its pursuit in helping customers secure everything from the core to the cloud. The partnership provides true synergy for the two organisations, both of which are supporting customers on their journey to compliance – a process which is especially relevant today as businesses plan and prepare for GDPR.

Data Protection People undertakes data protection gap analysis audits and reviews, as well as a variety of data protection, privacy and information rights projects. On top of this, the company also operates as the outsourced or interim data protection officer for several organisations and provides hands on resource to other companies who need assistance in implementing action plan recommendations. Offering a highly consultative approach, the company helps organisations by first undertaking a gap analysis and on the back of this then creating a bespoke action plan. Often, Data Protection People will also assign a data protection officer to the client’s team on an outsourced basis.

David Hendry, Sales and Marketing Director, Data Protection People comments: “Our action plans contain a series of tasks which we deem as being the necessary steps to take in order to achieve compliance with the GDPR. This helps organisations separate GDPR tasks into manageable projects to then distribute internally within a steering group, or delegate out to the DPP consultancy team for assistance. Whilst DPP’s core focus is on the process, procedures and governance frameworks required our gap analysis reviews also helps us to identify what technology, i.e. what security or governance solutions, organisations may need to put in place, which is where Core to Cloud comes in. As a truly independent and trusted advisor, Core to Cloud can evaluate the customer’s requirements and recommend the best solution to meet their needs.”

Core to Cloud sells solutions that help organisations to discover, defend and respond to the latest security threats on the horizon while ensuring compliance. Core to Cloud brings highly disruptive security and cloud technologies, to market and, as a business, looks at the bigger picture, working hard to understand the business requirements and objectives, analysing an organisation’s particular pain points and aligning technology solutions to their specific needs.

James Cunningham, Sales Director, Core to Cloud comments: “We understand that it can be relatively straightforward to establish where you want to go, but much harder to set the wheels in motion to get you there. At Core to Cloud we take you on a journey whether that means recommending a point solution, or looking more holistically at your overall security and compliance requirements. Often the recommendations that come out of the gap analysis undertaken by Data Protection People are all about understanding data. For example, does the organisation know what data it has, where this data is stored, who has access, and where the data ends up and so on. This is where we can help.”

Core to Cloud has a series of events that put the spotlight on various aspects of the GDPR, from data breaches to subject access requests and more, which will also be attended by Data Protection People. If you are in the process of preparing for the GDPR or want to discuss your challenges around GDPR, do register for one of these events here. Or if you are interested in speaking to anyone from Core to Cloud please call 01367 701500.
