Data Protection Officer Training
For organisations who decide to assign this role to an existing employee or recruit specifically for this task, Sterling can provide all the necessary training to ensure that the person or persons understand the role, the existing legislation, industry specific regulations and forthcoming changes. Training can be developed to reflect the needs of your organisation or can be provided from our standard courses. Delivery is either on-site at or online. By taking a modular approach with regular assessment during the course, candidates will be confident in their role after completing training with Sterling.
Data Protection Officer Support
Once the role of a Data Protection Officer is established it is important that this person or persons are provided with adequate support to ensure that they stay ahead of changes and can call on additional external resources as required. Sterling has an established track record of working with data in multiple formats and understanding the challenges that such data brings. We are not only able to advise on the law and various regulatory requirements but can provide tools to achieve compliance. Sterling can also provide project support and absence cover.
Data Protection Officer as a Service
Sterling can supply customers with a Data Protection Officer and/or Information Security Officer as a service. This service removes the requirement for many organisations to recruit or train an employee in these specialist areas of Data Protection & Information Security. This service also benefits organisations who wish for the officer to be an employee, where Sterling can offer support to that employee whether technical, project based or absence cover etc.
Our service provides you with the resources and skills required to meet your compliance goals. Whether demanded by a regulator, industry body, law or simply just to employ best practice within your organisation, partnering with Sterling will provide you with skills, knowledge and experience required.
Our team of specialist advisers are on hand to comprehensively attend to your compliance needs, to assist your existing compliance personnel or can be used to provide an external audit and gap analysis of your existing policies, procedures and training. To ensure independence and provide a true ‘external’ audit, audits must be completed prior to Sterling being engaged in any other Data Protection / Information Security capacity.
In addition, Sterling has a range of products and services (partnering with leaders brands in Data Protection & Information Security) to provide an end to end, compliant solution to the information lifecycle within your organisation. Regardless of format and risk we can provide the most suitable solution to your needs.
We will provide you with the documentation, controls, policies, procedures and training along with the necessary maintenance to ensure that you remain up to date with changes to legislation and we will monitor implementation to ensure that all necessary steps are being taken throughout your organisation
