Astrid Data Protection
Making GDPR compliance simple for small businesses | All the tools and guidance you need in one place
We are Astrid - a small team of like-minded professionals who have pooled our expertise and experience to provide a secure online platform to help SMEs protect the personal data they hold and meet GDPR requirements.
We recognise that most SMEs want to do what’s right but lack the expertise and resources to confidently address GDPR compliance. We help you answer yes to the following questions:
- Would my business confidently deal with a subject access request or data breach?
- Would my business stand up to scrutiny if someone complained to the ICO?
- Could my business provide evidence of GDPR compliance if asked by a client or in a tender?
Developed with small businesses in mind, our platform shows you what you need to do and gives you all the support you need to become and remain compliant. Every stage of the process is broken into practical, manageable steps. Our downloadable tools include data mapping and risk assessment forms, privacy statement and data protection policy templates, with each tool accompanied by clear information and guidance. Our training suite includes a series of videos to ensure your staff understand their responsibilities and, with unique access for every employee, records who has completed their training. We provide a log for any data breaches you experience and a repository to store your data protection documentation, ensuring this is available if you need to evidence the steps you have taken. And on completion of activities we give you a certificate so you can demonstrate that you value and protect the personal data you hold and respect data protection laws.
We are genuinely committed to helping SMEs protect personal data and provide a practical and affordable way to comply with GDPR.
