Responding to Data Subject Right Requests
One of the most effective ways of demonstrating to your clients and stakeholders how well personal data is to develop and certify your personal information management system to BS 10012:2017.

What People Say About us
We engaged with URM to help us define and implement our UK Data Protection and Data Privacy framework and supporting processes for our specialist lending operation.
From the outset they took the time to understand us and demonstrated an understanding of our business model and a great depth of technical knowledge.
They were commercial in their approach to this complex area and were able to cut through the jargon, explain issues clearly and concisely and implement a working model to suit our business.
They helped us design and implement our framework within budget and on time, no small feat given the logistics of collaborating with our Australian colleagues. We would be happy to work with them again and engage across their wider business offering.
