Welcome to the Mode 1 Analytics GDPR information page

We’ve had numerous anxious enquiries about GDPR and what it entails so we’ve put this information page together to get you started. We are also excited to be working with Invotech - Ireland's leading provider of leisure management software to help deliver a number of GDPR workshops around the country in the coming months.  The third workshop takes place in The Athlone Springs Hotel, on the 28th of March. You can book your tickets here.

So, rather than expect you to read some boring text, we have produced this short explainer video so you can get a quick outline on the Who, What, Where, Why & When of GDPR. After the video, feel free to review the additional supporting information and get in touch via the options at the bottom of the page.

You can check out our specific GDPR services by clicking here.

To recap some of the key points from the video:

  • All organisations which process Personal Data (storing is considered processing) are subject to these regulations. It applies just as much to voluntary / non-profit organisations like sports clubs, charities etc. as it does to “for profit” organisations.
  • Infringements of GDPR can cost up €20M or 4% of turnover (whichever is greater)
  • Your organisation is going to be affected in a number of ways. You’ll need to consider how:
  • Marketing, Staff Workload, Proof of Compliance, IT systems, Security, Cloud Services, Use of children's data, Retention Periods, 3rd Party relationships etc. …are affected by the regulations
  • Customers (and staff) have stronger rights as to how you can use their data. They can withdraw consent for direct marketing and profiling as well as object to the processing of their data full stop. This especially applies when you only process based on consent, rather than on a legal basis (i.e. on the basis of your contract with the customer / staff member)

Some of the Key Changes to Data Protection Law

GDPR is not something you can simply ignore and we at Mode 1 Analytics can help you from the start. A typical example of the first steps to GDPR compliance is this:

GDPR Services

Data Protection Impact Assessments

We carry out extensive Data Protection Impact Assessments to determine your organisations readiness for GDPR by creating Data Inventories, Gap Analysis & Recommendations, just for starters. If you are introducing new technologies or systems, you will need to have specific impact assessments carried out in order to ensure compliance with GDPR.

Data Protection Officer

The GDPR allows for the Data Protection Officers duties to be fulfilled by an external specialist who has “expert” knowledge of Data Protection Law. With our Data Protection Officer as a Service, we can provide you with knowledgeable data protection specialists to guide you on all GDPR matters. This will especially suit SME’s who do not wish to commit to a full-time resource.

GDPR Training

We provide a range of tailored GDPR training workshops & materials to suit your organisation’s needs. Ultimately, it’s your employees who will determine your GDPR compliance and we can get them up to speed.

Every organisation will have different levels of need and work to perform in order to achieve compliance. So just enter your details in this form and we will contact you to arrange a noncommittal chat to discuss your specific needs. Alternatively, you can email gdpr@mode1analytics.com or contact Brian on 087 2822234.
