- Data security breach preparedness and response
- Cross-border data transfers (both intra-group and with third parties)
- Data processing and data transfer agreements including Privacy Shield certification
- Privacy-related claims and disputes
GDPR Programme Validation
Convergent can perform a GDPR compliance assessment and gap analysis on specific departments, individual offices, or across your entire operation. We provide you with a comprehensive report of its findings tailored specifically to your organisation, which can be shared with third parties to provide GDPR program evidence.
Vendor Risk Management
Convergent can efficiently conduct vendor risk assessments both during the initial vendor onboarding phase as well as re-audit existing vendors on a risk-based schedule. We can send privacy and security assessment questionnaires directly to vendors and generate a central record of all your vendors, contracts and data transfers.
Data Breach Notification
Our breach management service supports you in ensuring you have recognised, considered and addressed your critical legal obligations under GDPR by assisting in the preparation of notifications, creating and implementing any required remediation items as well as training your staff to minimise the opportunity for future events.
