Black Penny Consulting was born out of a passion for customer excellence. We have real drive and determination to see our customers embrace their obligations under data privacy legislation. This includes developing best practice operating models that make them truly accountable whilst maintaining their operational efficiencies. Our business values are at the heart of every client engagement we undertake.

Black Penny Consulting

his is the most significant development in data protection that Europe, possibly the world, has seen over the past twenty years. The GDPR and by default, the Data Protection Act 2018 (Data Protection Legislation) are designed to better take into account modern technologies, the way we work with them today and how we are likely to work with them in the future. In addition, there is a much greater emphasis on accountability following a widely held belief that business had not taken data protection seriously enough previously. As a consequence, penalties are considerably harsher and the compliance requirements are intended to spread a far wider net to include small and medium businesses.

The consequence of Brexit is that the UK will fully detach from the EU and the direct application of the GDPR. However, it is expected that the DPA 2018 will be adapted to embrace the new arrangement with the EU and be known as ‘the UK GDPR’.

How do Black Penny help you get ready?
As with every engagement that Black Penny Consulting complete it starts with the Organisation. By firmly understanding the structure, operating model and mission of the organisation we can deliver advisory services that are tailored and appropriate.

Black Penny have developed a Data Protection Alignment Framework which assesses an organisation against a best practice operating model with regards to data management. This framework has been developed to address the 4 core pillars that underpin Data Protection legislation, across ‘People’, ‘Process’, ‘Technology’ and ‘Policy’.
