Gydeline

When you just need a helping hand

We have services that can get you on top of the compliance mountain

Tailored to your needs

Sometimes you just don’t have the capacity or skills to do what is needed to make and keep your organisation compliant.  We believe that compliance is something that needs to be woven into the culture of an organisation and, to that end, we have structured our services to support you in learning, adopting and embracing new ways of working.

Every business is different; some need lighter advisory help and others want a full support package.  We have designed a selection of services which can be tailored to provide the support you need, all underpinned by our compliance dashboard so you can see exactly where your company is on its journey.

We know that you need to control costs, so we have sought to be as open as possible on our pricing whilst providing a range of options based around 3 levels of support: Advisory, Supporting and Greater Depth; you can pick an choose from the levels to suit your requirements.  We have also included a starter bundle to make getting started easier along with a Data Protection Officer service for those that need one.

Our Approach

To provide you with the greatest flexibility in picking the help you need, we’ve broken our services in to three levels:

Gyding Hand Starter Pack: Because flexibility and choice can still be difficult to fathom, we have put together a basic package of services to just get you going.  This is a fixed price with clear deliverables to get you on the road to compliance.

Advisory: Usually half a day for each aspect of compliance, we provide a contact to answer your questions as you work through your own compliance plan.  This would suit the organisation that has the capacity to handle the workload, but needs help understanding what is needed
Supporting: This level of support generally starts at one day per aspect of compliance.  We would take a more involved role in the activity, providing training, advice and bolster your capacity.  This provides for those that need more than pure advice with some hands-on resource.
Greater Depth: With this type of support you get a skilled resource who can work with your team to do what is necessary to move you towards compliance.  If your organisation is lacking the available resources to get through the workload, this is for you.
