How Frank can help...

Whether you need a single day's GDPR training or ongoing support for an information governance, Frank can provide flexible support.

Staff training

From general awareness sessions to deep-dive workshops, Frank has a knack for making potentially dry information governance topics engaging and relevant.

Training topics include:

  • GDPR and data protection,

  • Freedom of Information/EIR, 

  • records management,

  • information security

GDPR compliance

The General Data Protection Regulation can seem like a maze. Frank can help you cut through that with support ranging from a brief issue-finding workshop to a full compliance assessment and improvement plan. Or we can help with specific tasks such as drafting Privacy Notices or Article 30 documentation.

Records management

Practical support including:

  • Records management policy

  • Retention schedule development

  • Information Asset Register

  • Business Classification Scheme 

  • Public Records (Scotland) Act 2011 compliance

  • Document naming and versioning guidance

  • EDRM implementation

SIRO training

The role of Senior Information Risk Owner is diverse and can be daunting. Frank has trained SIROs across NHS Scotland and for Scottish local authorities.

He can provide workshops or one-to-one coaching for new or existing SIROs to build their confidence in the role.

Freedom of Information 

Applying his knowledge of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and real-life experience as an FOI officer, Frank can assist with policy and procedure development, staff training, internal review support or advice on specific challenging requests.

DPO as a service

Under GDPR every public authority must appoint a Data Protection Officer who must be expert, autonomous and free from conflict of interest. This can be expensive and difficult to achieve in-house for a small authority but the role can be contracted-out. Frank has the skills and experience to fulfil the role.
