Acuity is the first company to take a major Law Firm through Certification to ISO 27001 (international Information Security Management Standard) including Data Privacy requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR.

Acuity Group has drawn upon extensive experience in developing compliance systems to create a comprehensive GDPR programme that significantly reduces the risk of negligence for your employees and customers by establishing administrative control. The system is comprehensive, yet simple and quick to implement.

GDPR focuses on providing both privacy and protection of personal data. Whilst the majority of the market focuses on the former via legal policy and audit of legacy data, the Acuity Compliance Management System (ACMS) ensures that both aims are addressed avoiding potential risk of negligence. We ensure that administrative control requirements of GDPR including security are met by delivering immediate sustainable change based upon an ICO approved ISO27001 information security platform.

The outcome is effective management of data privacy obligations, whilst building upon industry accepted good practice guidelines to enhance security and reduce overall risk.

For companies seeking to minimise regulatory risk, the ACMS offers a proven, comprehensive and practical methodology. Unlike other compliance systems, ACMS can integrate multiple ISO standards (e.g. ISO 27001; 22301; 9001 & 14001) and good practice guides (OHSAS 18001 and SA 8000), including the General Data Protection Regulation (EU2016/679), into a single system.

By combining multiple compliance standards into a single system, a company’s deployment is both simplified and accelerated. Compliance projects can therefore be delivered faster, more efficiently and more flexibly, thus significantly reducing risk of financial loss and reputational damage.

The ACMS provides any business with all the tools it requires to integrate its adherence to international standards, regulations and management best-practice. Professional Services are therefore focussed on adapting and implementing ACMS to satisfy specific client needs, moving them quickly towards a complete Governance Risk & Compliance standards solution.

The integrated nature of the ACMS’s addresses 3 pillars of assurance:

  • Reputation - A strategic framework to elevate brand presence
  • Market Share - Protect existing valued client relationship
  • Revenue - Growth in product & services
