Quality compliance and privacy law services at an affordable price
SME Comply was set up by Gary O’Reilly, a privacy law solicitor with over 14 years experience in the areas of risk and compliance, serious fraud and litigation, where he was involved in some highly publicized national cases. Gary is also an experienced data protection practitioner, advising on complex data protection and privacy law issues.
Gary assists organisations on becoming GDPR/Data Protection Act 2018 compliant, and is currently retained by the largest local authority in Europe to advise on data protection, GDPR and Freedom of Information (FOI) matters. As you can imagine, data protection issues in a local authority of this size involve an understanding of every aspect of data protection. Gary has a wealth of experience in data protection issues impacting on procurement, contracts, data sharing/processing agreements, DPIA's, children's data, education, health and social care, and data subjects rights (including subject access requests).
Gary has also drafted privacy policies, guidance notes, and data protection policies for many employers, including one employer with over 10,000 employees!
The introduction of the GDPR on 25 May 2018 gives supervising authorities powers to issue fines of up to €20,000,000. Companies must comply from day one and that’s where we come in. Gary identified a shortage of quality data protection compliance services available to SME’s at an affordable price. With the products available on our website and Gary's consultancy service, we hope to redress this shortage!
