    Implementing privacy by design

ROBUS – Data Governance

Harness the power and stability of the latest technology to enable your business to document data protection, risk and governance activities in one place.

Demonstrating compliance with data protection legislation is a significant challenge for businesses today. Our specialist Advisory Practice have designed and built ROBUS, a data governance tool, to help ensure compliance across your organisation.

A siloed and excel spreadsheet based approach to data privacy is highly inefficient

Our combination of technical skills and extensive regulatory knowledge makes it possible for you to ensure consistent, reliable and continuous adherence to legal requirements.

With instant oversight for the Board, you can track reviews and approval of data processing activities, assets and third party processors in real time, with built-in accountability and audit history. ROBUS enables efficient and effective management of data breaches and subject access requests.

Cost effective insight, efficiency, flexibility and differentiation

ROBUS provides a comprehensive approach to data protection:

  • Providing complete insight into data risk and compliance

Performance indicators across fragmented control environments are aggregated to deliver a common, organisation-wide view; unifying management of strategic, financial, operational and compliance related data risks.
