Success Stories

Nationwide Hire

Nationwide Hire supplies plant, equipment and services to the construction sector and other areas such as retail and events management. They assist project managers by taking responsibility for difficult supply chain and logistics challenges.

The client needed a consultant to complete a quick but comprehensive GDPR gap analysis followed by a proposal for a broader ISO 27001 certification project. For this assignment, QFactorial were pleased to partner with local information security experts, RightCue Assurance, who are themselves certified to ISO 27001 and IASME Gold.

We were pleased to be able to set up the project, complete the work and deliver the report within one calendar month to meet the client’s strict deadline. The report included clear and prioritised recommendations with guidance and templates for some key aspects, including data flow mapping, IT risk assessment, data processing agreements, privacy statements, legal responsibilities, general information security, data protection, administrative controls and incident management.

It always feels a bit risky working with a new partner for the first time. We needn’t have worried. Yogesh, our RightCue consultant, was a perfect fit, combining deep expertise with a pragmatic approach with which he quickly understood gained the client’s confidence.

The Outcome

Like so many of our projects, this assignment provided opportunities for adding client value before and beyond the final deliverable. Our collaborative approach ensured maximum client benefit from the conversations and consultations on the road to the final gap analysis. This is particularly important when dealing with a new and high-profile subject like GDPR and the UK Data Protection Act 2018. 

Q! Feedback

The client was pleased with the quality, timeliness and manner of execution of the work, not just the succinct and professionally presented report, but also the advice and guidance provided along the way, addressing many questions and concerns with the new legislation.
