data consultancyHow compliant is your business? General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes live in May 2018 AND IT WILL CHANGE THE FACE OF THE DATA INDUSTRY ACROSS EUROPE. And as for the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003 (PECR) – this has been law since 2003 but most companies have not been compliant, with regards to email and telephone communications. Ignore PECR at your peril! GDPR Auditing makes no distinction between B2C personal data and B2B personal data. It’s all personal. So that would include work email address, work direct dial number, a person’s name, job title and workplace postal address.

DMAKudos are a thought-leader in the GDPR& PECR compliance space. We provide GDPR & PECR consultancy as well as our Consent Management solution called The Preference Centre. This solution has been selected by Regulators to manage the Fundraising Preference Service for the Charity sector. Kudos are also one of the first agencies to pass the Direct Marketing Association’s (DMA) list broker compliance audit. We vet our suppliers and run a comprehensive Due Diligence audit prior to data on-boarding to confirm that data supplied is compliant. We can provide advice as well as ensuring your data is suitable AND compliant!

Kudos believe that for third party data providers and users alike, more value must be placed on quality over quantity. Data is a valuable asset, but only with the consent to use it. In the face of PECR, tighter UK regulation and the impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the days of holding bulk records with dubious consent are over. Data is an asset, but it also presents a business risk. The focus must now be on accurate and permissioned data, which will become a premium commodity in and of itself.



Let Kudos help you ensure compliance in preparation for GDPR & PECR. Our expert consultants will help you identify and map your data, it’s sources, location and compliance. We can map workflow processes and complete a landscape audit which will identify areas of non-compliance. We will make recommendations. We will provide best-practice expertise.

So contact us today and join our growing number of clients who “do consent well”, who are the trusted brands of the future, who have maximised positive consent.
