“With an expanding business to handle, I knew that it would benefit from a GDPR compliance review but I was too busy undertake it myself.

He had sufficient information from me to create all the required compliance documents for the business and made a number of recommendations for changes to my business processes.

Peter is familiar with small businesses and I consider that his GDPR and Cyber Security support services, together with his commercial approach would add significant value to business owners”
