Bonacia are a multi-award-winning publishing and print business, and the power behind a highly successful portfolio of brands.
Their businesses activities include publishing creative writing, creating school resources, promoting poetry, self-publishing and commercial printing.
The business maintains large amounts of data, much of which relates to children and young people. Ensuring the business was 100% compliant and ready for the GDPR was paramount in the minds of the directors.
Comprised of multiple independent business units, the businesses operating procedures needed to be aligned and a common data compliance program rolled out across the business.
Xynics helped Bonacia to “audit” their business processes, generate the documentation expected by the regulators, and implement new business processes and procedures to ensure that their operations were fully compliant with the legislation.
In addition, Bonacia chose to subscribe to our “Virtual Data Compliance Team” service, providing them with access to a Data Privacy Helpline and email address manned by Data Protection Practitioners, allowing the business to focus on its own objectives.
As part of our compliance services, we helped the business to defuse some particularly tricky data subject requests arising out of the public hype and confusion surrounding the GDPR.
Xynics had the expertise and knowledge to cut through the noise, focus on what really mattered and ensure we were 100% ready when GDPR went live.
There was a great deal of misinformation around GDPR and a lack of clarity about exactly what companies had to do to be compliant.
Always accessible and with an interest and understanding of our business and the specific challenges we face, Xynics’s insight and thoroughness gave us the reassurance we needed so that we could focus on the day-to-day running of our business and not get consumed by data concerns.
Xynics are just really helpful and handy people to know, and very calming at a time when everyone was panicking about GDPR.
They are hands-on, friendly and approachable and I have no hesitation recommending Xynics to any business looking for peace of mind around GDPR.
