Our Approach

We genuinely believe that good data protection and information security is a competitive advantage as well as a compliance obligation. Having a relationship of trust with your customers, partners and your wider supply chain is more important than ever.

At the same time, there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach to privacy and security. Good data protection and information security needs to be risk led and your approach to both should be aligned to your business strategy.

For these reasons, we start every engagement by learning as much about your organisation as we can. We’ll ask about your size, structure, management systems, working practices, culture, your strategy and your specific objectives from our engagement.

We pride ourselves in being transparent and taking a real world approach to meeting your needs. We promise open communication, relationships built on respect, honesty and a strong work ethic with no hard sell.

Client Testimonials

I’ve engaged with Evalian for the first time and have been very impressed. They have assisted us with a number of Information Security Projects from Penetration Tests through to a comprehensive GDPR compliancy assessment. Evalian have a deep understanding of the fields they work in. Commercially, Evalian are very competitive and I would highly recommend their services.

Dave Clarke, CTO, BES Utilities

Evalian’s work has always been of a high standard and I have found their employees to be very much “user friendly”.  What particularly impressed me was the speed in which they understood our business and the pragmatic solutions that were proposed, balancing compliance with our own commercial objectives and cost challenges.  Would thoroughly recommend

Gavin Partridge, General Counsel, Achilles Information Limited

We use Evalian for DPO services and have been impressed to date with the support and guidance we have received. The team are always quick to get back to us and have even responded to important emails at the weekend which is vital to us in responding quickly to suspected personal data breaches. The Evalian team are personable, knowledgeable and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them

Gareth Packham, Head of Information Security Management, Oxford Brookes University

As a start up in a highly regulated sector we needed to work with a GDPR partner that we could build a true partnership with. Evalian have fulfilled our GDPR requirements in an extremely professional and expedient manner and they supported us with a high profile meeting with our regulators, where their delivery was simply brilliant. Our lead DPO is always available to support with last minute requests for information and advice.

Ayesha Rees, Chief Executive Officer, UVA UK Limited

The team at Evalian provide a high level of knowledge and expertise which has been of great benefit to our business when managing our obligations under GDPR

Julie Andrew, Human Resources Director, Heroux Devtek UK

After careful evaluation of many suppliers, we appointed Evalian to undertake a GDPR GAP analysis and provide the relevant documents and policies in order to be GDPR compliant. They were able to come in at short notice and provide a quick turnaround at a sensible price. We were so impressed that we decided to use their DPOaaS, giving us on-going support for any GDPR advice that we need. They respond at short notice and are always friendly and helpful, they have made my life much easier and I’m able to focus more time on other matters.

Will Breeden, Head of Data, Low6

I have been impressed at how quickly Evalian has got up to speed with our business and how seamlessly they have integrated into our business and team. They act as a part of our business. What every customer really wants is a provider that works with them seamlessly as if part of their organisation. Advice and guidance have been pragmatic and it's clear to see the experience that Evalian has, both commercially and in respect of considering our customers.
