We follow a consultative process, where we take a balanced view of the various perspectives on data and information compliance to measure the impact of governance on the structure, people, technology and processing operations within an organisation. The outcomes of the assessment and the roadmap are used to create a series of implementation actions.

With the various resource constraints that your organisation may be facing, you may not have the capacity to drive the implementation requirements to meet the compliance deadline. The EOH Group, including iOCO Consulting, have experienced compliance resources that can drive and support the process. Let our ecosystem of technology and compliance professionals get your organisation through the process.
