Compliance Accelerator Programme

Expert, ongoing guidance to build and maintain compliance momentum.

A lack of direction or failure to achieve critical buy-in can cause even the best-intentioned compliance plans to founder.
Get the help you need to envision, agree-on, prioritise and implement a strategic compliance roadmap that fully leverages your Microsoft investment to further your compliance maturity in alignment with your business needs.

Our Solution

Our Compliance Accelerator Programme is designed to break down the barriers preventing your compliance strategy from advancing. It addresses not only the best use of available technology, but also the people and processes central to its effective and strategic implementation.

This is achieved through a combination of workshops, ad hoc technical advisory services, and expertly facilitated monthly panel discussions that bridge inter-departmental communication gaps, inform decision making, and fast-track your compliance progress.

Deliverables

The Compliance Accelerator Programme kicks off with an analysis of your current compliance maturity and a workshop to discuss the findings and plan a roadmap of practical of next steps.

Your dedicated governance and compliance expert will then facilitate a conversation between all the necessary stakeholders to get buy-in and agree on priorities for deployment.

This will be the first in a series of facilitated discussions (held monthly by subscription) designed to inform and expedite ongoing decision-making, remove barriers, and maintain momentum as you execute against your compliance roadmap.

Our technical experts will also remain available (for an agreed number of hours) to assist your team in translating the outcomes of these meetings into technical design documentation to drive testing and deployment of new features.

What our clients are saying about the workshops

“Cloud Essentials has been essential to BulkSMS in ensuring we advance our data protection maturity in the local and global markets. We engaged with both the Data Privacy Assessment and Advisory Workshop and the Data Classification Taxonomy Workshop, which were run professionally by Cloud Essentials. In the workshops the Cloud Essentials data privacy team did a deep dive into the complexities of our operations and BulkSMS has benefited from their expert legal, compliance and technical advice in future-proofing our data protection programme.”

"I found Cloud Essentials’ approach to dealing with the process of demystifying data classification to be very effective at taking what seemed like a daunting and complex environment and breaking it down into sensible and easily consumable parts. Their depth of knowledge in this space is impressive and as a result of our interaction with them, our own depth of knowledge has increased markedly. I would recommend them with confidence."
