S.H.I.E.L.D is a voluntary Consumer Protection and Business Support Program & Web Portal run by UK Paralegal Law firm Transition Law, aimed at small and medium sized businesses and designed to promote good data protection practices.
Further to assessment and certification, an accredited S.H.I.E.L.D holder and business can demonstrate they are GDPR compliant, which itself is a compulsory legal state to achieve. S.H.I.E.L.D membership then assists businesses to stay on the right side of the law, access valuable member benefits and take advantage of their compliant status.
S.H.I.E.L.D holders have FREE access to a legal advice helpline for any queries or issues with their GDPR compliancy. Qualified advisors are on-hand during office hours and always happy to help.
Compliant marketing advice is available to all members from the program management team. Plan your marketing campaign using the very latest information about GDPR.
As part of GDPR compliance, a business must confirm the status of businesses they work with (e.g. suppliers). Members can request assistance with this from the S.H.I.E.L.D helpline.
