We operate in a highly regulated environment and

Data Protection is a key element of our daily work.

We are proud to maintain the standards for Membership of SHIELD and have taken advantage of the free legal advice which is available as a SHIELD Member benefit.


We have found the advice to be timely, accurate and informed. It is a comfort to be able to pick the phone up to a Lawyer when there is a query without having to

worry about the cost.

As a S.H.I.E.L.D. Holder we use our Membership to demonstrate

to existing and prospective residents and our professional regulators that we

will safely store and protect Personal Data in accordance with the Law.

The Member benefits allow us to access immediate answers to various the regulatory and procedural questions which arise from time to time. It is reassuring to know the Member Benefits and the free telephone helpline is supporting our Organisation.

Being an initiative created by and for local businesses,

it is important that Lichfield Business Improvement District

encourages a culture of compliance within its own organisation and

leads the way for the local businesses we support.

Receiving free updates as part of our S.H.I.E.L.D. Membership has

allowed us to keep up with the various changes in the legislation and the Regulators practices as GDPR has developed. We are grateful to the

team at S.H.I.E.L.D. for their continuing support enthusiasm and skill.

Working as a web design professional, I am often

engaged by clients who do not understand the legal

implications of Data Protection compliance.


Being a SHIELD holder allows me to guide them to get free legal advice on the subject, which means I know their Website policies will be compliant and they will be getting the very latest legal information without any cost. It’s a win win situation and allows me to concentrate on my job of building the client’s website.

Data Protection is increasingly important in the

electronics world. S.H.I.E.L.D. Membership has allowed us

to demonstrate our compliance to various customers and prospects.

In addition, the free Member benefits have been very useful, especially in learning how to assess our suppliers and understanding the responsibilities we have to them and vice versa. We have just renewed our membership for another year. Membership has proved to be both free and priceless.
