Some information and cyber security frameworks require organisations to actively maintain communication and engagement with industry bodies and relevant service providers as part of their information security programme. This subscription service provides evidence of initial engagement with GRCI Law as a provider of CIR services to help satisfy these requirements.
When you subscribe to the service, you will be provided with a letter of engagement demonstrating your initial engagement with GRCI Law’s Cyber Incident Response services. In the event of a cyber security incident, you can contact our CIR team using the email address and/or telephone number provided to enquire about the purchase of further services that will help you respond to the incident.
If you would like to know more about our CIR services, contact us on +44 (0)333 900 5555 to discuss how we can help you.
This service is provided in English during UK business hours.

John Potts – Operations Director
John is a data protection professional who has been working in data privacy for more than 12 years. As Operations Director for GRCI Law, he oversees service delivery and manages the GRCI Law consultant team. He set up our specialist data breach and DSAR (data subject access request) services and developed our Cyber Incident Response Service. He is also the DPO (data protection officer) for a number of GRCI Law’s key clients. Before joining GRCI Law, John was Head of Information Rights and Head of Information Law and Security with the UK Metropolitan Police Service. Both roles involved regular contact with the UK regulator, the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office). He has worked on several high-profile cases regarding information access rights.
Led by our team of experienced DPOs, lawyers, barristers, and information and cyber security experts, we provide DPO, data privacy management, DSAR and data breach support, as well as associated non-reserved legal services. We offer legal, risk and compliance consultancy advice that you can trust, but without the burden of administrative duties and expenses that law firms must bear in order to carry out certain ‘reserved legal activities’ such as litigation, conveyancing and advocacy.
