Client testimonials – practical examples of Data Protection resources & skills we can also provide to you



“Cygnus Consulting was an invaluable asset to us in preparing for the GDPR and seeing us through the first year after its introduction. After initially performing an in-depth data protection audit, Fintan Swanton subsequently became our DPO, providing a great deal of advice, training, and expert knowledge. Cygnus was always available to respond to data protection questions and guide on making decisions around data protection. The NCRI are very happy to recommend Cygnus Consulting.”

Prof. Kerri Clough, Director, National Cancer Registry Ireland.


“As a United States based company we came to EU Data Privacy as a novice, but with the consultancy, training, and DPO services of Cygnus Consulting we feel we are ahead of the game.  In my twenty years as an in house counsel managing professional services, Fintan Swanton’s care, expertise and practical advice is clearly second to none.  He works tirelessly to make sure that his clients are well served in a most efficient and cost effective manner.”

Juliet Stone, Senior Corporate Counsel,



“We engaged Cygnus Consulting initially in preparation for the GDPR.  Its data protection audit recommendations helped us to create a strong data protection regime, ensuring that all aspects of the new regulations were implemented in the organisation.  We were subsequently audited by the Data Protection Commission. Its findings were very favourable, proving the value of the work Fintan Swanton did with us.  We were satisfied with the results from both cost and time perspectives, and have engaged Cygnus again to conduct our annual data protection audit.”

Jean Walton, Data Protection Officer, Turas Nua Ltd.

“Cygnus Consulting have provided expert training and consultancy to us, supporting and guiding us through the development of a robust Data Protection Policy. Fintan Swanton’s expertise has made him our go to person on all matters of Data Protection. He’s a ‘safe pair of hands’!”

Paula Carney, CEO, Creditinfo Limited, Dublin.


“Cygnus Consulting delivers on time and in budget. We engaged Cygnus Consulting to provide training and conduct a full data protection audit.

The training was in-depth and expert. The audit and subsequent report raised awareness across the business, and through a detailed set of recommendations based on current and future data protection regulation has provided a clear path to data protection compliance.

I rarely make recommendations, but I strongly recommend Cygnus Consulting.”

Mike Tuohy, CIO, iCONX Solutions, Dublin.
