We at AVLA are committed to make life easy for the business community by creating and delivering practical solutions across data protection, data security or data privacy.
Born out of years of working with and providing expert advice on data protection laws - the name AVLA was inspired by a district called Alva which is located in St. Ann, Jamaica en-route to the birth and burial place of the Reggae icon Bob Marley.
We are a boutique consultancy and pride ourselves in taking a pragmatic approach to complex situations. Our size and business model provides us with a competitive edge, enabling us to develop personalised solutions to meet the needs of individual customers.
With our experience and knowledge of Jamaican culture we are well placed to support the local marketplace to both navigate the complexities of the Data Protection Act and take advantage of the burgeoning Jamaican digital economy. .

Our technical expertise and hands-on experience across four legal jurisdictions allows us to take an agile approach to different issues by drawing on 15 over years’ experience of United Kingdom and European Union data protection laws, including the GDPR.
Our credentials are further reinforced by our extensive experience in providing advice and training to organisations across the private sector, local government, healthcare and the education sector.
With our proven track record of designing, delivering and assessing university accredited courses for employees across the public and private sectors, we have a unique advantage of engaging with organisations to develop their workforce at all levels.
