Outsourced DPO Services

Our award-winning outsourced DPO service is a fully comprehensive solution that delivers tailored support, expertise, and guidance to your organisation.

With our team at your disposal, you can ensure that your obligations and responsibilities are fulfilled in the complex world of data protection.

DPO as a Service

Many small and medium sized organisations choose to outsource their Data Protection Officer because they often find it challenging to meet their DPO responsibilities.  Like any specialist field, it requires deep technical knowledge and beyond that, a comprehensive understanding of how the regulation applies to everyday business.

Outsourcing your Data Protection Officer will help your business to meet its compliance obligations in a cost-effective and efficient manner, and it will also guarantee the DPO is independent, having no conflict of interest with the wider business.

Who needs a DPO?

Appointing a DPO is mandatory for all public authorities and many private organisations under the GDPR and DPA 2018. Where appointment is not mandatory it is considered good practice and an excellent way to proactively demonstrate compliance. 

The DPO’s full responsibilities can be challenging to wrap your head around, making it difficult to train your current employees on the proper processes. Given the breadth of knowledge needed for data processing, security operations, and familiarity with the legal aspects of the GDPR, you can save yourself time and money by using our DPO as a service option.

Award-winning outsourced DPO services

We take a truly innovative approach to data protection, combining expert consultation and advanced in-house technology to deliver an award-winning DPO service. We work with companies in the UK and around the globe, helping to reduce the human, financial and technological burden that is usually required to manage data protection obligations.

Benefits of our DPO service include:

  • Full compliance with data protection laws such as GDPR
  • Improved information security and protection of personal data 
  • Reduced risk of penalties, fines or reputational damage as a result of non-compliance
  • Experienced and knowledgeable team working alongside your organisation 
  • Ongoing support and guidance on regulation compliance
  • Cost-effective time-saving solution

How DPO as a service works

Every organisation finds itself on a different step of the compliance ladder, so we never lead with a one-size-fits-all approach. 

When you come to us for outsourced DPO services, each engagement begins with us getting to know you in depth. We’ll conduct a gap analysis to benchmark your compliance against the requirements of the EU GDPR, the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018 (and other relevant standards) and, in turn, understand the maturity of your compliance activities.  

The result of our work together completing the gap analysis, will form the foundation of your compliance pathway – the route from where you are now to a robust and defensible compliance position.

During this early phase, we will also register as your Data Protection Officer (DPO) with the relevant Supervisory Authority (for the UK, the Information Commissioner’s Office, ICO).

We take great pride in our award-winning approach, providing you with expert DPOs powered by our very own advanced technology. A service shaped precisely to your needs.
