Outsourced or Interim Data Protection Officer Project

Bristol Airport approached DPAS several years ago, looking for data protection officer outsourced support.

They wanted advice of projects across the airport, and support assiting the in-house team in responding to complex enquiries. DPAS has been providing DPO services since, providing support remotely, to ensure the airport maintains its consistent compliance.

You’re able to adjust the level of support to perfectly fit your organisation’s needs.
