Ensure Compliance
with an
Outsourced DPO

Are you struggling to recruit a Data Protection Officer or Data Protection Consultant, or do you need additional support because your DPO has too much work, or has left the organisation? We understand that not every organisation has the resources or expertise to maintain an in-house DPO. That’s where we come in. We offer outsourcing services to act as your DPO or provide an interim solution on a permanent or temporary basis.

Outsourcing your Data Protection Officer can be a cost-effective and efficient way to ensure that your organisation is complying with data protection regulations while allowing you to focus on your core business activities. We can be your data protection helping hand and provide legal advice when your inhouse data protection lead needs additional support.

Our team of experienced professionals will work closely with you to understand your specific data protection needs and help you develop a comprehensive strategy to ensure compliance with EU GDPR, UK GDPR, Data Protection Act, and other relevant regulations. Our services start from as little as £500 per month. Get in touch with us today to see if we are a right fit for your organisation.

Benefits

Hiring a full-time DPO can be expensive, especially for smaller businesses that may not have the resources to support a full-time staff member. By outsourcing your DPO, it can result in significant cost savings for your organisation.

When you outsource your DPO, you gain access to a team of expert data protection consultants who have specialised knowledge and experience in data protection. This can help ensure that your organisation is complying with all relevant data protection regulations and best practices, and aid in developing staff internally.

Outsourcing your DPO provides you with greater flexibility to scale up, or down, as needed. You can adjust the level of support you receive based on your organisation’s needs, which can be especially valuable during times of growth or change.

Data protection regulations are constantly changing and evolving. When you outsource your DPO, you can rely on the expertise of your service provider to stay up-to-date on the latest regulations and ensure that your organisation is compliant.

Outsourcing your DPO allows you to focus on your core business activities, whilst leaving the management of data protection to the experts. This can help improve overall efficiency and productivity within your organisation.

By outsourcing, you are assured that your DPO will not be subject to internal conflicting decision-making, and will balance the rights of the data subject with the business objectives in an independent manner.
