Redaction services testimonial

Museum Wales approached DPAS, looking for Subject Access Redaction support.

DPAS carried out the conversion and redaction for Museum Wales ensuring they were provided with full explanations regarding the decisions made when choosing which data to redact.


When faced with a complex Subject Access Request we went out to the market to look for a provider that had the knowledge and experience to complete the data conversion and redaction on our behalf.

We were impressed with the team at DPAS from the offset and entrusted them to deliver the required redacted documents within the legal timeframes and had every confidence in their advice. We wouldn’t hesitate using the team at DPAS again

By outsourcing your subject access request redaction to DPAS you can be confident that your response is compliant with data protection law, and in line with best practice.

DPAS can scale our services according to your needs. Whether you have a sudden surge in SAR requests or require ongoing support, we can adjust the resources accordingly, providing you with flexibility and ensuring prompt response times.

Our inhouse team are experts in their field, and so are able to work at an efficient pace in order to meet demanding deadlines. Resulting in a substantial increase in turn around time.

Outsourcing SAR redaction to DPAS can help mitigate potential bias or conflict of interest that may arise if the redaction process is handled internally. As an external consultancy, DPAS can maintain objectivity and impartiality during the redaction process.

If you do not have in-house resources that are dedicated to subject access requests, then allocating the time and resources to complete complex requests can be burdensome, and have a financial impact on other areas of the business. Outsourcing to DPAS allows you to focus on primary business, whilst being confident that the request is appropriately handled.

DPAS understands that every request is different, and should be considered on a case-by-case process. Therefore, we offer a flexible service that can be tailored to your organisation’s specific needs. Our friendly approach allows for open communication, allowing us to be proactive in finding the best solution for you.

Easy to understand data privacy and information security services that are always accessable, consistenty pragmatic and continually exceeding expectations.

Keeping up to date with changes in data protection regulations, and best practices, can often be challenging for organisations. By outsourcing to an expert consultancy like us, organisations can access data protection professionals and lawyers who stay current with the latest developments, case law, and have the subject matter expertise to support your organisation. 

Outsourcing allows your organisation to scale up requirements as needed, without the commitment of a full-time, or part-time, employee. We have the capacity and capability to hit the ground running and support your organisation whenever you need it, so you can focus on your core business activities — whilst we ensure that your SAR requirements are being met. 

We have a wealth of experience delivering SAR redaction services, to public, private, and third sectors. We understand that each organisation faces its own challenges, and always provide tailored solutions to meet your specific requirements.

We are extremely competitive, and our work consistently exceeds our customers’ expectations. Instead of hiring and maintaining an in-house team or seeking external legal advice, we’ll work closely with you to develop a customised plan that meets your specific needs, and budget.

We work with you to identify any potential threats and take steps to mitigate them, reducing the risk of reputational damage and compliance fines. With our up-to-date knowledge on current issues facing data protection and information security we can take proactive measures to safeguard your data.
