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
