On top of an already demanding workload, we had a new system integration, a merger to form a new Trust, and the impact of Covid to deal with. DPAS really helped to take the pressure off by helping with complex SARs. Having no idea how many SARs you may receive, having the ability to flex by using additional resources can be quite useful. It is really helpful, having someone that can take the time out to review requests.





When you enlist DPAS’s support, you gain access to a team of experts 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. 

By using DPAS’s SAR Assurance service, you can streamline your SAR processes and improve efficiency. By DPAS providing assurance, and remedial advice, you will create more time for your team to develop, and improve your inhouse procedures.

Using our SAR Assurance services provides you with the 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.

Subject Access Requests are a complex and sometimes daunting area of data protection. By outsourcing the assurance process to DPAS you can have confidence that the responses you are providing are compliant, and in line with best practice.


Data protection regulations are constantly changing and evolving. Choosing DPAS means 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.

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 data protection requirements are being met. 

We have a wealth of experience delivering data protection and information security projects and training, 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.
