Data & Privacy - Privacy Transformation

DPO As A Service

Legal experts specializing in cybersecurity will monitor the compliance level of your organization, providing valuable information and advice, and increasing the level of information security.

Challenges

We take a risk-based approach, understand the law and help your organisation prioritise focus areas.

Organisations can often find regulatory compliance with data protection to be a daunting and confusing task, as the privacy landscape is still new and ever changing. Depending on your business and organisation, your need for everyday consultation with a privacy expert may vary. However, regardless of the size of the company and the complexity of the data processing, we still see the same common challenges for many companies, being:

  • Incorrect application of regulatory frameworks, leading to increased risks.

  • A lack of appropriate training for employees within the organisation.

  • Insufficient monitoring regimes and controls within the organisation.

  • Insufficient consideration of privacy in the development of new processes or systems, and hence risks are magnified.

Our approach

Our DPO As A Service offering injects privacy expertise into your business, to ensure that regulatory compliance is achieved and data is appropriately handled.

The needs of data protection are varied, so too are our DPO as a Service offerings. Whether you need a DPO, as dictated for certain organisations as set out by the GDPR, or simply an additional privacy specialist as support for your business, our approach ensures that your organisation adheres to the appropriate data privacy and IT security expectations.
