Specialist partners for your business
For many organisations, data protection and information security is a distraction from their core business interests.
We can provide you with experienced data protection officers (DPO), chief information security officers (CISO), or trusted advisors to support your business and teams.
We can provide the specialists you need to help mitigate those risks, using a highly cost effective, on-demand model, designed around your business needs.

Recruiting an in-house Data Protection Officer can be difficult and inefficient.
Legally, the DPO must be independent of your personal data processing and experts in data protection.
The DPO also needs to perform a proactive auditor role, helping the business to understand what they and can't do, and finding alternative solutions to deliver business requirements in a legal manner.
Financially, once core data protection controls are embedded and the full business engaged, the DPO role can become much lighter, but work loads will often fluctuate as specialist knowledge is needed for assurance, data subject requests and incidents.
GDPR specifically states that the DPO role can be performed internally or by a third party outsourced DPO provider.
Our Outsourced Virtual DPO services will provide you a named specialist DPO partner, who will work closely with you and your business, while helping you to align with you legal obligations.
Engagement levels can be varied, based on business requirements and specific data proction activities performed over the year.
For more information about the DPO role and tasks, read our DPO Obligations report.

Unlike the DPO role, the CISO does not need to be independent of processing, however they must be able to clearly communicate with business leaders, whilst also being engaged deeply in the operational and technical processing of the company, and in your security risks and control frameworks, which are often highly technical in nature.
We will provide a named senior information security specialist, to partner with your business and to help keep your confidential information secure.

If you don't need a DPO or CISO, but do need general advice, we can help.
We will build an engagement model based on your needs.
You may just need a single engagement, to recommend core governance, technical and operational controls.
You may need regular "on-demand" retainer support each month, so that we're ready to answer any questions your teams have, to help with data subject requests or breaches.
We will provide partnership services, to support your business with specialist advice, when you need it.
