General Data Protection Regulation compliance and data protection officer requirements.

UK GDPR Data Protection Officer Requirement

You may be considering your compliance to UK GDPR and Data Protection Act (2018). If you are one of the many organisations discovering through their board that they require a Data Protection Officer (DPO) (or Senior Responsible Individual (SRI)) you may be looking at your options. This may be due to the level of personal information you process or are hoping to process. Or because you need the expertise of a Data Protection consultant to ensure you are demonstrating best practice as part of your overall commitment to good security.

We have been Data Protection Consultants for decades and we can offer that experience and expertise to your organisation.


If you find you need a Data Protection Officer  (DPO) or Senior Responsible Individual (SRI), but are wondering how you can resource the role, we can help. Outsourcing the role is perfectly acceptable under UK GDPR guidelines and imagine how reassuring it would be to know you have access to top-class Data Protection consultants when you need them.

MyDataProtectionOfficer removes the cost of sick pay, holiday pay, pension etc, and provides a scalable and flexible response to the need for this role, by providing you with the skills you need, when you need them.

This might be as interim cover while you recruit or retrain your own data protection staff. It might be to cover holidays or sickness. Or perhaps you want an extra pair of eyes and hands for a temporary period of time to support your internal data protection staff. You may need support for your data protection team in dealing with the ICO or perhaps you have an ongoing investigation. Our data protection consultants can bring their many years of experience to bear to support you in the way that suits your organisation and data protection team best.

You pay for what you use, nothing more.
