GDPR Data Protection Officer Requirement

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in force (along with the UK’s Data Protection Act 2018) and you may be considering your compliance. If you are one of the many organisations discovering they require a Data Protection Officer (DPO) for the first time, you may be looking at your options. This may be that due to the level of personal information you process or are hoping to process. Or because you need the expertise of a Data Protection specialist to ensure you are demonstrating best practice as part of your overall commitment to good security.

We have been Data Protection Practitioners for over fifteen years and although we fully accept that the incoming penalties for data breaches are indeed about to become greater, we genuinely think it is within the power of all businesses to become GDPR compliant and be enhanced by high quality Data Protection practices.


If you find you need a DPO, but are wondering how you can resource the role, we can help. Outsourcing the role is perfectly acceptable under GDPR guidelines and imagine how reassuring it would be to know you have access to top class Data Protection Practitioners 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. That is all you pay for.

If you are interested in our outsourced Data Protection service, you can download the MyDataProtectionOfficer leaflet here.

If you are not sure if you need a DPO then ask about our GDPR Compliance Review or download the leaflet here.
