GDPR Data Protection

Outsourced Data Protection Officer service delivers flexible, tailored data protection support, advice and expertise to your organisation. Find out how we can help your organisation today.

While a DPO doesn't have to be a full-time role, it does require specialist data protection expertise. Having access to an experienced and knowledgeable outsourced DPO is a cost-effective solution for improving information security and compliance with data protection laws, such as the GDPR. Failing to protect personal data can not only lead to significant financial penalties from regulators (such as the UK's ICO), but also risks reputational damage to your organisation. By following tested and established best practices, an outsourced DPO helps to protect the data your organisation processes on your customers, suppliers and employees keep your organisation informed and advised about data protection and where necessary, cooperate with regulators on your behalf.

Account Management

Your DPO’s activities are monitored and managed by The DPO Centre’s experienced project delivery team, so do not consume the time or distract the attention of your management team.

Client Services

The quality of the service we deliver is also monitored by our Head of Client Services, therefore providing the oversight necessary to ensure we always deliver an appropriate, structured, co-ordinated and quality-driven service.

Model Documentation

Engaging with The DPO Centre means you benefit from access to our constantly evolving and improving central pool of processes and proven model documentation. This means your assigned DPO makes use of tried and tested documentation and spends only the time necessary to tailor them to your requirements, rather than having to research and create them from scratch.

Primary and Secondary DPOs

When delivering an outsourced DPO service, The DPO Centre assigns both a primary and secondary DPO. Both will be involved in your initial onboarding process, meaning two DPOs remain familiar with your organisation, stakeholders and data landscape. Your primary DPO takes responsibility for the role within the resource level agreed, but at no additional cost, the secondary DPO remains available to step in to cover any period of absence or to replace your primary DPO should it ever be required, therefore ensuring the delivery of a seamless service and removing the distraction, cost and inconvenience of ever needing to onboard a replacement DPO.
