DPO Service (Data protection Officer)

Data Protection Officer service for companies and businesses. Advice and assistance. Training. Outsource your DPO requirement and buy in the service that you need, saving you having to take someone on the payroll or burden a senior staff member, taking them away from other duties. Talk to us and we can build around you the service that you require.

Do you need a Data Protection Officer? Does that mean you have to employ someone for that role or does someone in the senior team have to take on this responsibility? Not necessarily. We are able to offer a Data Protection Officer Service. This can save you having to add someone to the payroll or take them away from their other duties.

You may anyway not need someone to be available for this 100% of their working day. So you can buy what you need from us, be it a day a week, or a day a month and/or a review and spot check policies and their implementation.

You will have a named, dedicated, qualified expert as your DPO. Most of the work will be done remotely, but on-site time can be arranged. This person will help to keep you compliant, conduct data protection audits, liaise with the ICO and data subjects on your behalf as well as assisting and advising on specific tasks which will inevitably come your way, such as Data Protection Impact Assessments, Data Subject Access Requests, staff training (a legal requirement) etc.

Our normal consulting charges are £200/hr + VAT. However, contact us to talk through what you need and we can bespoke and quote accordingly.

The duties, expertise and responsibilities of a DPO are significant and not to be underestimated – see here for full details or you can download a full overview document from the EU here

Some organisations are required by law to appoint a DPO; for example, those processing large volumes of special categories of data as defined under Article 9 of the GDPR. The data types  are – health data, biometric data for the purpose of identification, genetic data, data concerning racial or ethnic origin, trade union membership, sexual orientation or sex life, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs. This will include many healthcare businesses, most GP practices as well as other sectors. However, the ICO recommend that you at least consider appointing a DPO in any case if you process personal data (which virtually all businesses do) and to document your rationale if you choose not to. Often it is seen as good practice to appoint a DPO in order to demonstrate to your customers and staff that you take data protection seriously.

“Nick has supported us through a period of rapid growth in clients, people, locations, products and systems.  As for so many firms, data is at the heart of our legal work and we cannot  afford to cavalier about compliance or security. He has guided us with the necessary expertise but it is his real life input that has enabled us to address data priorities in a pragmatic and effective manner. His guidance has enabled us to achieve Cyber Essentials and IASME certification as well as to navigate some of the conflicting dynamics between competing data rights. He is also a joy to work with and I recommend him wholeheartedly. “

Johnny Nichols, COO Keller Lenkner UK Ltd

“I was pleased and impressed by the work done by HCL in turning around within 3 working days our request for a review of our Privacy and Data Protection Policy. We wanted to ensure that it was up to date after Brexit and in general for it to be reviewed for compliance. HCL had their Data Protection Officer review it and he made suggestions which were helpfully done as tracked changes.
HCL where extremely knowledgeable and we are grateful to them for their help to create a robust policy for our organisation. Thank you HCL”
