Article 39 of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) requires public authorities and bodies, including schools and trusts, to appoint a DPO (data protection officer).
If you do not have the necessary data protection knowledge or expertise, you can outsource the role to independent experts.
We are therefore developing our outsourced DPO service to meet the needs of schools and trusts.
This service is still being developed, but should include:
As well as everything outlined, your data protection officer will be available to your lead contact for the following number of hours, divided into ten-minute chunks.
Led by our management team of experienced DPOs (data protection officers), lawyers, barristers, and information and cyber security experts, we provide DPO, breach, data privacy management, and data subject access request support, and associated non-reserved legal services.
We offer legal risk and compliance consultancy advice that you can trust, but without the burden of administrative duties and expenses that law firms must bear in order to carry out certain ‘reserved legal activities’, such as litigation, conveyancing and advocacy.
If you have any queries or you’re unsure of how to progress, please get in touch with our team of experts who will be able to assist with your enquiry and provide guidance options.
