GDPR support for DPOs

GDPR support for DPOs

A flexible support service for DPOs (data protection officers) who need guidance on GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliance issues but do not feel confident on all aspects of the Regulation. Much of the GDPR’s requirements are very complex, and many experienced DPOs will have weaker areas where they would benefit from expert advice to stay on the right track.

GDPR support for DPOs

DPOs may find meeting their GDPR responsibilities challenging, particularly if they are new to the role or fulfilling it part-time.

Our DPO support service is a flexible and cost-effective solution for existing DPOs who need additional resources. Serviced by our experienced team of data protection legal experts, we’ll be on hand to offer advice and assistance on any of the areas below.

Simply prepay for a set number of hours and our DPO expertise will be available whenever you need it, via whatever combination of email, live chat, telephone and WebEx that works for you.

DPO as a Service

Our team of experienced DPOs will be on hand to:

About us

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.


GRCI Law has completed the NHS Data Security and Protection (DSP) Toolkit online self-assessment tool which allows organisations to measure their performance against the National Data Guardian’s 10 data security standards, providing the assurance (to all NHS clients) that we are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly. If you process NHS patient data in any capacity, GRCI Law is able to assist you with all your data privacy requirements.

If you need assistance to become compliant with the DSP Toolkit, our sister company IT Governance Ltd offers several options to help you complete this exacting requirement.
