Risk Crew’s Outsourced DPO Services

This popular on-demand service is designed to ensure that your business gets the exact amount of resources it needs to meet data protection laws.  Our consultants fully embrace your organisational culture and adopt a proactive stance towards meeting your needs, rather than merely reacting to them.

  • Gap Analysis: Our experienced consultants conduct a thorough assessment of your current data protection practices, policies, and procedures. This analysis helps identify any gaps or areas of non-compliance with the regulation.
  • Policy Drafting and Review: We assist in developing and reviewing data protection policies tailored to your organisation’s specific needs. These policies ensure that your data protection practices align with legal requirements and industry best practices.
  • Data Mapping and Information Asset Register: Our consultants help you understand and document the flow of personal data within your systems through data flow mapping exercises. We assist in creating an Information Asset Register, which provides an inventory of the personal data your organisation processes and helps in managing data protection risks.
  • Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs): We conduct DPIAs to assess the impact of your data processing activities on individual privacy. This assessment identifies and addresses potential risks and ensures that privacy is embedded into your processes from the outset. 
  • Data Subject Access Requests (DSARs) Support: Our consultants assist in responding to DSARs, helping you navigate the process of providing individuals with access to their data and ensuring compliance with the applicable legal requirements.
  • Recording of Processing Activity: We help you establish processes to accurately record your organisation’s data processing activities. This includes documenting the purposes, categories of data, recipients, and retention periods, as required by GDPR.
  • Data Protection Training: We offer comprehensive training programmes to raise awareness and educate your employees on data protection best practices, privacy rights, and their responsibilities in maintaining compliance. This training fosters a privacy-conscious culture within your organisation.
  • Privacy by Design: Our consultants guide you in implementing Privacy by Design principles. They help integrate data protection considerations into the design of your processes, systems, and products from the initial stages, promoting privacy and compliance as core elements of your operations.
