Virtual DPO

Pragmatic and tailored approach to GDPR compliance

Virtual DPO

Enables you to access not just one, but a team of experienced and qualified data protection practitioners, each with their area of specialism, e.g., dealing with the regulator, i.e., the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), advising on challenging subject access requests (SARs), conducting data protection impact assessments (DPIAs), developing records of processing activities (ROPAs), managing personal data breaches, improving information security, developing awareness presentations, and transferring data to third countries using standard contract clauses (SCCs).

With our service, you can gain expert practical advice, guidance and support, as and when needed.  You can also ensure there is no ‘conflict of interest’ between the DPO and other business activities i.e., the DPO should not be a company director or HR representative.  You can also be confident of complying with the latest regulatory and legal developments, as URM’s Team closely monitors any clarifications/interpretations on the GDPR/DPA from sources such as the ICO.

  • Totally flexible arrangement with site (in person or remote) days delivered at a frequency set by you
  • Ad hoc guidance and advice on all aspects of data protection
  • Urgent response services for those time critical matters and issues
  • Annual GDPR auditing to provide assurance to key stakeholders.
