"Having GO2 Consulting Services as our DPO provider has enabled our school to feel confident and supported as it strides towards GDPR compliance.  Support has been available immediately and any issues have been discussed and advice provided both quickly and clearly.  Audits of school practice have highlighted areas to work towards to increase efficiency and yet have been positive and affirming of the solid routines and practices already in place.  The support, advice via email, and site visits have been detailed, and have represented excellent value for money.  Information has been clear and easy to follow which has made life much easier in school and provides us the time to concentrate on the most important thing - the children!"

Why outsource the DPO role?

Counsel & Advice

The role of a DPO is a specialist one, requiring a thorough understanding of GDPR, broader data privacy management and information security.

Many organisations now require a DPO that wouldn’t have considered it necessary previously, even some very small organisations now legally require one. Hiring a DPO is not straightforward, not only do they demand a fairly high salary (circa £70K per annum) but their availability in the market place is challenging due to the lack of trained resources looking for a role of this nature. Organisations looking to recruit or assign this role from within their existing resources need to be fully aware of the rules relating to conflict of interest.
