Stakeholder Assurance

Demonstrate compliance and good practice to assure your board, investors, supply chain and other stakeholders.

Risk Mitigation

Reduce operational risk by working with us to implement best-practice governance, data management and security processes.

Flexible Role

A statutory or non-statutory role with complete flexibility to use support time for your requirements.


A data protection officer (DPO) is an independent expert that helps a business manage GDPR compliance. It is a statutory role, and the three key tasks of a DPO are:

  • to monitor the business’ compliance with data protection laws,
  • to advise the business on its obligations, and
  • to be a contact point for data subjects and the authorities.

Not all businesses are required to formally appoint a statutory DPO, but every business needs a person or team fulfilling this role in order to stay compliant and avoid fines.

Risk Deputy Remote DPO Services

Our Remote DPO service is designed to support your business with both the management and implementation of UK GDPR compliance.

We will take on a project management role to provide structure to your data protection programme, proactively guide you along your journey to achieving GDPR compliance and help you manage your ongoing legal obligations with a strong focus on efficiency and risk management.

A fixed monthly cost gives you budget certainty with flexible plans meaning that you only need to pay for the level of support you require, and you get the benefit of our years of knowledge and practical experience from private legal practice.

This service can be provided as a statutory or non-statutory role, depending on your requirements.

Our Remote DPO service is truly flexible

Pricing is based on an agreed amount of support time each month, which can be increased or decreased on a monthly basis. We’ll discuss this with you during your initial consultation and make a recommendation for you to consider.

Once we have agreed pricing, this is fixed. Some months you might need a little more support, others a little less – we will never charge you more than we have agreed or any unexpected fees.
