We recognise that it's not easy

Data protection is a complex area—it’s confusing, things change all the time, and if you make a mistake… well, that’s when things really start to go wrong.

That’s why you need specialist consultants like us to help. But if you’re concerned that it’ll cost the earth, or that you’ll have consultants crawling all over your place of work for months on end, let us put your mind at rest.

Because we understand the law and how to apply it, our consultants can assess your current state of compliance, and how to improve your policies and procedures, surprisingly quickly. And we appreciate that you’ve got a job to do, so we’re respectful and unobtrusive.

The last thing you want is to be caught out—not with fines of up to £500,000 for a serious breach of the Data Protection Act. So time and money spent with DPC is time and money well spent.
