About Us

The DPO Centre is a leading Data Protection Officer resource centre.


What we do

Our aim is to reduce the burden of complying with data protection laws, enabling organisations to maximise its return on investment in data protection.

To do this we provide:

    • Outsourced data protection officers who work on site with our clients’ teams
    • A full range of training and data protection consultancy services
    • EU Representation services


Our history

The business was founded by Rob Masson, a veteran entrepreneur and thought leader who has been involved in delivering solutions and services to some of the world’s largest and most respected companies.  Rob has advised a broad range of organisations on the most effective strategies to meet their goals and is an expert adviser and respected speaker on compliance with data protection regulations.

He founded the DPO Centre in early 2017 to help organisations identify how evolving data protection legislation will affect them, the steps they need to take to comply, and how when implemented well, compliance builds trust, confidence, loyalty and engagement.


Who we work with

The DPO Centre’s Data Protection Officers work with a wide variety of organisations in a range of sectors including medical and healthcare, software and technology,  retail and ecommerce, finance and insurance, education and schools, public sector, charities and not for profits.

However, please don’t take just our word on our successes.  Please take a look at our case studies and testimonials.



The DPO Centre delivers a range of services to suit your organisation, regardless of its size or complexity

Consultancy Services

The DPO Centre offers ad hoc consultancy, so whether you want to conduct a data discover and mapping exercise, or a gap analysis within your organisation, or whether you simply want to audit how your organisation fares in regard to GDPR compliance, the DPO Centre can help.

Any consultancy exercise we undertake is followed up with a comprehensive RAG (red, amber, green) rated report, so that you and your senior management team can see at a glance which areas of your organisation comply, and which represent the highest risk.

Outsourced Data Protection Officer Services

The DPO Centre offers outsourced DPO services on a ‘fractional’ basis, meaning anything from 1 to 8 days a month.  As part of our service, you will have a DPO who visits you on-site, and who immerses themselves fully in your business to become an integral and respected member of your team. In addition, you will have a nominated secondary DPO, to cover holidays or sickness, and who can step in to support the primary DPO with additional resource when undertaking a large project or resolving an incident.  Alongside this, you also have access to our email and telephone advice line that fills the gaps between visits from your DPO, therefore providing you with a full, month-round service.

Email and Telephone Advice Service

The DPO Centre offers an email and telephone advisory service, available during normal business hours.  The advice line is resourced by our qualified and experienced Data Protection Offers, who provide detailed responses to your queries.  This service is especially useful if you receive a DSAR, or you have a complex question which requires an expert response.

This service is included in our outsourced DPO Service, but is also available as a stand alone package.
