What we do

The DPO Centre exists to reduce the burden of complying with data protection laws and to enable organisations to use compliance as a differentiator that increases organisational value.  We support organisations to establish and maintain robust privacy frameworks and we deliver the knowledge and experience required to understand the risks, improve trust and increase customer and stakeholder engagement.

Our history

The DPO Centre was founded in 2017 by Rob Masson, a serial entrepreneur and thought leader who has been involved in delivering solutions and services to some of the world’s largest and most respected companies.

The purpose of the DPO Centre is 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.

Since then, the DPO Centre has grown exponentially, working with an ever-growing client base and employing one of the largest and most experienced teams of privacy professionals available. In August 2020, the DPO Centre appointed a non-executive board of directors who, between them, have over 100 years’ experience in leading fast-growth businesses and entrepreneurship.

Our #ONETEAM philosophy is a fundamental element of our success, it sets us apart from our competitors, and enables us to consistently build on our core values of Respect, Adapt and Deliver.

Who we work with

The DPO Centre’s privacy experts work with a wide variety of organisations in a range of sectors including finance and insurance, medical and healthcare, software and technology, retail and ecommerceeducation and schools, 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’s help in dealing with a particularly complex DSAR that we received was invaluable. The support and advice that they provided throughout the entire process was extremely helpful… Overall, working with The DPO Centre greatly reduced the significant challenge of dealing with this DSAR

We are really pleased with our DPO from The DPO Centre, who understood our needs and was able to translate them into a workable plan that has greatly assisted our business’s compliance journey. The DPO Centre’s advice and support has assisted us in ensuring that our compliance level has remained high despite the challenges that rapid growth presents.

The DPO I had the pleasure of working with on that project is one of the best DPO/counsels I have worked with when it came to thoughtfully negotiating through a clinical trials-DPA, given his great working knowledge of the GDPR and the crossover with clinical trials regulations in both EU & UK.

It's been really cost-effective for my business to enlist the help of the DPO Centre - not only was I able to get a full impact assessment of my business and resolutions to the issues identified but I have received training on so many aspects of the GDPR.
