Virtual DPO Services in the Midlands and London

Being an independent voice to assure GDPR is followed to protect your business against fines and security breaches.

Economit understands the burden of setting aside precious time and resource to comply with the many requirements of GDPR. We’re here to make it easier and simpler for you to achieve, so you can benefit from the changes sooner.

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has placed stricter governance rules around data protection which are more complex and time-consuming to comply with and can result in harsher fines than they did previously.

GDPR ensures that data subjects have greater rights to access and control the information that companies process about them, businesses have tighter regimes for the management of data and the DPO which has to be appointed dedicates time to monitor compliance. In certain cases, a Data Protection Officer (DPO) is now a mandatory appointment for undertaking large-scale processing of ‘special category personally identifiable information’ (PII).
