Our Community

Our Community

Data Protection People has worked closely with the housing sector for several years building up an unparalled understanding of the sector and its data processing. We helped lots of housing associations transition to the GDPR.

We work as data protection officer for several registered social landlords, and provide a range of other services including PCI DSS assessments, ISO27001 remediation and audit work, policy drafting, compiling records of processing activities, supply-chain risk assessment, staff training, data mapping, data breach investigations, surveillance and CCTV audits … the list of work we do in the sector is very lengthy. And of course, our SAR bureau is kept ticking over supporting 50 of our housing clients with tricky subject access requests.

We’ve got a firm footing, good track record, and lots of friends in the social housing sector.

“DPP has helped us in numerous different areas over the last 6 months, from giving our Information Governance Framework a full refresh to answering complex questions related to data protection law.

I have been really impressed with Oliver Rear and Kathy Midgley and in particular the training services they have provided. They not only have a vast understanding of data protection, but they are also great people to work with. I feel comfortable that I can reach out to DPP at any time to help navigate complicated scenarios.”​

Gayle Richardson

DPO, Juniper Education

"We reached out to Data Protection People for their support desk services, they assess our organisation and helped to highlight areas of compliance that needed attention, 12 months after using their support services we decided to use them as an outsourced DPO which really tied the service together.

I would highly recommend using a combination of the outsourced DPO service and DPP’s support desk, their help and advice has been invaluable."

Debbie Walters

Intelligent Health

"I can't recommend Data Protection People enough, they have helped me in so many different areas, no matter how complex the challenge or how large the obstacle, DPP always have the answer.

I can call Oliver or David at any time and have built an amazing relationship with them, in times of frustration they are there to calm me down and create a plan, they are a pleasure to work with."
