Who Are Data Protection People? 

Data Protection People (DPP) are a data protection and information security consultancy that works with industries across the globe. In 2015, Phil Brining, David Henry, Robin Hill, and Andrew Mason came together to create Data Protection People in response to the EU GDPR coming into force. 

The GDPR, Data Protection Act (DPA) (2018) and PECR are complex legislative documents that many organisations need help understanding. So we decided to fix this. How? By making data protection simple. 

Over the years, we have developed over 90 products and services which help organisations achieve compliance and improve their competitive edge. We’re proud to be one of the leading providers of data protection services in the UK.
