Practical Data Protection Advice You Can Count on

Why do I make an honest statement of my expertise in this area of law?

Besides holding an LL.B (Honours) and a Master of Arts degree in International Tourism and Aviation Management, I also hold a Professional Data Protection Officer Certification, obtained at the University of Maastricht – European Centre for Privacy and Cybersecurity, Faculty of Law (ECPC-B DPO), and a CIPP/E certification from the International Association of Privacy Professionals. I keep an updated Continuing Professional Development log, and currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in law at the University of Reading with a research focus on EU Data Protection and Privacy law. Furthermore, I am a certified England and Wales Paralegal, Fellow of the Institute of Paralegals (F.Inst.Pa.) and a member of the Professional Paralegal Register (PPR Tier 4), specialised in IT, Data Protection and Privacy Law.

Data Protection Compliance Is a Key Component to the Success of Your Business, trust me as your external DPO

The role of Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a business security leadership role mandated by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Data protection officers are responsible for overseeing data protection strategy and implementation to ensure compliance with the GDPR and DPA 2018 requirements. DPOs are also responsible for educating the organisation and its employees on essential compliance requirements, training staff involved in data processing and conducting regular security audits. Furthermore, they serve as the point of contact between the company and the Supervisory Authority (ICO oversees activities related to data protection in the UK).
