What can I expect from my DPO?
You can expect advice from an expert in privacy and data protection.
We have the benefit of advising hundreds of businesses globally on privacy and data protection issues, particularly in the technology, media and life sciences sectors. We pride ourselves on blending this experience with the current regulatory guidance and enforcement activity, to ensure we advise an approach that's right for your specific business, informed by how others in your sector are approaching similar issues.
How often would we connect?
Although you would appoint Mishcon de Reya as your DPO, you would typically be allocated one or two lead individuals who would be your 'go to' advisors for any DPO related queries.
Your DPO will be a key guide for you on any privacy or data protection issue – we speak to some of our clients every week, whereas others we speak to once every two months – it's completely up to you. We adopt this approach to give you as much control as possible over your budget. In terms of what we are typically asked to help with, you can ask us to join discussions around new products and service lines, new ways of handling data, queries from patients, and data breaches. You can also ask us to join you in customer negotiations, help respond to due diligence questions, and any other data protection or privacy related matter.
What’s included and how much does it cost?
Within the base appointment package, we'll keep you up to date with the latest goings on in privacy and data protection, via our email updates. You can also expect us to let you know of any urgent updates and key legal decisions that are particularly relevant to your business. There's no limit to the number of team members you can add to our DPO update distribution list.
Our base appointment fee is £500/month, plus any applicable taxes. This includes our appointment as your DPO, and our tailored email updates.
