This major charitable performing arts venue prides itself on its ranking as one of the world’s busiest theatres. Each year, it stages over 2,000 performances and events and employs in excess of 1,000 permanent members of staff.
Challenge: Our original introduction to this charitable organisation had been to provide advice and support with their GDPR readiness project. Despite the organisation not legally requiring the role of Data Protection Office (DPO), their newly appointed Legal Counsel approached Securys looking for outsourced DPO as a service support. Having worked with Securys in a previous organisation, the General Counsel recognised the importance of ensuring that the personal data of all its stakeholders whether employees, donors or visitors was processed securely and lawfully.
Solution: Securys nominated an experienced DPO to assist the charitable organisation. Only ever a phone call or an email away, the outsourced DPO is on hand to provide the necessary guidance and specialist advice. Tailored to the specific needs of the performing arts venue, the advice provided ranges from handling queries and DSAR requests in a timely manner to keeping their RoPA updated, undertaking supplier due-diligence, privacy supporting paperwork, breach support and liaison with the regulator if required.
Working both on and offsite, the outsourced DPO has provided reassurance, keeps the organisation informed of relevant legislative changes as well as provided specialist advice on specific queries raised by the organisation.
Securys continues to work with this organisation.
