About Us

A bio photo of Paul Rogers - Founder Data-Privacy.ie


ounded in early 2020 by Paul Rogers, Data-Privacy.ie is a data privacy and cyber security focused virtual service provider based in the North East and operating internationally. We see ourselves as a specialist resource for businesses operating in multiple jurisdictions who need flexible support arrangements in the form of a virtual DPO or CSO role for a limited engagement.
We identified a need for this type of service as support models have moved remotely in a Covid-19 economy. We also found that many firms need more immediate help than ever but are often constrained by their ability to find and train employees internally in security and legal skills and budget allocation constraints.
