LONDON, DECEMBER 10th 2019

NormCyber Limited, an NCSC award winning Cyber Security as a Service (CSaaS) Provider, has announced that One YMCA has adopted their specialist Data Protection as a Service Offering.

Based in Watford and supporting communities across Hertfordshire and beyond; One YMCA, part of an international movement rooted in more than 120,000 communities around the world, helps close to 100,000 people of all ages, faiths and backgrounds every year through services including the provision of accommodation, Family work, Health and Wellbeing, Training and Education, and support and advice. In the process of caring for the wellbeing of vulnerable and homeless young people One YMCA takes great care and places utmost importance in the handling and treatment of personal data.

Following a rigorous evaluation on how best to continue to meet GDPR requirements and deliver best practice on data protection, One YMCA has selected norm’s Data Protection as a Service solution.

Guy Foxell, CEO at One YMCA said “we considered very carefully all options, including employing a dedicated in-house DPO, but ultimately, we concluded that through norm’s lawyer-led service we would retain a similar level of control and gain access to round the clock specialist advice and support. at a fraction of the cost”.

Robert Wassall, Head of Data Protection at norm said “we act for a broad spectrum of both for-profit and not-for-profit businesses and are delighted to welcome One YMCA as a customer. We very much look forward to providing support and advice in an area which is of crucial importance to every organisation, no matter what their size or sector and which is rapidly evolving”

We were looking for a virtual DPO service that offered all of the benefits of a fully qualified data protection lawyer, without the overheads of an in-house hire. The DPaaS solution from norm. has been invaluable in helping us to ensure we respect the integrity of our customers’ personal information, while using it to continue to deliver differentiated products and services which support our growing customer base.

CSaaS allows me to step away from multi-vendor management as the Security Operations Centre coordinates all of the technology for me.

We were in the market for an independent Data Protection Officer service that was well versed with both UK and EU regulators. We’re thrilled to have acquired this service knowing that an expert is available 24/7.

The speed of your Data Protection Officer’s response was very impressive – it was far quicker than I would have expected even from an in-house DPO
