Risk and compliance: Data protection

User engagement

"Champion privacy and compliance with comprehensive data protection strategies, building trust and ensuring the responsible handling of sensitive information within your organisation."

Data protection is important for several reasons - it safeguards sensitive information, maintains privacy, and prevents unauthorised access, which is crucial for maintaining trust with stakeholders and complying with regulations.

The consequences of a data breach for any non-profit organisation can be profound – and non-compliance with data privacy laws can lead to reputational damage and expensive fines which can have devastating consequences for organisations.

Why Adapta

The team at Adapta has been working in the sector for many years, helping charities and others put the right compliance and protection measures in place. We are closely familiar with the compliance requirements of current legislation as well as with the other, related, legal and statutory standards. Our team of consultants brings that knowledge – combined with practical experience of what is appropriate and achievable in the sector – to the particular challenges facing your organisation.


We have helped many charities, membership organisations and other non-profit organisations with their Data protection projects. Below are examples of just a few of the organisations we have worked with.

What our clients say

"Unlike many consultants, Adapta won’t tell you what you expect to hear. They will be very honest and challenging and, even if some of what they say is uncomfortable to hear, it means you end up getting better advice."

“To achieve the level of change we saw in 6 months without the support of Adapta would have been impossible. Shortly after completing the project the pandemic hit. Without the work completed by Adapta, our organisation would not have been able to weather the pandemic and keep working.”
