We Are Mark gracey GDPR

We were founded by Mark Gracey in 2017 (as the Digital Compliance Hub), who has specialised in data protection and related regulation in the digital space since the 1998 Data Protection Act. His expertise is backed up by a Computer Science Degree (so he can speak “techy”) and an LLM in Computer and Communications Law (so he speaks “legal” too).
