About Us

The Data Protection Network publishes views, analysis, practical resources and supportive guides. Our content is written, developed and edited by our team of data protection and privacy specialists, our ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS and other contributors.

The DPN was founded in 2014 by Rosemary Smith and Jenny Moseley who for many years ran the data protection consultancy Opt-4. The renowned duo had extensive experience in the marketing and data industries.

In 2019, the DPN launched THE ROSEMARY SMITH AWARD in her memory.

In 2020 Data Protection Network was acquired by members of the former Opt-4 team, along with Rosemary Smith’s sister Caroline Bennett. Our team continues to advise organisations and provides a broad range of data protection services.
