Trust Keith is an early stage Data Protection company helping leaders of UK scale-ups effortlessly manage their Data Protection and Data Compliance so they can focus on growing their business with confidence. We combine real humans with technology to help scale-ups, like Thriva and Student Beans, successfully comply with all data regulation, reduce their breach risk, and protect their staff online.
We’re called Trust ‘Keith’ because Data Compliance is often associated as a ‘boring’ and ‘unsexy’ subject, stereotypically conducted by individuals with names like ‘Keith’ [credit to Family Guy], and we’re here to change that!
