Meet our Founder, Derek Mann RISC, MSyI (Dip)

Derek’s successful 30-year career in the UK Police Service spanned high-risk operational environments to strategic business change programs. His tenure culminated in a Chief Superintendent rank, and in 2010, he retired after leading a national change program at the National Policing Improvement Agency. Derek then transitioned into the private sector, embarking on a career as a management consultant in the Police, Justice, and Security sectors, with a strong focus on business transformation. His journey extended to working internationally in conflict-affected regions, accumulating invaluable insights into security challenges

As a Registered Independent Security Consultant holding a professional diploma in security management, Derek brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to CaPS, specialising in data protection, anti-money laundering, and public safety

When it comes to data protection, I believe in the ethical use of personal data, not the monetised exploitation for commercial benefit at the expense of the individual. I view implementation of data protection practices as a business change programme rather than a compliance one, moving to a cultural shift from a tick box exercise. This is where the cost of data protection becomes an investment not a necessary evil and a hit on the bottom line

At CaPS, we’re not just consultants; we’re your partners in trust, compliance, and ethical excellence. Join us in shaping a future where businesses thrive through unwavering integrity and enduring trust.

“Running an International membership organisation in the financial sector presents a wide range of challenges. Derek and his team at CaPS have provided an invaluable resource especially in relation to the provision of Anti-Money Laundering Supervision. In recent times the IAB has been spear heading change in this area with the development of a comprehensive AML Inspection regime. The positive impact being made can be strongly attributed to the expertise CaPS have provided in re-organising the back office functions while also providing a scalable outsourced compliance inspection system which can absorb our plans for growth”.

I had a fantastic experience with Derek at CaPS who has recently helped with a data protection agreement and data breach procedure, as well as privacy policy and cookie consent for my website. From the outset Derek was communicative, extremely attentive when listening to what I required, thorough when preparing my documents and managed to deliver in a short time frame Derek also included the chance for me to complete a UK GDPR awareness course, which has proved invaluable in increasing my knowledge of this vast subject and has impressed my clients, as they can see I am taking protection of their data very seriously. Due to Derek's excellent service I now have peace of mind that I am fully UK GDPR compliant, which is a huge weight off my shoulders.

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the online training for our team. We have recently put our 2 new recruits through the CaPS Ltd GDPR awareness course online. The course has given our team a clear and insightful look at how to consider and manage our client’s data and privacy. The feedback from the team is that the course was clear and easy to understand, more importantly, it gave them an accurate sense of how important the topic is to the fundamentals of our business. Thank you!

We are ready to discuss your requirements
