White Label Consultancy was founded in 2019 in Oslo and has since inception been led by a team with operational experience at an executive level.
The motivation of the WLC founders continues to be to protect corporates from digital risks such as privacy breaches and cybercrime. The founders struggled to receive actionable advice from external consultants while implementing GDPR programs in the corporations they worked for. This motived them to deliver consultancy they felt was missing from the market.
Digital challenges have grown multifaceted due to a proliferation of advanced data processing technologies and the complex cross-functional national data processing in larger organisations. On top of the increased technical complexity, a surge in new legislative requirements means market demand is ever increasing.
The first White Label Consultancy client was a large Scandinavian technology company and since then, WLC has been experiencing a rapid growth as well as sectoral and geographical expansion. WLC has offices in four different jurisdictions, clients in fifteen countries from industries including pharma, telecom, logistics, manufacturing, hospitality, public administration, law firms, event management, retail, and more.
WLC is flexibly organised so that sudden increases in demand can be catered to by recruiting the best possible candidates from a network across Europe. In 2022 André Årnes, the Chief Security Officer of Telenor Group and professor in Cyber Security at the Norwegian Technical University joined White Label Consultancy to head the Cyber Security capacity.
Trusted by clients from industries such as pharma, telecom, logistics, manufacturing, hospitality, public administration, law firms, event management, retail, and more. Operating in multiple geographies including all countries within the European Union.
