DATA PROTECTION OFFICER as-a- SERVICE

Data Protection Officer as-a- Service

While being compliant to regulations, maintaining a reputation with your customers and employees is critical for the long term success of your company.

Depending on the size and the content of information a company is processing, assigning a Data Protection Officer is mandatory or voluntary. Even though your company do not necessarily need to assign a DPO, it is always a good practice to assign a responsible person for the whole privacy framework.

According to GDPR it does not matter whether the DPO is assigned internally or externally. The main advantage of assigning an external Data Protection Officer is that it totally eliminates the “independence” concerns, as internal resource (dependency) may create conflict of interests and endless debates within the company.
