The data protection officer

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requires certain organizations (whether controllers or processors) to appoint a Data Privacy Officer (DPO) – also known as a Data Protection Officer (DPO). Your DPO is there to advise and train your employees on data protection, performing baseline measurements and internal audits. They also act as a point of contact for the regulator. If you get a question or complaint from someone whose data you hold or process, then your DPO is the one to handle it.

Why you need an independent DPO

Your DPO needs to be independent. They need to impartially assess the security measures taken and guarantee compliance with the various laws on data processing. It’s no wonder many organizations choose to outsource for their DPO. Not just because they lack the capacity and knowledge in-house to appoint a DPO internally or want to avoid the high cost of training someone. An external, independent DPO also forms a useful buffer between your organization and third parties. By deploying professional external expertise, an external DPO has got your privacy and data protection covered, taking it to a higher level.

“We draw on our broad expertise to fill the crucial role of DPO for companies professionally .”

Jeremy Bode – Data protection officer
