There are many approaches to the provision of Data Protection oversight in an organisation. Smaller organisation simply need a Data Protection representative, while others are mandated to have an Officer, and non-EEA businesses will require a representative. These positions may be outsourced.
Outsourcing avoids the challenge and cost of recruiting a full time Data Protection Officer or representative, and the associated risks due to the shortage of qualified and experienced skills in the market. It also brings a depth of expertise.
We provide the expertise required to fulfill this role and work closely with your management team to provide advice on GDPR and oversight of your compliance process. Your outsourced DPO or representative will get to know your business and answer data protection questions relating to day to day activities to protect your organisation from unnecessary harm.
Your outsourced DPO or representative will also operate as an interface with the office of the Data Protection Commissioner.
Public bodies and organisations whose core activities require regular and systematic monitoring on a large scale, or the processing of special data on a large scale are obliged to appoint a DPO. Others may wish appoint a DPO voluntarily, an EU representative or simply require expert support. We will always discuss your requirement with you to understand how we can complement your current resource and provide a level of support that is right for your organisation.
