Data Protection Officer as a Service

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) ensures that your organization complies with the legislation, acts accordingly regarding data protection practices and has general ownership of data processing activities. The service deployment process for DPO as a Service starts with a setup workshop, where the organization's current situation is assessed, and an annual plan is composed outlining the activities and tasks to become compliant. Activities can be divided into reactive and proactive support, which in combination create a comprehensive DPO service. The annual plan is implemented based on a chosen service level, which sets the extent and schedule of the service. This enables us to optimize the service on your organization's needs. DPO as a Service can focus on the tasks described in the GDPR as well as operative data protection activities. The service does not thus have to be limited to mere advisory and compliance monitoring described in the GDPR. DPO outsourced to your organization can take care of other privacy and data protection tasks, e.g. privacy auditing, assessments, reviewing and planning. These other tasks are agreed separately with the customer.

By outsourcing the role of the DPO, you can reach the following benefits:

  • Engage an privacy specialist in data protection activities

  • Outsource data protection activities and focus on your core business

  • Improve the level of GDPR compliance of your organization

  • Mitigate the Risk of a conflict of interest of the DPO
