Compliance advice and support, reassuring your clients and freeing your time.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) made it compulsory for some, but not all organisations to have a Data Protection Officer (DPO). Public authorities or regular processors of personal data need to register a named individual with the ICO.
But whether you legally need one or not, outsourcing your DPO needs to specialist is a very good idea. Compliance may help you tick the boxes you need to win new business, but using specialists, gives you the reassurance that you're actually putting in practice the best practices to protect you and your data.
Typical DPO assistance can include;
Assistance with completing your clients GDPR compliance questionnaires
ISO27001 and Cyber Essentials readiness
Including policy and procedure support and advice
Data breach support and response (including liaison with the ICO)
Data subject access request support (SAR)
GDPR and information security awareness training
What is a DPO:
"A Data Protection Officer (DPO) is an employee within your organization who is responsible for understanding the GDPR and ensuring your organization’s compliance. The DPO is the main point of contact for the data protection authority. Typically, the DPO has knowledge of both information technology and law."
