Does your company have policies and procedures for data protection in place?
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in full effect today. This regulation has a higher standard for data protection and privacy than any other law in the world. It even offers more protections to non-EU citizens, such as U.S., Canadian, and Australian residents that are dealing with EU companies or services. This GDPR legislation was created to give people back control of their personal data including access, correction and deletion rights on their information; broad consent standards which must be agreed upon before processing people’s personal data; bans on transferring people’s personal information outside of the EU without clear notice; strict rules about how businesses can use people’s information for marketing purposes, among others. With the introduction of GDPR Data Protection laws, it is even more important for companies to take extra security measures with their data.

What Is Data Protection Officer As A Service
A Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a person who provides advice on how to ensure that the organisation respects its obligations in relation to personal data processing. Data Protection Officer as a service is an innovative, scalable and cost-effective data protection solution for businesses of all sizes. The high cost and complexity of hiring a DPO can be daunting to many companies, which leaves them vulnerable to fines or other penalties from government agencies. DPO as a service solves this problem by providing the necessary expertise in-house at a fraction of the price and without any upfront costs.
Key Responsibilities of A Data Protection Officer
The responsibilities of a Data Protection Officer can vary depending on the size and industry of the company. A small business may have one person filling all the roles, while larger companies with multiple locations may have several different people in charge of different parts of compliance. Generally speaking, the responsibilities of a Data Protection Officer include but are not limited to:
- advise the organisation on how best to comply with data protection legislation;
- develop and implement policies that ensure compliance with data protection law, in consultation with and approval from the board of directors or senior management;
- monitor compliance with these policies by staff members.
