Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a Service

Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a Service

Assign an external DPO

As an organisation, you have a duty to appoint a data protection officer (DPO) if you are a public authority or body, or if you carry out certain types of processing activities. But you might have a temporary shortage of such an officer, or you might not yet have or want a structural, internal solution for this.
Privacy Company can provide you with an external DPO: a DPO as a service. The DPO role will be fulfilled by one of Privacy Company’s senior consultants with DPO experience. This person will be registered as a DPO in the register of the Data Protection Authority. This authority will also be the lead authority in case of an investigation or complaint. During holidays or absence, there will always be a backup provided from the Privacy Company team.
