DPO as a Service (DPOaaS)

DPOaaS is a practical and cost-effective solution for organizations lacking the requisite expertise to fulfill their DPO duties under the GDPR.

By outsourcing DPO tasks to a virtual DPO, you get direct and fast access to expert advice and guidance on data protection law. This will help you address the compliance obligations of the GDPR while staying focused on your core business activities.

In addition, you are assured of a genuinely independent DPO with no conflict of interest with other business services.

Why outsource your DPO?

Appointing a DPO is mandatory for all public authorities and many private organizations under the GDPR. Even where the GDPR does not explicitly require the appointment of a DPO, it is highly encouraged as a matter of good practice and to demonstrate compliance.

Many organizations, particularly smaller ones, may find that the DPO responsibilities are a challenge to deliver, given the breadth of knowledge required of data processing and data security operations and the requisite familiarity with the legal aspects of the GDPR.

The Regulation allows organizations to outsource the DPO role to an external provider. With a shortage of individuals trained to handle DPO responsibilities, a virtual DPO can help your organization address its regulatory compliance demands quickly and cost-effectively.

A complete solution to GDPR compliance

This all-encompassing outsourced DPO service fulfills your DPO responsibilities under Articles 38 and 39 of the GDPR. It includes:

  • Registration as DPO with the relevant data protection authority.
  • Acting as the contact point with the relevant supervisory authority on all data protection matters.
  • A dedicated DPO manager.
  • GDPR compliance monitoring, which includes managing your GDPR compliance action plan.
  • A GDPR gap analysis and remedial action plan (year 1).
  • An annual compliance audit (from year 2).
  • Hands-on support with creating and maintaining your personal data processing register (Article 30 record).
  • Advising on data protection and maintaining compliance with the GDPR.
  • Facilitating staff awareness training.
  • Support to identify personal data processing activities and verify that they are GDPR compliant.
  • A documentation review (policies and procedures).
  • Advice on handling DPIAs (data protection impact assessments), DSARs (data subject access requests), data breach monitoring, management, and reporting.
  • Monthly activity reports and quarterly management reports.

Includes unlimited access to the Privacy Advice Service

  • Receive unlimited privacy advice and support from data privacy experts on data protection laws affecting your organization.
  • Ask your expert any question about complying with the GDPR or other data privacy challenges.
  • Get advice on challenges related to DSARs, data breaches or records of processing requirements (Article 30).
