Appointing a Data Protection Officer is becoming mandatory for all data-driven European businesses. Our external Data Protection Officer product provides crucial expertise and an affordable alternative to employing a privacy expert to ensure ‘smart compliance’ with EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
How do I know my company needs a Data Protection Officer?
GDPR requires you to appoint an internal or external Data Protection Officer if your core activities consist of personal data processing operations which, by virtue of their nature, their scope and/or their purposes, require regular and systematic monitoring of individuals on a large scale. Monitoring includes all forms of tracking and profiling on the internet, including for the purposes of behavioural advertising.
You can use our free privacy risk assessment tool to check whether your company could benefit from our service. You can also read our White Paper to find out why having a Data Protection Officer is becoming a must for many European businesses.
What will the Data Protection Officer do for my company?
Data Protection Officer will monitor compliance with EU and national data protection laws, notably GDPR, company policies and best practices. This compliance would include:
- Data Protection Impact Assessment in case of the introduction of new analytics techniques or new technologies such as IoT, Big Data analytics, or Cloud Computing;
- the assignment of responsibilities, awareness-raising and training of staff involved in processing operations, and the related audits;
- your reaction in case of any Personal Data Breach.
The Data Protection Officer works directly with the highest management level of your company and is ready to answer any difficult questions arising out of your day-to-day data processing.
You should read our comic strip for easy understanding of the Data Protection Officer role. Our ‘smart compliance’ approach in performing these tasks will enable you to both avoid the pitfalls of unlawful data processing, and to increase consumer trust in your data analytics and other operations.
