OUTSOURCED DATA PROTECTION OFFICER

Who Needs a Data Protection Officer?

Article 37 of GDPR states that your organisation must appoint a dedicated Data Protection Officer (DPO) if:

  • You are a public authority or body
  • Your core activities involve “large scale, regular, and systematic monitoring of individuals”
  • Your core activities involve “large scale processing of special categories of data or data relating to criminal convictions and offences.”

Yet even if that doesn’t apply to you, appointing a DPO is still a good idea.

For one thing, it benefits your reputation by proving you’re an organisation who takes data protection seriously. For another, it ensures there’s a dedicated person on hand to help you maintain compliance and handle privacy-related tasks like Data Subject Access Requests, freeing up the rest of your staff and resources to focus on growth.

Why Outsource DPO Services?

Of course, there’s nothing to stop you from hiring an internal DPO as long as they’ve got the experience and expertise needed to do the job effectively, but let’s be honest:

That can be a costly, complicated, and time-consuming process.

Go for an external hire, and you’re left dealing with a lengthy and expensive recruitment process, all while mission-critical compliance issues go unattended to.

Look internally, and finding someone suitably qualified is only half the battle. You then either have to pull them away from their core duties to work solely on data protection or otherwise meet GDPR regulations which state that their other duties don’t present a conflict of interest.

There is an easier way.

With outsourced DPO services from Relentless, your company could save as much as £20,000 on appointing an internal Data Protection Officer when compared to hiring an internal recruit.

What’s more, we get to work right away, meaning you start getting the GDPR support you need as soon as you need it.
