OUTSOURCED DATA PROTECTION OFFICER
Your Questions Answered
Under The PDPA What are the Requirements of Appointing a DPO
DATA PROTECTION OFFICER
The PDPA stipulates The appointment of a data protection officer (‘DPO’) is a mandatory condition under the PDPA (and the future sub-regulations).
DPO Requirements: The DPO is required if conditions under the PDPA (and the future sub-regulations) are met, for example, the core activity of the personal data controller or personal data processor is the collection, use or disclosure of sensitive personal data.
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.
Benefits of Outsourcing The PDPA Role
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.

We asked Robert to come in and do an audit for us in the lead up the introduction of PDPA in Thailand. He spent a week with us and was forensic in his approach. His report has left us a lot to think about and act upon. Compared to other firms offering the same thing, the price was very reasonable and they have experience in the SE Asia market, so the advice is refreshingly specific rather than generic. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Relentless Privacy Services. Dr T. J. Jefferis, Second Master
