Under The PDPA What Are The Requirements of Appointing a DPO?


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.

With outsourced DPO services from Relentless, your company could save as much as Baht 400000 on appointing an outsourced  Data Protection Officer when compared to hiring an internal recruit.

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