The GDPR requires organisations to take measures regarding the processing of personal data. In many cases, this means that you have to take measures to act in accordance with privacy law.
In some cases, an organisation needs to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO). The DPO has the task to advise the organisation on how to comply with the GDPR. By having a designated DPO, you can prevent your organisation from several privacy and data protection related risks. For example, in the case of a data breach or a fine from the supervisory authority and all the negative publicity that come with these.
Does your organisation not have the tools or knowledge to appoint a DPO? In that case, we can help you with our DPO-as-a-service.
With DPO-as-a-service, Considerati will register itself as the DPO of your organisation. The DPO is supported by our team of experts. We will take care of all the tasks and responsibilities that are expected from a DPO. These tasks are, for example, monitoring compliance with privacy regulation of provide trainings for the employees of your organisation.
Additionally, as a DPO we will have an advisory role. We will gladly give you advice on all privacy related issues or questions regarding the legitimacy of the processing of personal data.
We will always take your ambitions and goals into account of your organisation, which can be found in the Privacy Governance Program. If your organisation does not have such a program, then we can help you developing one.
