GDPR – Outsourcing your DPO ( Data Protection Officer)

March 15, 2018 by adminGDPRRegulation

 GDPR – Outsourcing your DPO What is a DPO?

GDPR – Outsourcing your DPO. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) makes it compulsory for some organisations to appoint a data protection officer (DPO), an expert in data protection law and practice.

Effective from 25th May 2018, the GDPR brings sweeping changes and potential fines of up to 4% of worldwide annual turnover (or €20,000,000).

However, hiring a full-time DPO is likely to be challenging – and expensive – due to a shortage of suitable talent.

GDPR – Outsourcing your DPO

The role of the DPO is to carry out the following tasks:

  • Be timely involved with all issues relating to the protection of personal data;
  • consult with controllers on DPIAs;
  • instruct controllers and processors on their obligations under the GDPR;
  • receive communications from data subjects regarding their rights and processing of their data;
  • monitor compliance with the GDPR and related laws and the controller’s policies; facilitate or carry out audits;
  • attend DP meetings;
  • and cooperate and consult with supervisory authorities.

GDPR – Outsourcing your DPO

DPOs must remain independent !

Controllers not established in the EU need to evaluate whether they require a DPO, as the GDPR applies to non-EU controllers and processors who offer goods and services to EU residents or monitor EU residents’ behavior.
