Data Protection Officer Service



A lot of businesses are concluding that it makes sense to outsource the duties of a DPO (Data Protection Officer) because their role is complicated and varied. For a start, DPOs have to be independent of the organisation that they are performing duties for and must be able to perform their tasks without the fear of being sacked or penalised in any way. It also makes a lot more sense for there to be one point of call to deal with all your data protection obligations. If you’d like to read more about the role of DPOs and what they must do, read this article.
