Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a Service

Privaon's Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a Service is an all-inclusive data protection and privacy service, which allows you to outsource the role of the DPO.

Overview | Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a Service

Privaon’s Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a Service allows you to outsource the role of the DPO. The outsourced DPO performs the tasks described in the GDPR allowing you to reach the desired compliance level. Our DPO as a Service is an all-inclusive data protection and privacy service that is not only limited to the tasks and responsibilities of the GDPR.

Data Protection Officer (DPO) ensures that your organisation complies with the legislation, acts accordingly regarding data protection practices and has general ownership of data processing activities. For some organisations, it’s mandatory to have a nominated DPO, but it’s almost always recommended.

Benefits

By outsourcing the role of the DPO, you can reach e.g. the following benefits:

  • Engage an experienced team of privacy specialists with wide-range expertise in data protection activities in various fields
  • Flexibly outsource data protection related activities and focus on your core business
  • Improve the level of GDPR compliance
  • Mitigate the risk of a conflict of interest of the DPO
  • Ownership and structure to privacy & data protection activities

Tasks and Responsibilities

Privaon’s DPO tasks e.g.

  • Informs and advises the customer on privacy & data protection
  • Monitors compliance
  • Provides advice on conducting DPIA’s
  • Co-operates with supervisory authorities
  • Acts as a contact point for supervisory authorities

DPO as a Service can focus on the tasks described in the GDPR as well as operative data protection activities. The service does not thus have to be limited to mere advisory and compliance monitoring described in the GDPR. DPO outsourced to Privaon can take care of other privacy and data protection tasks, e.g. privacy auditing, assessments, reviewing and planning. These other tasks are agreed separately with the customer.

Service Deployment Process

The service deployment process for our DPO as a Service starts off with a setup workshop, where the organisation’s current situation is assessed, and a roadmap is composed outlining the activities and tasks to become compliant.
