A Data Protection Officer (DPO) is a position within an Organisation that acts as an independent advocate for the proper care and use of personal information. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) all businesses that hold any form of personal information on any individual within the European Union, may need to legally appoint a data protection officer. A company may appoint a single DPO to act for a group of companies or public authorities. If a DPO covers several organizations, they must still be able to perform their tasks effectively, taking into account the structure and size of those organizations. This means it should be considered if one DPO can realistically cover a large or complex collection of organizations. It should be ensured that they have the necessary resources to carry out their role and be supported with a team, if this is appropriate. DPO as a Service (DPOaaS) is an specialised outsourced service offered by Privacy Desk as a part of our data protection services, to help companies reduce costs on data protection resources, but still get the best expertise and a cost-effective key to their data protection and privacy compliance.
