Your GDPR initial assessment may get you to the conclusion that a Data Protection Officer needs to be appointed or, if not mandatory, that appointing one is at least recommended.
This DPO mandatory or recommended role could mean:
- Appointing an unwilling and untrained employee – pointless;
- Hiring a part-time or full-time worker – costly;
- Do nothing – risky.
There is a better way.
GOlegal acts for many organisations as a Data Protection Officer (DPO) or as a Deputy DPO.
- As DPO, we take over the whole mission. This implies that we proactively investigate, document and rectify the potential non-compliance within your organisation and that we assist the company management in staying compliant with evolving GDPR requirements.
Based on cutting edge expertise, we support the decision process of the company management/board with up to date, informed and pragmatic advice.
- As a Deputy DPO, we support the acting DPO with expertise or capacity where needed.
This service includes:
- Identification of deviations and shortcomings with regards to GDPR guidelines & constraints;
- Full control over your data protection issues;
- Implementation of relevant yet pragmative corrective actions;
- Proactive information of the management about relevant development related to GDPR;
- Continuous maintenance of documents such as the Data Protection Register;
On the technology side, for our mid-sized customers or big corporations, we can provide an IT platform to pilot and track your compliance level throughout all entities, departments and stakeholders.
This support brings you not only a better compliance level but also and more importantly, peace of mind and focus on your core business.
In the process, most of our customers get side-benefits:
- Better data management and exploitation;
- IT cost reduction;
- Better vendor management etc.
