Description

The GDPR – outsourcing the DPO role

The GDPR recognises the DPO as a key player in facilitating regulatory compliance, with their appointment mandatory for all public authorities and many private organisations. Even where the GDPR does not specifically require the appointment of a DPO, it is highly encouraged as a matter of good practice and to demonstrate compliance.

Many organisations, particularly smaller ones, may find that the DPO responsibilities are a challenge to deliver, given the breadth of knowledge required of data processing and data security operations, and the requisite familiarity with the legal aspects of the GDPR.

The Regulation allows organisations to outsource the DPO role to an external provider. With a shortage of individuals trained to handle DPO responsibilities, outsourcing these tasks and duties can help your organisation to address the GDPR’s compliance demands while staying focused on your core business activities.

  • No conflict of interest between the DPO and other business activities.
