Why you need to take action now!

Pressure to hire in privacy resources is driven by many dynamics in healthcare and financial services. New state regulations such as CPRA, HIPAA privacy rule updates, historic levels of penalties by the FTC, State AG’s and Data Protection Commissioners have all upped the ante for stakeholders. Mis-management or slow adoption of required changes to privacy obligations has become a very expensive endeavor as many reports on breaches bear out.

In addition, the exponential growth in data within organizations, increased complexity of technology and an ultra-compeitive talent pool is not helping the situation.

Lastly, theres the pace of projects within organizations, most businesses report an increment of 8-25% increase in project workload year on year yet the personnel support is roughly half that.
Models such as DPOaaS offer a good alternative for hiring managers who need flexibility with a cost and time saving dividend.
