WHEN DO YOU NEED A DPO?


The DPO role is defined in GDPR under Article 37(1)(b) and in the EDPB guidelines for appointing a DPO. Statutorily they are required to;

  • Inform and advise you and your employees about your obligations to comply with the GDPR and other data protection laws;
  • To monitor compliance with the GDPR and other data protection laws, and with your data protection polices, including managing internal data protection activities; raising awareness of data protection issues, training staff and conducting internal audits;
  • To advise on, and to monitor, data protection impact assessments;
  • To cooperate with the supervisory authority; and to be the first point of contact for supervisory authorities and for individuals whose data is processed (employees, customers etc)

The DPO can be a full time person or contractor who should have an expert level of legal knowledge, be independent and have direct reporting to the board.

WHAT TASKS DO WE COVER!


The tasks we cover in the role of a data protection officer are extensive as the position demands. An example of 10 key tasks we can help with include;

  1. Register as your data protection officer of record for formal contact with the data protection commission
  2. Help you attain ISO27701 privacy information management certification
  3. Provide targeted training or staff (HR / Marketing / AppDev etc)
  4. Perform Privacy impact assessments (PIA’s) on data processing systems
  5. Maintenance of records of processing activities (ROPA’s), risk register privacy risks
  6. Handle data subject access requests (DSAR’s) and complaints
  7. Perform data mapping to scan for personal data (PII and Sensitive PII) on a regular basis
  8. Manage privacy related incidents and breach notifications
  9. Advise stakeholders on legislative changes and privacy framework updates
  10. Assist AppDev teams in complying with privacy by design and secure coding practices.

OUR DPO SERVICE BENEFITS


We know that choosing a service provider can be a challenge particularly when DPOaaS is increasing in popularity. But there are important distinguishing characteristics that we believe are important.

  • We don’t just cover GDPR, we know CPRA, Privacy Shield (still binding in effect) and data protection acts
  • We provide a named resource, not a pool of consultants who can change availability and names frequently
  • We dont outsource/subcontract parts of the DPO role as some providers do
  • Your consultant has extensive legal, cybersecurity and of course DPO experience
  • Flexibility and scalability in service offering, ad-hoc or fixed term contract, we have you covered.

The DPO can be a full time person or contractor who should have an expert level of legal knowledge, be independent and have direct reporting to the board.

WHY YOU NEED A DPO NOW!


GDPR was introduced over 3 years ago and introduced many new requirements that companies are obliged to adopt and manage at pain of significant fines and sanctions for non-compliance.

In 2020 the Irish data protection commissioner issued it’s first fines to Tusla & Twitter and saw an increase in customer complaints by 9% over 2019 and increased it’s funding from €1.6 million to €16.9 million in anticipation of future investigations. Their latest report highlights their increased scrutiny of cookie use (based on e-Privacy law), direct marketing violations, employee monitoring issues, access requests and fair proecessing amongst other things.

For companies, meeting these new compliance obligations has been challenging as Mazars reporting bears this out in it’s recent GDPR survey. It reported that only 8% of firms consider themselves as fully compliant while 61% feel overwhelmed by administrative burden and 28% do not have basic record of documentation. Perhaps most importantly 71% of firms reported a personal data breach to authorities.

Other reporting from the Reuters 2020 cost of compliance report tells us that data protection is a top 3 challenge globally for compliance departments as the twin challenges of regulatory overhead and skills shortages hit hard. With this regulatory landscape in mind, it’s not surprising that firms are increasingly looking at all all options including outsourced services as a risk mitigation measure to “stay on top of things” in their approach to data protection.
This is where we see a value add to organisations who are rising to the challenge of GDPR. Our data protection officer service or (DPOaaS) offers you a flexible approach to staffing your compliance function.

Our service offering provides you with a technical and legal savvy resource who can provide interim or extended period services from as little as 8 hours per month on a flat day rate basis. We can register as your DPO of record and handle all interactions with the DPC office and become a central point of contact for formal queries or complaints from customers.


Effective data privacy is based on a solid understanding of legal principles and effective communication. Communication with supervisory authorities, customers, processors and internal stakeholders at all levels of the organisation. This is an area we believe we excel in.
