Project Description

Data Protection Officer Service


Outsource the role of Data Protection Officer with Data-Privacy.ie

  • Do you need someone to fill a data privacy officer position in your organization?
  • Are you struggling to find competent resources with legal, technical and communication skills to fill that role?
  • Do you want to fill that gap today?

If you answered yes to one or more of the questions above, then our Data Privacy Officer as a Service (DPOaaS) is the solution!

WHAT IS IT?


DPO as a service is a cost-effective solution for an organisation without the necessary time or data protection expertise.

A governance and compliance service, with measurable ROI.

WHY YOU NEED IT?


Many organisations may find that the DPO responsibilities are a challenge to deliver, given the amount of knowledge required on data processing, data security, operations, and the practical aspects of the GDPR. This is often coupled with the lack of role independence of internal personnel as required by GDPR regulations and the cost overheads of a FTE.
  • Outsourcing these responsibilities, tasks and duties can help your organisation to address the compliance demands of the GDPR

  • The Data Protection Officer (DPO) will assist you organisation on matters relating to privacy and data protection as well as GDPR compliance

  • The DPO will provide guidance on privacy and data protection tasks, staff training, and can serve as an independent expert both internally as well as towards customers and any supervisory authorities

  • The DPO can take over all key tasks required by the GDPR and all roles can be adjusted towards specific needs. The role of an outsourced DPO includes the tasks described in the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, article 37-39

WHAT YOU GET!


The annual GDPR audit will assess the policies, procedures and activities used by the organisation when processing personal data. This will identify any risks and assist with the implementation of mitigating actions to ensure ongoing compliance with GDPR.

  • Outsourcing these responsibilities, tasks and duties can help your organisation to address the compliance demands of the GDPR

  • The Data Protection Officer (DPO) will assist you organisation on matters relating to privacy and data protection as well as GDPR compliance

About our Service


GDPR was introduced over 2 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.
By all accounts, meeting this new compliance burden has been challenging two years on as Mazars reported 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.
In other reporting from the Reuters 2020 cost of compliance reporting 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 adopting looking at all all options including outsourced services as a risk mitigation measure and “stay on top of things” approach to data protection.
This is where we at Dapro Technologies, 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 short term ad-hoc pay per use services or longer “fixed-term” contracts which are designed to help you with specific or more general data protection officer tasks.

Register us as your DPO of record and we’ll handle all interactions with the DPC office and become a central point of contact for formal queries or complaints.

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.
