DPO

as-a-Service

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines the leadership role of Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a key role in facilitating regulatory compliance. Although GDPR does not specifically require the appointment of a DPO for every organization, it is highly encouraged as a matter of good practice and due diligence demonstration to appoint one.

Many organisations, especially the smaller ones, may find challenging to assign the DPO’s responsibilities internally, given the breadth of knowledge required in data processing and data security fields, legal aspects of GDPR as well as the time and cost needed for delivering these services. On the other hand, the Regulation allows organisations to outsource the role of a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to an external provider and this is where CDMA Services Ltd DPO as a Service offering comes in!

Our company provides you with the entire expertise of our team and can appoint a person as your company’s data protection officer (DPO) if needed.  Our DPO as a Service solution is flexibly tailored to your business unique requirements, in close collaboration with top level management and key personnel, with the scope of helping your organization integrate an end to end comprehensive data privacy framework.
