Data Privacy Services provides Data Protection Officer (DPO) services to organisations that are now legally required to appoint one under GDPR.
Our DPO service starts from as little as £195.00 + vat per month.
Why outsource the role?
The role of a DPO is a specialist one, requiring a thorough understanding of GDPR, broader data privacy management and information security.
Many organisations now require a DPO that wouldn’t have considered it necessary previously, even some very small organisations now legally require one. Hiring a DPO is not straightforward, not only do they demand a fairly high salary (circa £70K per annum) but their availability in the market place is challenging due to the lack of trained resources looking for a role of this nature.
Organisations looking to recruit or assign this role from within their existing resources need to be fully aware of the rules relating to conflict of interest.
Note – typically Senior Managers, Company Directors and individuals responsible for data / information management cannot be a DPO. Also, there is a legal requirement for the DPO to be appropriately qualified.
