Under the proposed Commission Regulation all public authorities and companies of over 250 employees or whose core activities require systematic monitoring of employees or other individuals, are required to appoint a data protection officer.
We acknowledge that the hiring of a Data Protection Officer may require time, money and resources and sometimes a part-time DPO suffices which is why EU Privacy Protectors offers the DPO role as a service to organisations requiring an interim or fixed data protection officer for a few days a week at favourable terms.
General Data Protection Officer work will include drafting and monitoring implication and application of data protection and related policies, monitoring the implementation and application of the new Data Privacy regulatory framework, ensure that all data processes are appropriately registered and maintained and monitoring, documenting, notifying and communicating data security breaches.
Specifically we will provide the following services in the course of our role as Data Protection Officer of your organisation:
- One free initial video conference consultation to discuss requirements
- Awareness sessions for employees and departments to raise knowledge about the coming legislation and the impact on the organisation.
