From our experience, Data Protection Officers face two challenges that we can help address: resource and internal barriers.
Resource constraints are a common issue across businesses in general, however DPOs can get the rough end of the deal; especially if the role has been assigned on top of another task.
We have a number of services that can help: Data Protection Support and Managed Data Protection. The support service helps you in terms of extra expertise, technical resources and breach management. The Managed service looks after the day to day management of data protection within your organisation, performing DPIAs, responding to SARs and internal queries.
If you have a burning issue and you need to bring about change, our Consultancy Service is outcome based. We will deliver a small change or larger project to move your organisation from where it is now to where you need it to be.
Lastly, the BA and Marriott fines have changed what DPOs are responsible for. All of a sudden, there is a requirement for you to understand appropriate Information Security measures. We can undertake an infrastructure review, build relationships with IT and get Management buy in.
