DPO Services

Take the strain out of managing your data protection

Even if an implementation project has been completed, organisations still struggle to efficiently manage their GDPR compliance on a daily basis. How do they efficiently respond to a data breach, or to a data subject request? What’s the best way to manage the data processing register? How do organisations seamlessly perform Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)? All these tasks may be done over time, but they are not integrated!

Data Protection Officers (DPOs) are not mandatory for all organisations, under EU law. However every organisation in the EU must comply with and manage GDPR, by having a Data Protection Management Platform. So what should they choose for data protection and who is responsible for it ‘in-house’? What kind of governance is required?

To answer to these challenges, every organisation needs a certifiable management system for their data protection, combining expertise and technology. This is very similar to any other existing management system, such as information security (ISO 27001), except that it applies to personally identifiable information.
