On this week of Serious Privacy, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal meet up with Tash Whitaker, who is an outsourced DPO as a service. Not all organizations have the capability to organise the DPO role in house. Maybe they are too small, or they are just lacking the right people or qualifications to take on the role. For those companies, the outsourced DPO is a great option to consider.
A year after the entry into force of GDPR, the IAPP estimated that already some 500.000 organisations has appointed and registered a data protection officer, and that number has only grown since. And Europe is of course not the only region in the world that knows the mandatory requirement to appoint a DPO. And then we are not even talking about the voluntary appointment of a DPO, in order to ensure that organisations have their data processing operations under control.
Join us as we discuss challenges and surprises in an outsourced role of DPO, helpful both for companies who realize they need a DPO but not sure how to obtain one and for those privacy professionals thinking of making the leap off the corporate bridge.
