Outsourced Privacy Officer

They are there to help maintain and improve your data protection compliance.

Outsourced Privacy Officer Overview

A privacy officer is a vital appointment in any organisation these days although it is often sensible and cost-effective to consider an outsourcing arrangement.

Service Delivery

The job of the privacy officer ultimately is to ensure that your business operations are carried out in accordance with data protection legislation.  They are tasked with building resilience into your operations and building a privacy-aware culture.

Your outsourced privacy officer does this by ensuring you have implemented reliable policies and work practices that everyone is made aware of through training and awareness.  They become the point of contact internally for data protection and privacy questions ensuring an accurate and consistent approach is taken.

They will help with the appointment of data processors and the initiation of data-sharing arrangements.  They will ensure that you have evidence of handling personal data in accordance with the data protection principles and will advise on security incidents/personal data breaches and requests from data subjects to exercise their various rights such as the right to be forgotten.

Your outsourced privacy officer is backed-up by the DPP team of consultants and support desk so is really well resourced.

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    We have been receiving complaints over the last few weeks from people who have received unsolicited direct marketing calls from a company called The Protection People.  We should like to point out that we are Data Protection People and have nothing to do with those calls.

    We have been advising those people who have contacted us that they should make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) using this link https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/nuisance-calls-and-messages/spam-texts-and-nuisance-calls/.  It would be helpful to the ICO if you knew the number that called you, the date and time of the call and what the call seemed to be about.

    You might also want to register your phone number with the telephone preference service (TPS), a national suppression service which should cut down calls of this nature as it is not lawful to make unsolicited direct marketing calls to numbers registered on the TPS.  You can register your number here https://www.tpsonline.org.uk/register.

    We know that these kind of calls can be distressing and intrusive and you have our sympathy.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss it with us otherwise we’d encourage you to report it to the ICO as notifying them of this kind of practice enables them to investigate and take enforcement action where necessary.  You can see the action that has been taken by the ICO here https://ico.org.uk/action-weve-taken/enforcement/.
