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