Get access to expert advice and guidance that helps you address the compliance demands of the GDPR
With a shortage of individuals trained to handle DPO responsibilities, outsourcing these tasks and duties can help your organization address the compliance demands of the local data protection regulation as well as the GDPR while staying focused on your core business activities.
Did you know that the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) allows organizations to outsource the role of a Data Protection Officer (DPO)? Data Protection Officer (DPO) ensures that your organization complies with the legislation, acts accordingly regarding data protection practices and has general ownership of data processing activities.
Cognitive’s DPO as a Service makes it possible for your organization to outsource the role of a DPO. The outsourced DPO performs the tasks described in the data protection regulation allowing you to reach the desired compliance level.
The service includes:
DPO as a service once outsourced to Cognitive can take care of other privacy and data protection tasks, e.g. privacy auditing and planning. These other tasks are agreed separately with the customer.
Benefits of an external DPO
Congnitive’s DPO as a Service starts off with a workshop, where the organization’s current situation is assessed, and an annual plan is composed outlining the activities and tasks to become compliant. Activities are then divided into reactive and proactive support, which in combination create a comprehensive DPO service. The annual plan is implemented based on a chosen service level, which sets the extent and schedule of the service. This enables us to optimize the service to your organization’s needs.
