GDPR Implementation & Management
As a Service
The GDPR recognises the DPO as a key player in facilitating regulatory compliance, with their appointment mandatory for all public authorities and many private organisations. Even where the GDPR does not specifically require the appointment of a DPO, it is highly encouraged as a matter of good practice and to demonstrate compliance.
Many organisations, particularly smaller ones, may find that the DPO responsibilities are a challenge to deliver, given the breadth of knowledge required on data processing and data security operations, and the requisite familiarity with the legal aspects of the GDPR and hence DPO as a service is a practical and cost-effective solution. Smaare Consulting has 3 different subscription models for DPO as a service depending on the size of operations.
