Data Protection Support

You're never alone

The life of the person responsible for data protection in your organisation can be a lonely one. Even if you are fully aware of all your responsibilities and have an internal DPO with the requisite knowledge, there will be times when the resource available does not match the demands of your privacy programme. Sometimes they need skilled resource to take on some of the load or even to act as a 'critical friend' to help ensure they have considered an issue fully.

When you don't have a DPO

If you're not required to appoint a DPO and choose not to make a voluntary appointment, you will still have to monitor your compliance with your privacy obligations and be able to keep up with changing legislation and guidance from the ICO. Your teams and management will have data protection related issues and queries. Unless there is someone with sufficient knowledge within the business you run the risk of the wrong privacy decisions being made - even for the right reasons.

Support for your DPO

Your internally appointed DPO is a central focus for your organisation's privacy compliance efforts. Even when they do not have other roles to fulfil, there will be times when they need access to privacy expertise - especially if they do not come from a data protection or compliance background. They may need someone to act as a 'critical friend' or to take on some of the more routine tasks to allow them to concentrate on the continous improvement aspects of their role.

Additional Skilled Resource

In order to realise the true operational and commercial value of good privacy, you need to be able to react to the demands of your internal teams. Not every organisation has the resources to be able to maintain a full time privacy team responsible for helping to conduct legitimate interest assessments, DPIAs, dealing with Data Subject Rights requests etc. The workload associated with privacy can vary as can the availability of your internal resource - even your DPO or Data Protection Manager needs to take annual leave sometimes.
