DPO as a Service
In many cases, the Data Protection Officer (DPO) figure is mandatory; in other cases, it is a proper choice, to inform and assist the Data Controller or Processor in managing the processing of personal data
Among the indications set forth in the Regulation (EU) n.2016/679 (GDPR) is the establishment of the DPO (Data Protection Officer), a key figure to ensure the proper functioning of the Personal Data Management System.
For some organizations, the appointment of a Data Protection Officer is mandatory, while for others it may be an appropriate voluntary choice.
The DPO is mandatory in any case where processing is carried out:
- by a public administration or a body thereof;
- by companies with more than 250 employees;
- by companies whose main activities consist, due to their nature, aim or purpose, in the systematic and regular monitoring of data subjects, or if the Data Controller's main activity involves large-scale processing of sensitive data, data concerning health or sex life, genetic data, or data of a judicial or biometric nature (excluding, however, judicial authorities).
Axitea's "DPO as a service" is essential to outsource the DPO’s figure and tasks, by providing expert professionals with multidisciplinary skills in data protection, information security and legal aspects, whose task will be essential to assess and organize the management of personal data processing - and therefore their protection - within the company, so that they are treated in a lawful and relevant way.
Outsourcing the DPO is an appropriate choice for most companies, to relieve themselves of the duties and ensure the appropriate autonomy to this role, therefore avoiding a dangerous internal conflict of interest.
