A Data Protection Officer.

Did you know….? The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) has estimated that over 75,000 Data Protection Officers will be required worldwide as a result of the GDPR.

The appointment of a Data Protection Officer is a legal core obligation for many organisations operating in the European Union (EU) and is the cornerstone of accountability to facilitate compliance with the GDPR.

Article 37 of the GDPR has explicitly recognised the potential for external consultants to provide Data Protection Officer services on the basis of a service contract. The Article 29 Working Party (now the European Data Protection Board) has elaborated on the structure of such a service, focusing on the efficiency benefits, independence and accessibility.

Gemserv can provide full outsourced data protection officer services (oDPO) or support in-house management through the virtual data protection service offering (vDPO). As part of this, we will assist or carry out the core functions of the DPO, depending on the needs of the clients.

Gemserv also offer the flexibility for our Data Protection Officers to be registered in Ireland or in the UK, to safeguard against the effects of Brexit.
