What does a DPO do?

DPO stands for 'Data Protection Officer'. He or she is the person appointed by your organisation as the specialist to advise on ensuring that you are compliant with GDPR and Data Protection requirements.

We asked our Data Protection Officer, Nick Richards CIPP/E CIPM FIP, to list some of the things he does for our client firms:

  • Creating/reviewing Data Processing and Data Sharing Agreements
  • Carrying out gap analyses on firms’ data protection compliance
  • Updating Privacy Notices and other mandatory documents to reflect Brexit changes
  • Completing Standard Contractual Clauses and Risk Assessments for international transfers
  • Training staff on data protection regulations
  • Advising on setting up data subject rights procedures and templates
  • Assisting with Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)
  • Advising on landing pages text for webinars
  • Liaising with the ICO

You don't need to employ a full time DPO. You can hire someone part time or indeed just for the hours needed by your organisation. Indeed, there is a a good argument for hiring an external DPO - they are more independent, so can be more candid than perhaps an internal employee and they will bring with them experience from other organisations where they act as DPO.

We offer DPO as a service, where you may hire our DPO by the hour for what you need, or indeed for a one off review or other job. Indeed he can assist with general GDPR & Data Protection advice without being appointed your DPO.
