Many businesses have and maintain substantial amounts of personal data but cannot afford to have a dedicated data protection officer in post. Some may choose to ignore the issue and hope for the best whilst others might designate a member of staff with limited knowledge and experience of data protection to take on the role alongside their other duties.
Both of these can lead to failures in compliance with the risk of regulator intervention, monetary penalties, enforcement action and negative publicity. It also means that opportunities to monetise data are often lost.
By using us as your external data protection officer you can have access to expert ad hoc or fixed hours advice and support for a lower cost than a dedicated in-house privacy resource.
