The EU GDPR introduces the role of Data Protection Officer (DPO) as an individual possessing specific qualities and skills.  Privacy is no longer just a compliance or security issue.  It has become a strategic topic at boardroom level since significant changes to the European legislation were announced.  In today’s business environment, increasing focus is being placed on privacy and (cyber) security compliance, governance and incident management.  To be successful, companies need privacy professionals who are capable to manage privacy and security in a risk based and integrated manner.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the biggest change to data protection laws in the past 20 years.  It brings with it many new opportunities, but also various challenges for organisations to become compliant.  The Hansal Data Protection Officer (DPO) Service is a cost-effective solution for organisations that don’t have the internal data protection expertise to meet their DPO obligations under the GDPR.

Not all organisations need to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO), it is, however, advisable to have access to a Data Protection Officer (DPO) who can advise and guide your organisation to remain compliant and act as a source of information.  By outsourcing Data Protection Officer (DPO) tasks and duties to Hansal, you get access to expert advice and guidance that helps you to meet the compliance requirements of the GDPR while staying focused on your core business activities.  Hansal is recognised as an industry leader in compliance and data protection.
