Data Privacy (GDPR) Services
A pragmatic approach to implementing GDPR and Data Protection (Jersey) Law
Even though 25 May 2018 has long passed, many organisations are still not compliant. This can especially be attributed to the fact that laws are often abstract and difficult to interpret. Your most important challenge is translating the Data Privacy rules into specific actions. BDO consultants know how companies think and function, and how they can help transpose legal texts into an operational plan of action; bespoke, correct, without overkill; pragmatic, transparent and independent. In addition, you should know that the new rules do not just have a legal impact. Processes and technology must be in place too. That is why a multi-disciplinary approach is required; our teams include data privacy specialists as well as IT and cyber security specialists.
Data Protection Officer (DPO)
Organisations that process critical personal data on a large scale must appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO). Due to the specific requirements regarding competences, these profiles are difficult to find. Since a full-time position is usually not required, many organisations choose to outsource the function. Our DPO-as-a-service offers a cost-effective solution.
Are you a service provider and does your service provision cause you to encounter your customers’ personal data? These clients have probably already asked questions about GDPR and the measures you are taking to protect their data. By means of a controls report, you can show your customers that their personal data is in good hands with you. As a service provider, you will then have a powerful commercial asset to convince your customers that you have all the risks under control.
