What is a DPO?

Under the GDPR, organisations must appoint a data protection officer (DPO) if they are a public authority or body, or if they carry out certain types of processing activities, including the processing of special categories of data.

If you need to appoint a DPO, our Data Protection Officer as a Service (DPOaaS) is an affordable way to meet your statutory requirement, while providing your business with extraordinary resilience.
