Tacita's sole business model is providing organisations with the tools to become GDPR compliant. For some organisations, this requires a more hands-on approach. Tacita's Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a service is suited to those organisations who wish to have their data protection outsourced and managed by the experts. Whether you are interested in hiring someone for a one off task or on a recurring basis, Tacita's flexible model can be moulded to suit your needs.
Pay Only for What You Need
For some GDPR tasks, you may only need support for a few hours per month. Using Tacita's DPO as a service will be more cost effective than hiring someone new or training existing staff.
Get access to the knowledge and experience of a GDPR company working in all sectors across the UK. Tacita employees are trained in both GDPR law and business best practices.
Independent and objective
We focus solely on GDPR compliance. You can be certain that what we recommend is necessary and we will not try to up-sell software or other services.
Am I Legally Required to Hire a Data Protection Officer?
Some organisations are legally required to hire a Data Protection Officer (DPO). You can find out here if you need to hire a DPO. It is important to note that if you are legally required to have a DPO, this does not mean that you must hire someone to a full-time position. This role can be fulfilled by a part-time employee or outsourced to a GDPR compliance company, such as Tacita.
Even if you aren't legally required to hire a DPO, having an expert on call to answer your questions can be a very cost effective method of ensuring GDPR compliance.
Role of the Data Protection Officer
A DPO has several roles within an organisation:
- Provides general counsel to the organisation in order that it can operate in a GDPR compliant fashion.
- Acts as an independent expert in data protection.
- Ensures that there are appropriate awareness and training campaigns to build a culture of privacy within your company.
- Provides guidance on policies and procedures that need to be put in place.
- Gives support and advice in completing Data Protection Impact Assessments.
- Coordinates Data Subject Access Requests and other GDPR fundamental rights requests.
- Acts as a point of contact for data subjects and the Supervisory Authority.
