What DPO as a service can Offer as Services:

8 main things you should be doing now to prepare:

1. Prepare for data security breaches

Put in place clear policies and well-practised procedures to ensure that you can react quickly to any data breach and notify in time where required.

2. Establish a framework for accountability

Ensure that you have clear policies in place to prove that you meet the required standards.

Establish a culture of monitoring, reviewing and assessing your data processing procedures, aiming to minimise data processing and retention of data, and building in safeguards. Check that your staff are trained to understand their obligations. Auditable privacy impact assessments will also need to be conducted to review any risky processing activities and steps taken to address specific concerns.

3. Embrace privacy by design

Ensure that privacy is embedded into any new processing or product that is deployed.

This needs to be thought about early in the process to enable a structured assessment and systematic validation. Implementing privacy by design can both demonstrate compliance and create competitive advantage.

4. Analyse the legal basis on which you use personal data Consider what data processing you undertake.

Do you rely on data subject consent for example, or can you show that you have a legitimate interest in processing that data that is not overridden by the interests of the data subject? Companies often assume that they need to obtain the consent of data subjects to process their data.

However, consent is just one of a number of different ways of legitimising processing activity and may not be the best (eg it can be withdrawn).

If you do rely on obtaining consent, review whether your documents and forms of consent are adequate and check that consents are freely given, specific and informed. You will bear the burden of proof.

5. Check your privacy notices and policies

The GDPR requires that information provided should be in clear and plain language.

Your policies should be transparent and easily accessible.

6. Bear in mind the rights of data subjects

Be prepared for data subjects to exercise their rights under the GDPR such as the right to data portability and the right to erasure.

If you store personal data, consider the legitimate grounds for its retention –

it will be your burden of proof to demonstrate that your legitimate grounds override the interests of the data subjects. You may also face individuals who have unrealistic expectations of their rights.

7. If you are a supplier to others, consider whether you have new obligations as a processor

The GDPR imposes some direct obligations on processors which you will need to understand and build into your policies, procedures and contracts.

You are also likely to find that your customers will wish to ensure that your services are compatible with the enhanced requirements of the Regulation. Consider whether your contractual documentation is adequate and, for existing contracts, check who bears the cost of making changes to the services as a result of the changes in laws or regulations.

If you obtain data processing services from a third party, it is very important to determine and document your respective responsibilities.

8. Cross-border data transfers

With any international data transfers, including intra-group transfers, it will be important to ensure that you have a legitimate basis for transferring personal data to jurisdictions that are not recognised as having adequate data protection regulation.This is not a new concern, but as failure to comply could attract a fine of up to the greater of EUR20m and 4% of annual worldwide turnover, the consequences of non-compliance could be severe. You may want to consider adopting binding corporate rules to facilitate intra-group transfers of data.
