By: Advent IM
The continued focus on all matters data protection, brought about by the impending GDPR rollout in a few weeks, has meant that many businesses and organisations have been keenly studying the articles and guidance to discover what they need to do to be compliant, or at least what needs to be put in place to ensure they will become compliant. Some of those businesses and organisations will be discovering they need to appoint a DPO and this revelation may have left some perplexed at the additional cost and unsure how they will go about it. Some may still be unsure if this even applies to them.
With this potential data protection vacuum in mind, Advent IM, longstanding data protection practitioners, consultants and trainers, have stepped in with an advisory service to satisfy both the need for a DPO under GDPR and the need for the business to manage cost. MyDataProtectionOfficer is designed to meet all the GDPR requirements for a DPO, but instead of a full time employee that requires holiday pay, pension, sick leave etc., the team of data protection experts at your disposal are only chargeable for the time you actually use. With the additional reassurance of more than fifteen years in data protection practice, businesses may actually find they are able to use expertise that may have been outside of the pay scale they could have offered to an employee.
Advent IM Director, Julia McCarron said, "We know there has been a lot of confusion and a great deal of fear around GDPR, and many people who have never had to focus a significant amount of time on data protection before are having to do so now. If you meet the criteria for a DPO and have perhaps left it late to work out how to resource one, or you can't get the level of expertise you need on a budget, or simply don't feel your business warrants a full-time resource, then MyDataProtectionOfficer is for you. Not only that by with Advent IM's wider information security expertise and knowledge of implementing standards such as ISO27001, Cyber Essentials and IASME, those using our service benefit from a holistic approach that considers the wider aspects of securing all types of information. What may seem daunting to you, is business as usual to us."
