Data Protection Officer as a Service (DPaaS)

Embed Privacy by Design and Mitigate Data Privacy Risks

Ignorance of the law or regulations is never an excuse and cannot prevent an organization from being penalized. Hence, ensuring data privacy is critical, especially concerning the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) or EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

GDPR, for example, is the world’s strictest data protection regulation and can be applied to organizations, including US businesses, nonprofits, and universities that do not have offices in EU locations or employees in the EU. The United States does not have a single regulatory body like the GDPR in the European Union. However, 51 US-based tech CEOs ranging from Amazon, AT&T, Dell, IBM, SAP, Salesforce, Visa, Mastercard, and JP Morgan Chase have petitioned Congress to enact a Federal Privacy Law. Different states have different regulations in force. Likely, a GDPR-like law will soon become a reality in the US.

Should Your company have a DPO?

DPOs are required by the GDPR and CCPA in some but not all cases.  For the GDPR specifically the need for a Data Protection Officer is specifically outlined in Article 37:
While your company may not need to comply with GDPR or CCPA in the short run, a federal data privacy law will be coming to the United States in the near future.  Understanding local and global privacy regulations and managing data privacy and compliance regulations will only grow in importance.
