DPO-as-a-Service Options Pop Up as GDPR Deadline Looms

The 25 May deadline for compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is looming large, and many businesses aren’t yet prepared, including for the requirement of implementing a data protection officer (DPO). However, as-a-service options could be a new cottage industry springing up to fill the need.

For public bodies and many private businesses, appointing a DPO is a mandatory requirement under the GDPR regardless of the size of the organization or the resources it has. DPO-as-a-service models can thus benefit smaller businesses that may balk at the need to recruit expensive, full-time, in-house compliance staff.
