Leaping the DPO divide: All about DPOaaS (Tash Whitaker)
Aug 04, 2021 Season 2 Episode 26
k royal and Paul Breibarth

On this week of #SeriousPrivacy, Paul Breitbarth and K Royal meet up with Tash Whitaker, who is an outsourced DPO as a service. Not all organizations have the capability to organise the DPO role in house. Maybe they are too small, or they are just lacking the right people or qualifications to take on the role. For those companies, the outsourced DPO is a great option to consider.  

A year after the entry into force of GDPR, the IAPP estimated that already some 500.000 organisations has appointed and registered a data protection officer, and that number has only grown since. And Europe is of course not the only region in the world that knows the mandatory requirement to appoint a DPO. And then we are not even talking about the voluntary appointment of a DPO, in order to ensure that organisations have their data processing operations under control.

Join us as we discuss challenges and surprises in an outsourced role of DPO, helpful both for companies who realize they need a DPO but not sure how to obtain one and for those privacy professionals thinking of making the leap off the corporate bridge. And always, the solution for a successful internal or external DPO is the TrustArc Platform - we don't talk about products much in the podcast, so please do contact [email protected] for information on our solutions - especially Privacy Central!
