External data protection officer according to GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) stipulates the appointment of a data protection officer for many companies in the European Union (EU).
For the vast majority of companies, appointing a legally and technically skilled expert as their external data protection officer is recommended. The officer advises management on matters of data protection, trains the employees and regularly inspects the technical and organisational implementation of data protection in the company.
Benefits of the external data protection officer
Of course, the complex duties of the data protection officer can be performed by an employee of a company. However, this employee would have to be released from his actual duties and given extensive training. You should not underestimate the demands placed on such an employee and the associated costs.
Conversely, the benefits of having an external data protection officer are obvious. The most important advantages you’ll have by utilising our experts are summarised for you here:
