The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) obliges businesses, whose core activities include the processing of personal data, to appoint an External Data Protection Officer (DPO). The DPO is selected on the basis of their professional qualification and their expertise especially in the area of data protection. They are responsible for the following tasks:
Our data protection experts are TÜV®-certified as Data Protection Officers. If necessary, we can also allocate a TÜV®-certified Data Protection Auditor.
appointment of an External DPO in accordance with Article 37 GDPR
continuous advice on questions of data protection law
support for communication with supervisory authorities
cost control through predefined allocation of hours
compliance with Article 37 GDPR
After a business has created a perfect data protection basis with the help of CLARIUS.LEGAL’s Data Protection Audit, there is a lack of resources to continually ensure the implementation of the catalogue of measures developed by CLARIUS.LEGAL.
In order to take pressure off the internal legal department, the business mandates CLARIUS.LEGAL with the appointment of an External Data Protection Officer (DPO). The DPO is not only responsible for the implementation measures but also functions as a contact person for supervisory authorities and provides support during data breaches.
