Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a Service

Data Protection Officer

The Personal Data Protection Act 2012 or more commonly known as PDPA or by the name of its governing body, PDPC, regulates the collection and use of personal data. Since it was first implemented, multiple amendments and additional regulations have been enforced over the years to increase the protection of personal data. ForBis professionals offer services to assist companies to remain compliant with these regulations in a world where digitised data collection, utilisation and exchange is a key business process.
While a DPO doesn’t have to be a full-time role, it does require specialist data protection expertise. Having access to an experienced and knowledgeable outsourced DPO is a cost-effective solution for improving information security and compliance with data protection laws, such as the PDPA. Failing to protect personal data can not only lead to significant financial penalties from regulators, but also risks reputational damage to your organisation. By following tested and established best practices, an outsourced DPO helps to protect the data your organisation processes on your customers, suppliers and employees, keep your organisation informed and advised about data protection and where necessary, cooperate with regulators on your behalf.
