Law Firm serving as your Outsourced Data Protection Officer (DPO)  

The Data Protection Officer (DPO) has a key role in data protection compliance under the GDPR.

Appointed on the basis of their professional qualities and specialized knowledge in data protection, the DPO's mission is to monitor compliance with the regulations and Information Technology and Civil Liberties law, and to inform and advise data controllers and their processors independently. 

The designation of the DPO is mandatory:

  • When the processing is carried out by a public authority or a public body;

  • When the core business of the data controller or processor consists in processing operations that require regular and systematic large-scale monitoring of the data subjects;

  • When the core business of the data controller or processor consists in large-scale processing of sensitive data and data on criminal convictions.

The GDPR also foresees the possibility of setting up an outsourced DPO: as such, over and above mere compliance, DEROULEZ AVOCAT supports its clients by providing the services of an outsourced data protection officer.
