Managed data protection service
TeraByte’s virtual DPO service allows you to subscribe to a monthly service giving you access to a remotely accessible Data Protection Officer. The virtual DPO is able to manage and recommend resolutions for data protection and GDPR related questions within your business through means of a cost effective managed service.
What is a Virtual DPO?
A Data Protection Officer is responsible for overseeing data protection strategy and implementation to ensure compliance with GDPR requirements. It is important to assign this role without a conflict of interest; such as company directors and HR representatives for the particular company.
A review of the data that your company holds and how it is managed. This includes how data is captured, disclosed to third parties and if data is exported outside the EEA.
In order to comply with the requirements of GDPR it is advised for a company to conduct a data audit. Getting the data audit correct is paramount as a starting point to implement the necessary changes. With this in mind it is a requirement for TeraByte’s monthly managed DPO service for this to be carried out prior to a contract being accepted. This can be carried out via onsite visit or a remote service.
Monthly Managed Service (Virtual)
This service provides a named contact for the business as their data protection officer on a virtual basis. After the data audit has been successfully completed, TeraByte can provide a monthly service via helpdesk option to ensure the business has access to the advice they need for their compliance requirements.
It is important that your staff are trained in the new business practices required by the new regulation. In order to operate effectively, staff need to be aware of the controls which need to be followed in order to comply.
