Data Protection Officer as a Service - DPOaaS
DPOaaS is now available to all customers that purchase the GDPR in Schools (GDPRiS) cloud platform.
DPO as a Service is a practical and cost-effective solution for schools, trusts and academies that don’t have the data protection expertise and knowledge to fulfil their Data Protection Officer (DPO) obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Did you know? Your DPO cannot be someone who influences the day to day handling of school data i.e. School Business Manager or Finance Manager. This is to ensure the prevention of any conflicts of interest.
Outsourcing the DPO role
The GDPR recognises the DPO as a key player in facilitating regulatory compliance, with their appointment mandatory for all public authorities.
Many schools, trusts and academies, particularly smaller ones, may find that the DPO responsibilities are a challenge to deliver, given the breadth of knowledge required on data processing and data security operations, and legal aspects of the GDPR.
The Regulation allows organisations to outsource the DPO role to an external provider. With a shortage of individuals trained to handle DPO responsibilities, by outsourcing these tasks and duties you will get access to expert advice and guidance that can help your organisation to address the compliance demands of the GDPR while staying focused on your core business activities.
