Does your firm need a DPO?
Even where an organisation is not required by the GDPR to appoint a DPO, they are encouraged under the regulation to appoint one.
If member state law requires or if your business:
- Processes large amounts of sensitive personal data; or
- Regularly monitors or profiles individuals or
- Is a public body or authority.
You must appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
A DPO is expected to have an expert understanding of data protection law and practices. Where an employee takes on the DPO role, you must ensure their role does not result in a conflict of interests.
Selecting a Data Protection Officer

Our support includes providing ongoing support and training to in-house DPOs and we can work alongside your newly appointed DPO as they come fully up to speed. This service can be extended to allow us to act as an interim DPO in the event of vacations of temporary vacancies.
