The New DIFC Data Protection Law 2020 has introduced the requirement for a Data Protection Officer (DPO) under certain circumstances. A DPO is responsible for overseeing a company’s data protection strategy and its implementation to ensure compliance with the new law.
DIFC companies are currently reviewing whether they need a DPO.
Al Tamimi & Company has partnered with White Label Consultancy (WLC), a boutique data protection and privacy consultancy, to assist DIFC companies with all their DPO needs and help fast track your journey to compliance.
Firstly, we can help you decide if you are conducting High Risk Processing Activities under the new law and, as a result, need a DPO.
If you do, we can help you determine how you are going to resource the DPO role. It is an important role and an important decision for DIFC companies. Some may have a DPO employed already at a group level in Europe. Others will appoint someone from their DIFC team. Others may wish to consider outsourcing the role to a third-party service provider with the required expertise. This is where we can help. If you are considering outsourcing all or part of your DPO function to a third-party service provider, we offer a DPO-as-a-Service (DPOaaS),
Here are some of the benefits:
We can tailor our DPOaaS offering to your needs. It can include:
We can also offer training and ongoing back-office support for your designated DPO, or your local data protection “champion” supporting a group level DPO.
We offer several delivery and pricing options which we can tailor to suit your organisation’s size, requirements, and budget.
If you would like to discuss this DPOaaS offering further, please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org for immediate support.
