All over the world we are seeing data protection legislation compelling organisations to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO).
The recent data protection legislation from Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the newly published Abu Dhabi General Market (ADGM) data protection act are examples of that. Also, the DPO is expected to be a central component of the upcoming UAE Federal Data Protection Law.
Have you considered using an external DPO?
Based in UAE, Denmark, Norway and Poland, White Label Consultancy offers DPO as a Service (DPOaaS) to help companies comply with the various legal requirements of data protection legislation in an efficient manner by allowing our clients access to our pool of highly experienced Data Protection Officers.
The Data Protection Officer (DPO) role is at the heart a range of different data protection regulations globally, e.g. GDPR, DIFC, the ADGM and the Egyptian Data Protection Law. The laws focus on the accountability of each organisation for its handling of personal data, and the DPO role is critical to demonstrate and facilitate compliance.
In addition, the laws may require you to be able to document that your DPO holds the necessary professional qualifications and performs their job independently.
