Meeting the requirements of the broad, ever-changing privacy regulatory landscape can be a challenge. Finding a proven methodology, and a partner you can trust, to build, implement, and manage your privacy program can be an even bigger challenge. To address this challenge, HPS provides a variety of Privacy Compliance services, to include Data Privacy Officer (DPO) consulting.
Tasks typically performed by a DPO can include monitoring compliance, which includes collecting information to identify and analyze processes, analyzing and checking compliance of processing activities, and conducting audits to ensure GDPR compliance and to address potential issues. The DPO is also responsible for informing and advising on issues and recommendations on data handling to the controller, or processor, and educating employees on data protection and handling. The DPO also serves as the POC for data subject inquiries and provides information on data subject’s rights pertaining to the organization’s data protection practices, withdrawal of consent, and the right to be forgotten.
